Today’s 21st century work and learning environments demand an accurate, fluent, and flexible range of contextually appropriate communication skills. This course develops students’ capacity to communicate simply and predictably in English, to meet the requirements of English language development at the A2 level, in both face to face and digital environments, with support at a beginning level (CEFR A2 level, IELTS 4.5). It also aims to enable students to articulate to EAP 1.
In this course, activities in English have been organised from an integrated communicative language teaching approach for reading, writing, listening, and speaking processes, purposes, attitudes, and strategies. Students' command of the English language should develop to a degree that supports simple, basic communication about familiar and predictable topics.

Special focus is given to developing the precision and efficiency of a students' English language skills to an elementary level through emphasis on enabling skills such as grammar, oral fluency, pronunciation, spelling, vocabulary, coherence and cohesion, and test taking strategies.
