About Course

This is the course where all students usually start from. This course will cover the four areas of general English skills (Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing) and will help you develop the skills required for each level.

The students will learn to improve ability to:

  • understanding spoken English.
  • communicating in common situations by using language functions and the appropriate vocabulary.
  • reading and understanding high frequency vocabulary and simple sentences.
  • writing paragraphs with accurate spelling and punctuation and understanding and using accurate grammatical structures.

*General English outcomes vary depending on the level.

Regular Classes

All the courses follow a textbook. Teachers will also provide you with other material like different textbooks, films, websites and, sometimes, they will take you on excursions to places that are related to the topics or themes you are studying. You will usually have one or two teachers for regular classes, and different teachers for special focus modules. Regular classes run four days a week in the morning and five days a week in the evening, and the teachers will work closely with you to make sure all aspects of your language development are covered. Progress tests will be conducted twice every five weeks with a full term test every five weeks. However, some classes and levels will only be available upon demand.

Special Focus Modules

All the students will have one hour a day of Special Focus Modules. This means you can choose a special focus to help you learn in the area of English where you need the most help. Special Focus Modules include: conversation, current affair discussion groups, listening, reading, writing, grammar, punctuation and so on. However, the Special Focus Modules we run when you are studying will be dependent on demand. In this class, you will have a new topic appropriate to your level and your teacher will sometimes change for this last hour. You will have the opportunity to do each of the modules at least once every two weeks.

– Upper Grammar & Vocabulary
