Morning classes – General English 15 hours per week x 10 weeks

During the mornings you will be allocated a class according to your level of English. We will always send you the entrance test prior to your arrival unless otherwise instructed. Our teachers will use a course book that follows a sequential approach to grammar and vocabulary learning. They will also use a number of other resources and materials either in text form or from a selection of media including the online resources, radio and television. You will be given the opportunity to:

  • improve your knowledge of grammar.
  • learn new vocabulary through speaking, listening and reading.
  • be exposed to and take part in conversation to improve your fluency.
  • focus on your writing skills, looking at different types of written text and register.
  • practise your pronunciation including individual sounds, stress and intonation.
  • consolidate what you have learned through regular review activities.

Approximately 1 hour of homework will be given to you every day. If you are a long term student, you will be given a test on a regular basis so that you can track your progress.
