This course aims to improve your English language skills and your ability to speak fluently and accurately. You will improve your writing, reading and listening skills but the major focus will be on your speaking skills.
We will ask about your English language level before you join the course (see Entry Requirements) but we will also give you a short assessment at the start of the course to check your current level.
You will have a series of assessments throughout the course to measure your progress. You will receive a report which can be sent to you or collected. You will also receive a certificate of attendance on completion.
This course also aims to introduce you to life in the UK, our customs and traditions. You will have classes that focus on different aspects of British culture. For more details on the English Language Development course click on the COURSE DESCRIPTION.
