The General English course is our most popular course and students love it as it has a perfect balance of reading, writing, listening and speaking skills. Students learn English which is used in everyday life and build their confidence to use English in any situation such as travelling, shopping, looking for a job, making friends etc. Lessons are fun, enjoyable and students often go out on excursions or day trips which complement their learning.
In the General English course students:
- Improve their speaking and conversation skills
- Learn correct pronunciation and improve their fluency
- Learn new vocabulary about different topics
- Improve their grammar in the teacher’s exciting lessons
- Participate in role plays and activities in class
- Learn idioms and phrases used in daily language
- Increase their reading speed and writing skills
- Improve their listening skills and comprehension
All students are tested by the English Management team on their first day and each student is informed of their current English level. Each student’s strengths and weaknesses are discussed and then placed in the ideal class for student’s learning. The class teacher also receives a copy of the student’s English test and is advised of student’s strengths and weaknesses, background, goals and is well prepared for the student’s first lesson.
