Course information

Intensive English Course in Amsterdam

The Intensive English Courses at MixTree Languages are designed for students who are ready to dedicate time to improving their speaking, strengthening their grammar, and growing their vocabulary.

The following courses start every 4 weeks:

  • The A2 Course for pre-intermediate students who can already speak a little about themselves, but may need to strengthen some areas of basic grammar and vocabulary
  • The B1 Course for intermediate students who are ready to deepen their understanding of English grammar and expand their vocabulary on a variety of topics
  • The B2 Course for upper-intermediate students who will tackle more advanced grammar structures and focus on vocabulary tasks that require a stronger command of written and spoken English

At every level, the focus of the intensive courses is the same: communication!  You will review, learn, and remember grammar and vocabulary through constant interaction and fun speaking tasks.

No one else has our teachers.

All MixTree Languages teachers are native English speakers, CELTA or TEFL-qualified and many are Delta-qualified and they have at least 5 years of teaching experience.

Our popular ‘Activate your English’ programmes are effective because:

  • You activate your grammar through a focus on speaking, which makes it easier to remember
  • Your learning is supported by high quality course materials. You will receive a folder with reference materials the first day of your course.You don’t need to buy any books!
  • Your experienced teachers guide you to develop personalised learning goals
  • You learn in a friendly, fun atmosphere and have the opportunity to socialise and practise your English also through your class WhatsApp group and at our Language Exchange meet-up (free online)

All our ‘Activate your English’ programmes are:

  • Taught by professionals: we only work with highly experienced and certified (minimum CELTA or TEFL qualification) native or bilingual English teachers.
  • Expertly designed: our MA qualified Learning Manager uses her deep understanding of the learning process and professional materials to create effective learning programmes.
  • Focused on you: your detailed level assessment will place you on the correct course and our teachers will support you to develop personalised learning goals. You will receive regular feedback on your language to help you improve.
  • Highly interactive: we use an innovative approach to maximise the time you have for speaking, discussing, and role playing in class. Speaking is the most effective way to improve your English.

Distance and cleaning – COVID-19 guidelines of the RIVM:
