Year 2: reading & listening

This year you’ll have to do your reading and listening exam.
You have practised these skills through Taalblokken but it may be wise to also look at a practise exam (online). Please click on the link here for some example exams.

You will be doing a B1 exam, so please try these out during the lesson/at home.
Check out the tips below as well!


Week 12

While I’m away, you can continue your work. Please check below what is expected of you!

Year 1: please do the two exercises in your book (exercise 1 and exercise 4, as discussed in class) and check whether or not you have finished grammar and spelling A1 online.

Also do the speaking assignment as handed out in class. If you’ve lost it, click here to download it! Check out the videos below to prepare for your assignment.

Year 2: since (most of) you are running behind, I expect you to be on target by the end of this week!!!

Make sure you have finished both chapters 4 and 5 in your book by then (the listening bits are in the library online). Finish chapters 6, 7 and 8 of your vocabulary translations. Once you have finished these, continue with chapters 9 and 10. Click here for the Top 20 Business Vocabulary.

You need to have finished A1 and A2 of your spelling and grammar online, so check if you have finished this yet! If you have: please continue with B1.

Step 4: you’ve become really excited after reading the vacancy and you’re really eager to get this job. Now you need to write your application letter (in Word). Obviously you’re not going to apply for real (even though that would be cool), but please send me ( your application instead.

Include your experience in communication (in this case you may exaggerate a little), social media, your love for travelling and learning (and so on).
