 English Conversation Courses 

The English conversation program consists of nine levels from CEFR A2 (developing learners) to CEFR B2 (accomplished learners). During these courses, learners participate in listening and speaking tasks that are intended to improve their communication skills. The courses focus on improving the learners’ listening and speaking skills. They listen to a variety of texts including conversations, speeches, announcements, debates and negotiations in various contexts, listening for details and main ideas. They also practice dialogue and role play, as well as give presentations related to a variety of topics. There is a focus on stress and intonation to enhance their pronunciation skills. The topics discussed in class are varied and range from the simple to the complex.

Real-time activities are provided throughout the term in each level of the conversation courses. The classroom environment provides real-time contexts for students to practice and interact in English throughout the 30 hours of instruction in each level. Learners obtain a certificate of achievement at the end of every three levels.

Admission Requirements
