Social and legal issues.- C1 vocabulary

Tras más de 10 años de experiencia y de trabajo en nuestro centro de Villarreal, y casi 1 año en el de Burriana, os volvemos a agradecer la confianza en nuestros profesores para prepararos los exámenes oficiales, así como seguir aprendiendo idiomas.

Este curso sois varios los que os estáis preparando el nivel C1 de inglés, y eso nos hace sentir muy orgullosas de nuestros alumnos, ya que es un nivel ya avanzado.

Para todos los alumnos e interesados en este nivel, vamos a ir ampliando el contenido en nuestro blog, pues nos hemos percatado que no disponemos de mucho material de C1 por aquí.

Así que para comenzar, os traemos el tema ‘Social and legal issues‘ en ‘C1 vocabulary‘.
