The purpose of the General English course is to provide overseas 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.

  • Students will study speaking, listening, reading, writing, grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation and the course will prepare them to use English outside the classroom or to move on to further English study.
