Course Overview

If English is not your first language, these friendly and informal classes will help you to improve your English skills and gain a qualification.

You will work both as part of a group and as an individual.  Tutors will use a variety of teaching methods, including explanation of language, discussions, presentations, authentic reading texts and exam practice.

Please note: If you are offered a place on a course and are unable to attend on the day and time given, you will be put on our waiting list until a suitable course becomes available.

What You Will Study

Speaking and Listening, Reading and Writing classes are available  from Pre-Entry to Level 1.

The speaking and listening classes will help you to develop confidence with your verbal communication, and you will practise making requests, conversation and discussion. Giving a presentation will also be included at Level 1.

The reading and writing classes will help you to develop reading for meaning and accuracy, looking for implicit meaning in texts, writing a range of texts, spelling, grammar and punctuation.

How You Will Be Assessed

The Speaking and Listening qualification is assessed by your tutor and City and Guilds through Speaking and Listening set tasks.  Reading and Writing are assessed through timed tasks and/or through end tests, some marked by City and Guilds.

Entry Requirements

There are no formal entry requirements, but you will have an interview and an assessment before you enrol for a class.

Many students complete a Speaking and Listening qualification before progressing to Reading or Writing but you will be advised which qualification is best suited to your needs. Classes start at various points throughout the year.

Attendance Expectations

You will attend two classes per week in college, plus you will be expected to complete independent study every week.
