General English classes cover reading, writing, speaking (including pronunciation) and listening. They are based on a course book, but teachers will often add materials from other sources depending on their student’s needs and interests. For example, they may bring in newspaper articles, use pronunciation websites or other online resources, or use news items from British television.
In addition to the content specific to every level, the course also includes:
- study skills that will help you continue to learn outside the classroom
- pronunciation skills, which will help you understand the sounds you are reading and allow you to say new words in the correct way
- lessons about British culture
- exam skills
- work-related topics (for example, understanding job adverts) and skills (CV writing, presentation skills, interpersonal skills)
- oral presentation skills which will help in future jobs and if you go on to study at university
In your lessons you will be asked to be active and participate in a variety of activities (e.g. grammar exercises, pair and group work, communication, self and peer correction, oral presentations and exam preparation). It is important that you ask questions when you do not understand an idea that is brought up in class. You will also be able to give feedback on your classes and tell us if you want additional topics or activities.
Any Monday during term time except for UK Bank Holidays or directly before a college holiday.
