English World courses are designed to have an impact on the present and future life of the learner in an international environment. Our unique programme has five complementary elements that give learners the tools they need to operate confidently and successfully when using English as an international language.
The Skills Training session provides the practice that students need according to their study goals, such as pronunciation, business English or study skills.
The Accuracy in Grammar session perfects core grammar skills and works on the eradication of common errors.
The Knowledge for a Global Community class is at the centre of the course. Through individual and team- based research, students work on a broad range of historical, economic, sociological, artistic and cultural topics designed to equip them with the knowledge to function more effectively in the global community. Students present their findings in a range of debates, presentations, and pair and group work activities.
In the Language Focus session you develop your reading, listening, writing and study skills in English. The skills enhanced during the Language Focus are used in authentic tasks in the Spoken Performance Workshop.
In the Spoken Performance Workshop, the learner develops confidence and skills in a range of speaking situations through mini role-plays, presentations and public speaking activities.
Every full time student receives a 15 minute coaching session each week, in which goals are set or reappraised, and progress and course work reviewed. On longer courses we stretch learners by setting additional tasks on which the personal tutor provides feedback.
