English Language Programs (ELP)

The English Language Programs (ELP) are for learners from a non-English speaking background who wish to learn how to use English effectively in both general and academic contexts.

The programs are designed to:

  • provide opportunity for students to identify and develop skills and strategies for more effective language learning as well as learning “how to learn”
  • develop overall competence in English across the four main macro skills (speaking, listening, reading, and writing)
  • develop an awareness and understanding of the culture of English-speaking peoples

The comprehensive English Language Program package includes all teaching, learning and assessment materials:

  1. Complete Syllabus for each level
  2. Core text: Student Course Books
  3. Comprehensive Teacher Guide and audio CDs for coursework
  4. ELP Writing Program
  5. Assessment Package:
    • Entry test
    • Assessment Folders which include ongoing skills-based assessments with teacher instructions and assessment criteria
    • Final tests of four macro skills (with audio CDs)
