The purpose of the General English course is to provide students with a strong, well balanced knowledge and application of the English language. It is taught in a fun and practical manner which will engage the students. The course provides opportunity for students to learn, make errors, receive feedback and engage in authentic, functional and practical conversational settings.

The course will help to prepare them to use daily English outside the classroom or to move on to further English study. 

 

The General English course provides students with authentic experiences and provides ample opportunity to practise and master the language. As students improve their English language skills, they are able to move up to the next stage. The course is designed with 50 standalone yet scaffolding units which are taught over 50 weeks and allows students join at any week. The formative and summative assessments are conducted during each unit and students who join at any time are not disadvantaged for missing the previous unit.

 

The General English course can be used as a ‘stepping stone’ or ‘English preparation program’ for students wanting to enter the English for Academic Purposes (EAP) course who do not have an Intermediate level of English. Such students are able to enter the General English course and study in Elementary/Pre-Intermediate levels and improve their English. Once such students attain an Intermediate level, they will have met the minimum entry requirements to commence EAP.

There is no minimum education level to enter this course.
