We offer a 25 week English language course which will take you through levels 1, 2 & 3 of the Direct English language system. Levels 1-3 are the transactional and functional phases. You will learn basic language and structure to be able to do things you need to do on a daily basis as soon as possible. This course includes a combination of English language tutorials, conversation classes, and social/cultural activities. On passing each level you will receive a Direct English Certificate of Achievement. The course is designed for adults who want to use English accurately and fluently. Grammar and vocabulary are taught and explained thoroughly, and all four skills of speaking, listening, reading and writing are developed systematically. The course combines traditional methods of language teaching with a communicative approach.

Learning Outcome

At the end of the academic year, you will sit an external exam suitable to your level. You will receive another certificate on successful completion of this exam. The exam you sit will be discussed with you at the start of your course as the period of 25 weeks includes some specific exam preparation classes.
