English Language (ESOL) - Full-Time

Course Content

This course is designed to help you improve your English language skills to prepare you for living, working and studying in the UK and to be able to use English for international communication.

At lower levels, students will be introduced to basic grammar and vocabulary and there will be an emphasis on equipping students with the practical language and skills that they need to participate in everyday situations outside the classroom.

At higher levels, students knowledge and use of language will be extended and refined and there will be a focus on exam skills and academic English. Higher level groups will also prepare for Cambridge exams.
