These courses begin with assessing your level of English at point of entry and defining your strengths and weaknesses, you are then placed in a class at your level. The course covers all aspects of the language including grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, and reading writing & listening skills. There is a strong focus on fluency and effective communication, and a major part of this course is activating the passive knowledge that many students already have. This means that a short course of even one week is beneficial. As much as possible your individual needs and preferences are addressed and your teacher may advise extra self-study in the library/study centre.
One lesson is the equivalent of 50 minutes
