Summary

It’s for anyone who would like to improve their English in a general way! It covers English that is useful in everyday life. If you want to improve your English for university, higher education, TAFE or VET study and your English level is Intermediate and higher, then please see our EAP course. The course covers all areas of English: speaking, listening, writing and reading. To help you with these skills, there will also be plenty of vocabulary, pronunciation and grammar. We focus on the English that is most important to most people – that is, real life English. At Newton, we believe that people learn best when they are enjoying themselves, are interested in what they are learning and when the study is similar to real life. Levels: Elementary, Pre-Intermediate, Intermediate, Upper intermediate. We also believe that people learn by doing – that is, to learn to speak English, people have to do a lot of speaking practice, and to listen more easily, people have to do lots of listening practice. Therefore, in your lessons you will do a lot of practice in real-life situations. There will be a lot of discussions, role-plays, reading of interesting magazine articles and websites, writing to communicate with people around the world, and listening to people with a range of accents. Each week has a different topic. Topics are chosen to be useful to you in real life and to be interesting. From time to time you will also go outside class to practice English in the real world. There will be formative tests, and teachers will also give you marks for homework and class activities such as speaking. Assessment will help you to see your progress, so that teachers can find which areas to give extra attention to. All assessment is very supportive – completely different from exams at school. When you finish your course, we will give you a certificate and a report. This shows your grades and the levels you studied at. Entry Requirements: You must be over 18 and must be able to speak and write a few basic words in English.
