English for the TU 1

English for Non-Academic Staff

English for the TU 1 is a 7 week course designed for everybody who needs to refresh their English. The course will help you to work more confidently and effectively in the English-medium environment.

The course addresses the basic skills you need in practice: writing emails, speaking English, attending business meetings in English, etc. We pay special attention to common mistakes that Dutch speakers make, as well as dealing with cultural differences. The course book has been specifically developed for the TU, with attention to common university language (think of lecture, credits, periods, quarters, etc.).

All non-teaching staff can take this course. Though you should have a basic knowledge of English to take the course, there is no official requirement. As the groups are small (10-12 participants), you will get personal attention, and you will have the chance to identify your own problems and get tips on how to improve your English, based on your current level. You will need to do about two hours of homework each week.

For further information contact the languages secretary (015-278 3646; EnglishUnit@tudelft.nl) or Sören Johnson (015-2782793; s.f.johnson@tudelft.nl).
