Course Description

This certificate program is designed for high school students aiming at helping them become better language users and demonstrate success. It is a 2-week program on general English focusing on practicing productive skills. The interests and needs of the learners will be analyzed and the classes will be planned accordingly to help them improve their language skills. The teaching practices will focus more on language learning for more immediate or practical goals. In other words, students will be given many opportunities to use/produce language rather than simply reading texts and listening to texts. The program will include interesting content that is relevant to learner’s age and skills and learning goals will be both manageable and challenging. The main aim is to enjoy the learning process.
