Overview

Confidence with using the English language is built upon students being provided with the opportunity to be challenged with tasks that scaffold their learning allowing them to build confidence through being provided with support whilst encountering increasingly challenging activities.
This course aims to develop students' language skills and strategies in reading, writing, listening and speaking to a level where they can apply their language skills to longer, more complex material and tasks that help build confidence and prepare students to proceed to Pre-Intermediate Level.

In this course, reading, writing, listening and speaking have been organised around skills that students need to develop at this level. Students develop language skills and expressions related to areas of immediate relevance, such as information about family, career, shopping, leisure activities, health and basic information about country of origin. Communication tasks centre on simple and routine tasks that require a simple and direct exchange of information with a focus on the familiar and routine. Directed self-study at the appropriate level aims at continuing to develop students' ability to work independently of the teacher on individual problems and needs.
