1.000 English as a Foreign Language (General English)

The English as a Foreign Language (General English) course at AIS improves students’ English proficiency step by step.

Our topical, modern textbooks and an interactive classroom approach are used to support students’ learning throughout the courses.

Students are assigned to one of the following classes to ensure they are at the optimum level for progress:

Skills classes

Students are given the opportunity to use the skills they have learned in general classes. There is a focus on “real day-to-day” English with topic-based learning and weekly vocabulary and speaking assessments.

Extra classes

Extra classes are run in the English Language Centre after the regular timetable finishes each day. These classes offer students the opportunity to develop specific skills, including speaking, pronunciation and listening.
