These courses provide instruction in general English at levels appropriate to learners’ language proficiency. The programme focuses on learners’ knowledge of grammar and vocabulary, and improves their listening, speaking, reading and writing skills.
General English is offered to learners from the early age of 6 years, and the curriculum is based on high quality textbooks from well-known, international ELT publishers. We supplement whenever necessary with extra home-produced teaching materials to meet individual learning needs and bridge any language learning gaps in the materials published for the broader/international market.
New students and students returning for study after a six-month-interruption period take a placement test first to determine their level in English before registering them for the General English Programme courses. Students are assigned to class levels that correspond to their results in the placement test, regardless of their actual grade level at their regular school.
