English Result Intermediate is designed to take a strong A2 level learner to B1 or B1+ on the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) scales. The core syllabus (see Resources below) covers and goes slightly beyond B1 in terms of tasks, texts and language. A learner at a B1+ level will be quite proficient at performing the communicative Can-do tasks in the lessons. To see how the syllabus relates to the CEFR, go to English Result Elementary CEFR Mapping (see Resources below).
By the end of the course, learners should be able to maintain conversations in a range of contexts, as well as describe experiences, dreams, hopes and ambitions, and narrate events as a linear sequence of events. They will be able to understand straighforward factual written texts on subjects related to their own field of interest and follow the main points of extended discussion and radio news bulletins. They will also be able to write detailed descripions and accounts of experiences, including their feelings and reactions.
