Event: Basic Professional English

Basic Professional English

The goal of the course is to provide content-based instruction to help higher education professionals develop skills in English to reach or approach the A2+ level on the CEFR. This is a 12-week course organized around modules. Each module uses an integrated skills approach with opportunities to develop reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills. 

Each week, you will spend about 12 hours on this course:

8 hours = independent study (online content),

2 hours = Zoom sessions (with the instructor and other participants), 

two Zoom meetings as a class. Attend as many class meetings as possible

2 hours = study groups (at your institution with the other participants).

Each week you will meet with one or more of your colleagues to practice English. Each module will have activities for you to do together. This is an important opportunity to improve your English and practice what you are learning online. Your group may choose to meet in person or online.
