In addition to English language, on courses between September and April learners may be able to take advantage of other subjects taught at Henley College Coventry with our English Plus scheme. Learners can choose to substitute up to 4 hours of an EFL course for hours in another subject area such as Business, Media or Tourism. They will need at least a good intermediate level of English to take part in this programme. There is no extra charge for joining these classes but attendance will depend on availability and timetable and cannot be guaranteed.
To ensure you are on the right course you will be asked to take a test before we place you in a class at an appropriate level. The maximum number of students in your class will be 20, however, the average class size is 16.
Our English language programme is made up of the following elements:
In this class you will follow a general language improvement course based on a published course book. Your teacher for this lesson is also your personal course tutor and he/she will follow your progress very carefully. You will have regular tutorials when you will discuss your progress and any special needs.
In this class you will concentrate on different language activities to support the Core course. This will include vocabulary expansion, pronunciation, grammar, writing and communication skills.
You will spend two lessons per week improving your skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing. You will do this by examining a theme of general interest, such as Jobs and Employment, Newspapers and the Media and others. You will also learn practical skills, such as preparing a C.V., writing business letters, preparing for an interview and making presentations.
You will spend this session with your personal tutor who will discuss your progress, provide guidence and set targets.
Our Learning Hub is open for private study after class each day. You can borrow books and other resources as well use computers.
