General English

This bespoke course is designed to integrate students into their company and community. Concentrating on everyday English combined with sector specific grammar, vocabulary and lexis, this curriculum improves communication in the work place and industry.

Our 30 hour course is tailored to the student’s needs, and allows employees to interact naturally in a social and work environment.

In addition, General English can be rolled out as a continuous programme for new employees and those who want to progress in any Business English or higher education English qualification. It can also be extended to include preparation and enrolment for Functional Skills exams from Entry Level 1 to Level 2.

Our programme enables students to:

    • Use formal and informal language appropriately at work and social events.
    • Communicate clearly with colleagues and friends.
    • Become familiar with local community and culture.

We understand the aspects of English that are challenging, therefore we concentrate on:

    • Pronunciation – practise clear pronunciation and review different UK accents.
    • Conversation – familiarisation with small talk and common conversational topics.
    • Listening and asking – understanding instructions, directions and conversations and asking appropriate questions.
    • Reading and writing – understanding tasks and directives, conveying written information correctly.
