The General English Program (Beginner to Advanced) has been designed for international students from non-English speaking backgrounds seeking to improve their English language skills for social, work and study purposes.

Our General English Program focuses on developing our students’ skills through a blend of methodologies combining the best of traditional approaches – a solid grammar and vocabulary basis – and modern communicative approaches, such as role-plays, personalization and gamification.

The course consists of six proficiency levels, in which students are assigned after taking a placement test. Depending on their fortnightly test results and class performance, students may be recommended to take a level exit test, which enables them to move up to the next level.
