Course Description

This course is for basic beginners who have not studied English in a 100% English-taught classroom. We know you have studied English and know vocabulary and some grammar points, but you may not have much of an idea of how to use the language when meeting English speakers and travelling abroad etc. Don't worry! We are here to help you develop all four language skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing) through practical and fun exercises and activities. By the end of the course, you will have a better understanding of what to say and how to say it in simple situations and confidently move on to the next step.

Who should take this course

English language learners whose TOEIC score is around 500 or those who are new to a 100% English-taught learning environment.
