This programme is aimed at individuals who require the basics in English so that they become self-sufficient to handle every day communication and at the same time enabling them to participate in everyday conversation.

It is structured in sections that are relevant and current allowing the individual to reflect on learning and acquiring new knowledge and a better command of the English language.

This is a practical interactive curriculum adapted to a South African context that involves the student being active in all sessions. Learners will be assessed according to practical exercises completed during sessions.

Duration

Saturday mornings (9 weeks) or Weekday afternoons (4 weeks). Specialised training times can be arranged for Groups of 10 or more.
