ESL

A course is the study of a particular topic within a wider subject area and is the foundation of a qualification. A typical course includes lectures, assessments and tutorials.

Students who are learning English will often take an ESL (English as a Second Language) program. The course frequently focuses on the correct pronunciation, spelling, and grammar of the language so that students can read, write, and speak understandably.

Academic English

DLD College London
Campus Full time Part time August 2018 United Kingdom London

Academic English forms the educational foundation for any international student studying with us, whatever course they follow, as English is the language for both teaching and learning. [+]

Best Courses in ESL in United Kingdom 2017/2018. What is Academic English? Academic English forms the educational foundation for any international student studying with us, whatever course they follow, as English is the language for both teaching and learning. Every student’s language target is to achieve a minimum of 6.5 in the IELTS exam (International English Language Testing System). It is compulsory to study this course until this is achieved, although we recommend students study beyond this score. There are various courses to follow to do this, depending on the English level at the start (which we will assess upon arrival). The IELTS exam is as important as any A level subjects, Foundation course or BTEC qualification and must be taken alongside these, because the demonstration of academic English skills of a certain level (generally 6.5) is a pre-requisite for entry to all good universities. Further to this, universities such as Oxford, Cambridge, LSE, Imperial and UCL often ask for 7.0/7.5. This exam focusses not only on the four main language skills areas (reading, writing, speaking and listening) but also on the academic learning skills required through the sixth form, into university and beyond; for example, discursive essay writing, argument analysis and note-taking. What is Academic English @ DLD? We believe in an integrated skills and topic based approach to learning, as language is learnt best in context. Wherever possible, we will link the relevance of our lessons to the other subjects across the curriculum. We believe strongly in working... [-]
