The General English modules use a range of industry standard textbooks as well as supplementary materials sourced from websites such as BBC English and MacMillan English. Students will achieve reading, writing, speaking and listening skills in keeping with internationally recognised levels.
There are 6 modules from beginner to advanced level. Each module is designed to cover 12 weeks of study. Each student's entry point will be determined following an assessment of their current English reading, writing, speaking and listening skills when they arrive at Tasman. After assessment and placement at the appropriate entry point, students are aiming to move on to the next level after studying 12 weeks at the same level.
Level 3 - Pre-Intermediate
Level 5 - Upper-Intermediate
Students will achieve the required reading, writing, speaking and listening skills to enable them to gain a Certificate in General English at a level equivalent to the programme they have successfully completed.
Students should be 14 years of age on entry and have successfully completed Year 9 at secondary school or the local equivalent. Students will be required to provide evidence of this. All students will be required to take Tasman's placement test on entry to ensure they are placed in an appropriate class level where they have a good chance of success.
