English: your passport to the world
Speaking English is your passport to the world, but there is more to a language that just words! At St George’s our approach to success is a ‘whole person’ approach so when you come to St George’s to study English your learning is not limited to the classroom! You will practice your new skills living on campus with your fellow students and further afield whilst out in the local town or on a trip.
Students sit a short placement test on arrival to make sure they are on the right course to enable them to achieve their maximum potential and our courses can be taken individually or combined with other studies.
ENGLISH LANGUAGE EXPERIENCE: For a short course ranging from 2 weeks upwards, this is a bespoke programme tailored to your individual requirements. This could be English for business, conversational English or an introduction for complete beginners. Whatever you are looking for this course, combined with cultural excursions will improve your knowledge of all things English
GENERAL ENGLISH: For students not ready to begin IELTS, the General English course is designed to give students a solid foundation in verbal, listening and written skills. Students can advance to the IELTS course when they are ready or take the course as a stand-alone programme
IELTS: The IELTS scoring system is recognized around the world as the standard for English language qualification needed for university. Most universities will accept IELTS scores between 5.5-7 as suitable for undergraduate study in English.
Minimum entry level: There is no minimum entry level as students will be placed on a suitable course for their level as assessed on arrival.
