What do I need to do this course?

Folder with dividers, lined paper, pens and highlighter pens and a dictionary, e.g. an e-dictionary on your phone.

Requirements

  • You should already possess E1 Speaking and Listening ESOL, KET (Key English Test) or you will take an initial assessments with us, which will show your starting point is one level below the level of this class.

Teaching Methods

  • The methods will be learner-centred, often task-based and often working in groups. You will talk about a range of issues relevant to your needs, to help you live in the community. There will be elements of peer-learning and an expectation for high levels of independent learning using links on Moodle and other e-sources.


    How is your progress checked?

    There is on-going assessment and all assessments will be indicated on Moodle, to which you will have access before the course begins and for a month after your course finishes. Some assessments will happen in class time and these will be indicated on your topic list and on Moodle. We will use your initial Assessment before the class, and Diagnostic Assessment evidence collected in the first 2 weeks, to plan your learning journey and negotiate individual targets. We will record and monitor this in our own ILP (Individual Learning Plan).

    Extra study or practice required at home.

    There is an expectation that learners will engage in approximately 40 hours of independent study, i.e. 4 hours per week, to successfully complete the course. We expect that if you miss a class you will catch up by looking at what work was covered on Moodle. We expect you to look at Moodle many times during the week, as well as watching videos and engaging with other extension games and activities on Moodle in order to develop your reading skills.
