The English for Living General EFL programs help EFL clients develop English language skills for real situations. English Grammar is taught in a communicative manner, with an emphasis on using the learned structures orally. Communicative methodology is also used to develop English Vocabulary, Idioms and Pronunciation.
Instructors can use weekly themes in their classes. Pair and group activities related to the theme improve listening, speaking, reading and writing skills. Everyday English is also covered in the afternoon classes.
There are six levels, which are further divided into sub-levels. All students are placed in separate levels according to their grammar and conversation skills. Students usually progress to higher levels every 6 weeks. All courses are therefore planned in six-week sessions or whatever pace is suitable for the client. Clients may register for as many programs as they need.
If all six levels are completed, the EFL client may receive a EFL Diploma in General English. Clients who start at a higher level than beginner can take an assessment exam to receive credits in lieu of taking the lower level programs and use the credits towards their diploma.
