General English Course


 

Intaleq's General English Course courses (from Starter to Advanced levels) cover four skills: speaking, writing, listening and reading, as well as a focus on vocabulary development, pronunciation and grammar. The Full-time courses are 2 hours per day, Saturday-Thursday, reflecting the centre’s educational philosophy in providing students with the environment and opportunity to apply what they are learning so that they can express themselves with confidence.

In class, students are inspired and mentored by their teacher in developing their speaking, reading, writing and listening skills as well as improving their vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation. These two hour classes are conducted in the mornings and the evenings. The morning classes are from 9:00am-01:00pm and the evening classes are from 5pm-9pm.

Course Content

Our Starter level is for students who need to develop English language skills for routine social demands facing adult learners in day-to-day situations. The focus is on the listening and speaking tasks necessary to satisfy these basic routines. This course also introduces reading and writing skills for those with little or no literacy in English. By the end of this level students can expect to be able to give and obtain factual information about personal information and non-personal information.

In addition, they should also be able to establish and maintain social and professional contacts and carry out certain transactions such as making arrangements (planning, tickets, reservations, etc.) for travel, accommodation, appointments, leisure activities, making purchases and ordering food and drink.

Our Elementary Level is for students who have already learnt some English and who wish to build on their English language skills for social and everyday purposes. It is expected that the writing and speaking skills of students will be limited at this stage.

The language will be mostly or completely learnt by repetition and drilling. Reading and listening skills will be more developed than speaking and writing skills. By the end of the level it is expected that students will be able to understand straightforward information in spoken and written English and to express himself/herself in speech and in writing for simple practical purposes in everyday situations such as asking for directions, ordering food at a restaurant, making appointments and reservations; expressing degrees of certainty and frequency and talking about the past. It is a course which prepares students for the next stage in English.

Our Pre-Intermediate Level is for students who have a command of English which allows them to use the language to deal with familiar social and everyday situations. By the end of this level our students should be able to understand and use familiar everyday expressions and very basic phrases aimed at meeting their needs.

They should also be able to introduce him/herself and others and can ask and answer questions about personal details such as personal preferences, where he/she lives, people he/she knows and things he/she has. Students should also be able to interact in a simple way provided the other person talks slowly and clearly and is prepared to help.

Students should also be able to deal with most situations likely to arise while living in an area where the English language is spoken. In addition, students should also be able to produce grammatically accurate and complex sentences in connected texts and essays on topics that are familiar or of personal interest.

Our Advanced Level is for students who use or will use English on a regular basis and who wish to improve their fluency and accuracy as well as extending their vocabulary to include more specialised English related to their own areas of interest.

By the end of this level students should be able to understand the main ideas of complex texts on both concrete and abstract topics, including technical discussions in his/her field of interest.
