This course is a 6 week course for students who have an intermediate level of English (at least IELTS 5.0) and who need to improve their academic reading and writing skills before embarking on further studies.
Using a combination of intensive language study, frequent controlled practice and close monitoring by an English tutor, students will achieve a sound basis of reading and writing skills which will enable them to approach their future study programme with confidence. A feature of the course is regular one-to-one tutorials with the teacher in order to address a student’s individual problems and a focus on drafting, proofreading and redrafting writing to achieve grammatical accuracy. This course is suitable for pre-undergraduate and undergraduate level. There are classes for different levels of ability.
The course will run through blocks 2 and 3 from 1st August - 9th September 2016. There is also a shortened version of this course available in block 3 as a 3 week course
