General English - Beginners Level

The Beginners General English course is ideal for students with no or limited knowledge of English. While the course addresses all four skill areas (listening, speaking, reading and writing), the main focus is on listening and speaking and on specific areas such as improving English grammar knowledge.

The teacher will motivate the students to speak and practise English through practical tasks and activities. In turn these Interactive lessons will help the student understand and use the new grammar, vocabulary and skills.

The course promotes a step by step approach and gives students the confidence they need to use the language effectively. Also, each lesson has clear leaning outcomes taken from the Common European Framework. These outcomes are expressed as "Can do" statements, showing the students the real-world relevance of each lesson.

The course is based on conversations and tasks used in everyday situations such as:

  • Family
  • Personal Information
  • Food
  • Free time
  • Lifestyles
  • Daily Routines
  • Work
  • Travel
  • Life stories
  • Past activities.... Etc

The Beginners General English Course is a twelve week intensive course with all lessons being held in the Language Lab. At an established point in the course the student will receive advice on their progress, areas for improvement and advice for future studies.

At the end of the course, the teacher's recommendation will determine whether the student moves to Pre-Intermediate General English.

The student will receive a certificate at the end of the course if they have attended at least 80% of the classes and satisfactorily completed all relevant parts to the course.
