General English courses at UKCB follow the syllabus laid out by the popular Oxford Press series English File.

Each unit works on all Four-skills with a clear focus on language production and pronunciation. Reading and listening texts from the book are up to date and additional texts such as newspaper articles, video clips are supplemented by the lecturer.

The grammar is level appropriate and is staged so each class helps to support the next. The grammar is then supported using Grammar Bank exercises plus additional worksheets and activities.

Practical English sessions using documentary videos and ‘real-world’ interviews prepare our students for real-life encounters, from ordering food in a restaurant to taking a job interview.

Progress tests will be taken on a regular basis to assess student development and to provide feedback. Feedback is given throughout the course in the form of one to one discussions, error correction when speaking and written corrections on essays.

Level appropriate vocabulary is presented and practiced in meaningful contexts and reinforced using activities games and quizzes. Additional phrases, idioms, and expressions are added to develop the students understanding and aid their development.
