This is an intensive short for the English section of Phase 2 of this year’s Rio Branco ‘concurso’. This is an individualised course where students’ needs and correction are dealt with separately.

This 8 to 10 week/unit online course is specifically for those who need to prepare for phase 2 on the 2017 (there is a separate course for the TPS) Rio Branco concurso. We allow this 2 weeks of flexibility as we expect the student to be under a lot of pressure at this time.

Strategies for the TPS and pratice will be included in the first phase the course. This first section make sure you writing the correct way so you have a good chance of passing the minimum score needed to classify. After this, the second phase will give you TPS and Phase 2 full tests for you to have enough practice under pressure as would encounter on the day of the Phase 2 English test. See more details below for more details.
