The Weekly General English module encompasses the study of listening, speaking, and reading skills, as well as grammar and vocabulary. It aims to place participants at an adequate proficiency threshold to begin receiving instruction in more complex language skills (i.e. Social, Business and Academic English skills).

The Communication Skills module is designed to complement the Foundation English module, and to further develop participants’ speaking skills, along with their pronunciation and discourse competencies. Its main objective is to develop participants’ confidence in using the target language for daily communication and academic work.

Skills Focus

  • Speaking
    • A large part of the classes will focus on communicative teaching. Participants will be expected to participate in conversations with a partner or as part of a group. Participants will learn a variety of functional language to assist them with everyday conversation. Speaking will also focus on pronunciation, fluency and accuracy.
  • Listening
    • Listening skills will be developed through the use of authentic material from CDs and the internet. Participants will be able to practise listening to different accents, develop and adopt different techniques to aid comprehension.
  • Reading
    • Reading skills development will focus on improving reading speed, understanding larger texts on a variety of subjects, identifying different styles of text.
  • Vocabulary
    • A variety of functional language will be learnt to help and support participants with everyday conversations and situations.
  • Pronunciation
    • Participants will develop their pronunciation of individual sounds, intonation, rhythm and stress.
