The English Language Programme is
aligned with the Common European Framework of Reference. Regular courses range from A1 through
B2. Specialized courses are offered from
A1 through C1/C2.
Regular and special courses provide
guided practice in the use of real
language for both
professional and non-professional purposes. The courses enhance, expand and
reinforce the language skills learned in all previous English learning and aim
to develop a threshold working knowledge of English.
In the classroom, students communicate in
English to expand their vocabulary and to develop grammatical accuracy. At the beginning levels (A1/A2), students
focus on listening and speaking as well as fluency. Grammar and vocabulary are introduced through
direct instruction and communicative exercises. The intermediate to advanced
level courses integrate all skills in real communication. A task-based evaluation process provides
students the opportunity to build on their skills in an active classroom. At B1 and B2 levels, students engage in
discussions and debates, interviews and exercises. Students write letters, summaries, emails and
other correspondence. This action-oriented approach ensures students can
translate their developing English skills into their work settings.
