Advanced Level English lessons ZS 2016 – Meeting

All students who are interested in attending the BYA20 and BYA21 lower advanced (B2) level General English courses should come to a meeting on Thursday 22nd September in room Z250 at 14:00.

At the meeting we will decide on times for the classes that suit the most people. At least 10 students must be able to attend at any one time for either of the classes to run.

If you would like to attend the course but can’t come to the meeting, please e-mail Mr Turland at, letting him know the hours when you are free. The information you provide will be taken into account when deciding if and when the courses will open.

About the offered courses

BYA20 and BYA21 are general English courses at B2 level. They are NOT First Certificate exam preparation courses. The lessons have a similar structure to BYA3-BYA8. There will be a lot of speaking but also some time spent on grammar. Listening and vocabulary will also be covered. Our BY52 exam, which is often needed for the Erasmus + programme, is based on material covered in this course (and BYA7/ BYA8), although the courses are also suitable for people just wishing to practice their English.

Optional homework will be given during both courses. Some of it will take the form of Cambridge exam practice, vocabulary and reading tasks. The homework is meant to provide 'extra value' for students. 

Conditions for attendance

FAST students must have the BY002 (BY51) exam (and an unused free semester too) to attend the course for free; there will be a special BY002 exam session on Thursday 29th September for students who need the exam so they can attend our higher level courses.

Other people from outside FAST are also welcome to attend, though in many cases they will need to pay for the course. If you are an FA student you can attend these courses for free providing you have free semesters and you haven’t done the BY002 (BY51) or BY52 exams yet – otherwise, the FA won’t pay for you. For information on payment please check this address:

It is not necessary to be exactly B2 level and you don’t need to have taken BYA7/8 in order to attend these courses – all students who are upper intermediate level or higher and like speaking English are very welcome!
