Description: 

The course aims to enable participants to achieve a Common European Framework of References for languages (CEFR) to the level of B1 - independent user, in Police English Language.

The main content of the course will be presented in the virtual learning environment where participants will engage in activities extending and practising their Police English Language skills.

The duration of the course is eight weeks. The curriculum content will focus on online self-paced, as well as, trainer guided activities and related assignments in the following subject knowledge areas:

  5. Schengen
  6. Counterterrorism
  7. EU Policy Cycle

Reading, speaking, writing and listening skills will be practiced in the context of the abovementioned topics. Grammar teaching activities and official reports writing related to police specific communication will also be incorporated in the course. The course will be task-based and it will use a varied teaching methodology which will include:

  • Self-paced activities
  • Teacher-learner and peer-to-peer interactions
  • Asynchronous (e.g. forum) as well as synchronous communication (e.g. chat, weekly online meetings)

The course ends with the submission of an exit test that is assessing the actual knowledge level of the learner based on the CEFR requirements.
