The focus of this programme is to introduce you to English for academic purposes and support you in reaching the level you need to study in English in a university. The course develops and consolidates your existing levels of vocabulary as well as your grammar and structure knowledge. Students will also be trained to use academic lexis whilst being introduced to key study skills such as critical thinking, longer writing exercises and delivering presentations.
Our qualified and friendly teachers will give you the individual attention you need with regular one-to-one tutorials. You will have the chance to practice your spoken English in discussions, debates, role-play, pair work and seminars. You’ll also have the opportunity to improve your levels of academic English by listening to lectures, note taking and reading longer and more complex texts as well as writing more university style essays.
All students must take an entrance test for this course to ensure they are the right level. You will also be able to track your progress with weekly assessments. If you want to progress more quickly, you can add four or six hours a week of extra elective classes.
