Couse Overview:

The purpose of this course is to establish a foundation in reading, writing, speaking, and listening in the English language. This outline is designed for individuals from different backgrounds looking to hone their skills in the English language as it is used in formal and informal settings. Participants will be exposed to the various elements that come together to form the English language ??? from Grammar, including but not limited to tenses, sentence structure, punctuation, and active/passive voice to verbal and written communication skills. Presentations, readings, and essay topics will be practised and applied in contexts familiar to the participants. They will build vocabulary that can be used at home, university, and workplace settings daily. Students will be encouraged to step out of their comfort zone through presentations, group activities, and class participation, which is essential for confidence building in a second language. By the end of this course, students will confidently be able to hold a conversation, read and write an essay, and present at an advanced level. These are the kinds of transferrable skills that will help in second language testing IELTS/TOEFL, professional and work settings, and also for personal development purposes. 

Learning Outcomes:

  • Students will learn the correct usage of grammar.
