Course Description

This course is designed to help non-native speakers of English (with little or no exposure to the language) gain the skills they need for day-to-day life, education, or employment. Built on a mix of traditional and technology-based teaching, the course provides an opportunity to practice communication in real-life situations. Students gain the necessary skills to become more independent, socialise with others, access services, and feel connected to society.

Aims and Objectives

This course aims at enabling learners to use English to exchange information and communicate ideas at a basic level. To this end, it equips students with listening, speaking, reading and writing skills, as well as some knowledge of British culture. By the end of the ten weeks, learners have the necessary tools to survive in a range of everyday situations, by means of simple and effective language.

Progression – what next? 

By the end of this course, learners will be equipped to continue studying ESOL at Entry Level 2.

How progress and success will be recorded

The course is based on closely guiding and supporting students, both in class and at home, to help them make the most of their learning. There are no tests or exams: oral feedback is provided in lessons, and students wishing to submit their homework will be offered written feedback as well.

Materials / Equipment required for First Class

Learners are advised to bring a notebook and pens/pencils.
