Intensive English Programme


Learners will be able to acquire the core skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing in the course. These skills are taught in an enjoyable and activity-centred environment to make learning a pleasure. To further enhance their English language skills and 21st century skills, project-based learning is introduced in this course. Working on projects in teams, learners not only reinforce their communication skills, but also strengthen their problem-solving skills, time-management skills, and research-gathering techniques using technological tools. With these combined skills, learners become autonomous drivers of their future.

At the end of this course, learners would have undergone a thorough grounding in all aspects of grammar and comprehensive training in the core skills which provide them with a solid foundation to facilitate better learning in the future.

The programme consists of 5 levels of study: English Level 1, English Level 2A, English Level 2B, English Level 3A and English Level 3B. Students are required to sit for a placement test prior to the commencement of the course to determine their level of proficiency.
