WHAT IS TAUGHT IN OUR GENERAL ENGLISH COURSES?

Vocabulary is introduced and practised at every stage of the lesson and particular attention is paid to high-frequency, internationally useful words and phrases. Special emphasis is given to communicating effectively and accurately and error correction plays an important role in classes. New language is practised through meaningful speaking tasks and discussions, which include regular integrated work on the pronunciation. By the end of the course, students will be better able to use English more accurately and effectively and with more confidence. Our general English courses are specially designed to give students an outstanding platform to develop their English skills in a supportive learning environment.
