INFO MEETING - BYA20 AND 21 B2 level English LS 2019

14.01.2019 15:36

A meeting will be held on Thursday 7th February in room Z250 at 14:00 for all students who are interested in attending the BYA20 and BYA21 lower advanced (B2) level General English courses. At the meeting we will decide which courses will run, and when. At least 10 students must be able to attend at one time for a course to run.

If you would like to attend BYA20 or BYA21 but can’t come to the meeting, please email Mr Turland at, letting him know if you would like BYA20, BYA21 or don’t mind which you do, and the times when you are free. The information you provide will be taken into account at the meeting.

The offered courses

BYA20 and BYA21 are general English courses. They are not First Certificate exam preparation courses despite what it says on the intranet. The lessons have a similar structure to BYA3-BYA8. There will be a lot of speaking but also some time spent on grammar, vocabulary and listening. Our BY003 exam (previously BY52), which is often needed for the Erasmus + programme, is based on material covered in this course (and in BYA7/ BYA8), although the courses are also suitable for people just wishing to practice their English. It is not necessary to be exactly B2 level and you don’t need to have taken BYA7/8 in order to attend – all students who are upper intermediate level or higher and like speaking English are very welcome!

Additional information

If you are an FA student you can attend BYA20 or 21 for free providing you have a “free semester” available and you haven’t done the BY002 (BY51) or BY003 (BY52) exams yet.

Other students from faculties other than FAST are also welcome to attend, though in many cases they will need to pay. For information on payment please check this address:
