Practical English 6
FEKT-HPA6Acad. year: 2018/2019
The written test at C1 level of the Common European Framework for Languages (CEFR) examines whether students understand a wide range of long and complex texts, including those related to their own area of speciality, recognise their implicit meaning and can locate specific information. Next it tests the knowledge of grammar and vocabulary (e.g. phrasal verbs, collocations, idioms, differences in the meaning).
