Regardless of the level your English is at, or which skills you aim to focus on, here at Newbold you will be able to develop your language and increase your confidence through our options on the General English Language course.
The 2020-2021 academic year will see you studying English in-person with us for the spring semester. These sessions will include 15 hours face-to-face lesson delivery, and guided independent study, and you will develop English through our learner-centred approach to teaching that focuses on your individual needs.
2021 Spring Semester
How will the semester be structured?
Part 1: Classes (6 weeks) + British Culture Week (1 week)
Part 2: Classes (6 weeks) + Brisith Culture Week and Certificate Ceremony (1 week)
Reading and Writing
Speaking and Listening
You will be challenged to practise your English and develop your general communication skills through different creative group projects, ranging from visual arts and video, to drama and cooking. You will work together with students of different English ability levels and learn through teamwork, intercultural communication, critical and creative thinking.
Guided Independent Study
If you want to improve your language skills significantly, just working along in class is not enough. This means that you are expected to set aside some time for independent work outside the classroom – completing your homework assignments, revising what has been covered in class, and taking time to practise.
Other parts of the programme
What will we do during British Culture Week?
British Culture Week is scheduled after each study session and it gives you the chance to visit historic locations in England, attend special seminars and workshops, and take a closer look at the culture of the United Kingdom.
