General English

When you arrive, you will take a placement test and be placed accordingly based on your CEFR level. Classes start every Monday on a continuous enrolment basis. There is no time limit on how long you should stay in a level, but generally, when you start a level you should be ready to move up after around 12 weeks. Weekly progress tests and monitoring from teachers will help you develop your skills.

The aim of the General English course is to:

  • Develop your four skills (reading, writing, listening and speaking) using authentic and functional language;
  • Enhance your communicative skills so you are able to communicate effectively both in and outside the classroom;
  • Develop knowledge and understanding of English grammar and confidently apply it accurately
  • Expand your vocabulary;
  • Lay a suitable foundation for further study of the language.
