Course objectives

The aim of this course of afternoon study is to further develop your English language skills - in your 30 lessons each week you will get the maximum benefit out of your time here and in your lessons you will develop your reading, writing, listening and speaking skills. You will spend time on expanding your grammar knowledge and use, building vocabulary and of course on improving your communication skills.

From the moment you arrive, you will:

  1. Learn English in a multicultural classroom using the latest resources and technologies.
  2. Focus on improving your accuracy in grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation.
  3. Have fun and be challenged in your lessons
  4. Learn everyday communication skills to assist you during your English language experience.

Course content

When you arrive you will be given your own coursebook, which you will use throughout your 30 lessons each week. Here at GCI we use only the most modern and up to date materials and our coursebook choice reflects this. This coursebook will form the basis of some of your home study tasks too - allowing you to repeat and revise new items in your own time. Your course is structured around an excellent 12 week syllabus, but of course you can start on any Monday. The syllabus is linked to the Common European Framework 'Can Do Statements'. Our talented teachers can also make some changes to the afternoon course according to your specific needs and requirements.

In GCI, there is a test every Friday afternoon to monitor your progress and to see if there is a need to reappraise your level. You will receive regular feedback from your teacher to discuss and analyse your progress. Home study is part of your learning journey and this is assigned by your teachers every day.

You will have two different teachers who will help you to develop your English skills: speaking, reading, writing and listening, in addition to your language skills: grammar, vocabulary and communication. You will have lots of opportunities for practice in your groups and will meet new people from all over the world!
