The aim of this course is to develop students’ understanding and use of English Language in all 4 core skills (reading, writing, listening and speaking) to the equivalent of IELTS 6.0 so that you are able to start your degree programme (Bachelor's or Master's). The course develops language skills but also acquaints you with the appropriate study skills and academic expectation of a UK University.
Assessments of speaking skills progress from group presentations on personal / cultural topics to research based academic seminars.
Assessment of writing skills progress from writing short texts on personal / cultural topics with a reasonable degree of accuracy and organisation to research-based open-book assessments where students research and are expected to demonstrate use of academic conventions such as referencing and avoiding plagiarism, while also demonstrating a good command of grammar and vocabulary skills.
Assessment of listening skills progress from listening to short texts on personal/ cultural topics to understanding organisation, gist and details in academic lectures.
Assessment of reading skills progress from understanding simple texts on personal/ cultural topics to demonstrating awareness of organisation of texts and distinguishing main points from sub-points.
As well as learning English language skills you will start to develop academic and learning skills that will equip you for university study.
