Inhalt und Ziele

This comprehensive course of 30 hours is designed to lift participants from the B1+ CEFR level to the top of B2 in English proficiency, equipping them with the language skills necessary to function capably anywhere English is spoken as an international language. It is also a bridge to starting on the path to excellence in English with the subsequent C1 course.

The course features:

  • Total Skills Development: This course encompasses all English language skills: listening, speaking, reading, and writing; and building fluency, accuracy, and confidence in real-world contexts.
  • Experienced Instructors: Learn from highly qualified instructors with extensive experience in teaching English to civil servants and professionals. Benefit from their insights and guidance.
  • Learn With Professional Peers: This course is reserved exclusively for Austrian civil servants who frequently engage in international interactions, or who expect to do so in the future. It addresses the specific language challenges and demands faced in these situations, and integrates ideas and materials that are relevant to the real work of public administrators in international contexts.

Cambridge Certification: As an optional component, you can prepare for and take the Cambridge B2 Exam to officially certify your language proficiency. This internationally recognized certification will objectively document and demonstrate your progress in English.


With a maximum enrollment of less than 10 persons, participants will be fully engaged in working with the trainer in accelerating their English language development to where they need it to be.
