English Language Proficiency Programme


INTRODUCTION
The English Language Proficiency Programme (ELP) has been created in response to the English language needs of adults in both academic and non-academic sectors. Stretching along a continuum from beginner to advanced, it is specially designed to accommodate students with various levels of English language proficiency, and guide them towards the level that they are aspiring to. It takes into cognizance the fact that the participants are mature learners who already possess the knowledge, skills and expertise in their own fields, and that their need for proficiency in the English language is to enhance their communicative skills. An interactive, integrated, learner and learning centred approach will be adopted in order to make the course more interesting and effective. The course will also give due consideration to supporting and supplementary skills such as critical thinking, confidence building and collaborative learning, and adopt a spiral mode of teaching where knowledge and skills are reinforced progressively to enable a deeper and more-nuanced understanding of both.

COURSE OBJECTIVES
The main objective is to enhance proficiency in the English language so that the course participants can communicate more effectively and efficiently in this language for the fulfillment of their various needs, specifically :

  • For social interaction with people who use the English language
  • To pursue academic activities conducted in the English language
  • To be better prepared for taking English language examinations that form part of international study pre-requisites (such as IELTS and TOEFL)
  • A secondary objective is to equip course participants with sufficient motivation and tools to continue their learning of the language independently and beyond the exit point of the programme.
     

COURSE COMPONENTS
These include all four language skills :  Speaking, Writing, Reading and Listening.
