This is an online training course which will help you improve key English language areas: Reading, Listening, Writing and Speaking.
At the very beginning of the course, you’ll sit a Proficiency Assessment test to ascertain your current skill level. From here, you’ll get straight into the course, choosing units or subject areas you find interesting and relevant to you. This could be anything from travel, sports and technology, through to world news. The topics are regularly updated, so the course content is topical and relevant. To ensure you’re studying at the appropriate level, you’ll resit the Proficiency Assessment every 3 months to track and monitor your progress. The course level will then advance as appropriate.
You can choose any 3 units to study at a time. Each unit will comprise different activities, exercises and games, all designed to provide an interactive and enjoyable study experience. As you’re learning, you’ll be building up your Word Bank, which will then provide one of the resources you’ll be required to study each week. You’ll also build a Grammar Guide, again another resource you will be asked to review and study each week.
One valuable resource you will have access to is the tutoring sessions, which you can take part in with a wider group. These sessions will be vital to help you improve your English conversational skills.
The combination of the study units, practice lessons, tutorials and ongoing assessments will all assist you in building confidence in your English language skills.
At the end of this course, you will receive a Pitman Training Certificate.
Please note this is not an IELTS qualification.
