特徵

普通 ESL課程目的在為學生的英語學習打下良好的基礎,重點提高聽、說、讀、寫四項宏觀技能以及語法和發音。

通過螺旋結構和交際法的結合,在培養學生使用「日常英語」進行交流的同時,使學生不斷接觸和重複所學的知識點、詞彙以及表達方式,從而達到更好的學習效果。這些特點使得本課程非常適合尋求提高英語準確性和流利性的學生,適合從初學者到高級別的不同水平的學生。

Features

Regular Speaking ESL focuses on the improvement of a student’s skills in listening, speaking, reading, and writing, as well as in grammar and pronunciation. It has two (2) proficiency levels: Foundational ESL and Essential ESL, which define the abilities of students to comprehend, express and communicate using the language. Each sublevel of Foundational and Essential ESL are designed for eight (8) weeks but may be shortened through LEVEL UP examinations done every four (4) weeks.

Grading System

Bridge Program

The Bridge Program is designed for a four-week study of students who achieved a Final Grade of 76 and below after eight (8) weeks. Students who failed to reach 80% in the Revalidation Tests also go through the Bridge Program, since their Placement results serve as their Final Grade for their proficiency level. The Bridge Program in the Listening and Reading classes are composed of additional units, while Speaking, Writing, Grammar and Pronunciation Bridge Programs serve as a refresher course.

Revalidation Test

Students who get a Final Grade of 77-79 are required to take a Revalidation Test done every first Monday of a term. This is to determine whether students proceed to the next proficiency level or the Bridge Program. Thus, the results of the Revalidation Test are considered to be the students’ Final Grade for their proficiency level. Those who wish to reassess their proficiency level can also take this test. However, the result of the test bears no effect to the Final Grade of students.

Level Test

Level tests are given to students on the first Monday of the term. Students are evaluated separately in their Listening, Reading/Speaking, and Writing skills. The results of these tests determine the starting level of the students.
