    Your course Courses available under the General English Programme are General English (21hrs) and General English with IELTS Preparation (21hrs).

    Timetables Morning classes focus mainly on English language structures and accuracy, including grammar, pronunciation and vocabulary, with classes also focusing on putting your English skills to use, for example by giving presentations, writing blogs or investigating English-speaking cultures. Afternoon lessons are directed toward the separate language skills of Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening.

    09:00 -11:00 CORE LANGUAGE lessons These lessons are coursebook-led classes that communicatively teach grammar points and practise them for accuracy. Your teacher for this class will also be your personal tutor and will be your first point of contact if you want to discuss your learning. You will be set homework every day in this lesson.

    11:30-12:30 TOPIC-BASED LANGUAGE lessons These lessons will develop your confidence by using your expanding English knowledge to produce work in all the skills and will include the use of technology and university provided facilities. The classes will cover many different topics: sometimes you may have a DVD, or work with newspapers. You might also work on a project, which means finding information yourself. You will also usually be asked to give a presentation, which is a short talk to the class on a topic. This class is usually with your second teacher. You may also have homework from this class.

    13:30-15:00 (14:00-15:30 Summertime) LANGUAGE SKILLS lessons These lessons focus on the individual language skills: reading, writing, listening and speaking. You will be mixing with students from other classes of a similar level, and may have a choice of topics if you are on the General English course. Topics taught in these classes are chosen by the teacher and students together, so you can ask your teacher what you would like to learn about. Examples in the past
