New course: Cambridge Bootcamp

Have you been thinking about taking the Cambridge exam but still feel like you need some additional preparation? Perhaps you have already taken a course here at Saxion or externally but for different reason, you were not able to finalise your preparations. You are not alone! For academic year, 2022-2023 the Saxion Language School will be offering a brand new course called Cambridge Bootcamp to help get you in exam shape! The first one starts in October 2022.

We’ll start off with a mock exam and pinpoint the exact areas you still need to work on. This course will meet just six times, every other week, with a focus on speaking and exam tips. In between the physical classes, you’ll have a schedule to practice aspects of the exam such as: writing and Use of English.

There will also be a chance to practice the full speaking exam twice on Teams with another candidate and you’ll get detailed feedback from the instructor. Just like in a real bootcamp, there will be modifications for assignments you might need more help on. We’ll only be working with Cambridge materials. The class will combine written and online materials as well as short videos and quizzes to practice thematic vocabulary.

For this first round of bootcamp, we’ll be focusing on staff members hoping to take the Cambridge C1 Advanced or Proficiency exam.

A prerequisite for the course is that you have already take a Cambridge course at Saxion or externally. It’s also important that you can attend all the live sessions and have sufficient time to try all potential writing tasks (6) at least one time prior to the exam.

Trainer Lara Bold is looking forward to helping you prepare for this professional goal! Let’s make a plan!

Free; Chemistry of work happiness. Inspiration webinar (English version)

After this webinar, you will have concrete tools to better cope mentally with hybrid work. You will learn what happens in your body, how you produce natural reward substances and how to feel good about yourself.

We work more and more hybrid, partly at home and partly at work. This means that we also work together differently and meet colleagues less physically. When you work at home, your body produces fewer reward or happiness substances, which can make you feel less good. In addition, you may suffer from the changed work pattern. Now it's different, sometimes you go to work, sometimes you stay at home all day. How do you limit the disadvantages of this change but keep the advantages?
