The General English course is designed to provide students who have a language ability of elementary to advanced with the opportunity to further improve their English language skills. Students may enrol in the course to develop their English for general purposes or to refresh their skills before undertaking further study.
Each component of the course aims to improve students' general English level. Once the course has finished, students should be ready to enter the next class. The general English classes also form a basis for students to move on to more specialised areas such as the IELTS Test Preparation course.
From 2 to 50 weeks
Examinations are conducted monthly and include reading, writing, speaking and listening tests. The assessment is based on the modules studied within the four-week periods. The test is hand-written, except for speaking, which includes presentations, dialogues and peer evaluations. Teachers conduct face-to-face interviews after each test to provide feedback on progress.
