SCHOOL OF FOREIGN LANGUAGES

English being a global language, the role of prep school is invaluable. Our aim is to develop students’ language skills as well as their personal, intellectual and social growth through computer mediated activities together with face-to-face instruction. Lessons are audio-visual, vibrant and enjoyable and we endeavour to cater for every individual by supporting them with the English they will need for their undergraduate studies.

General information

Depending on the score the student receives on the English placement test, they are placed in one of three levels: elementary, intermediate or advanced. Each module takes a total of eight weeks to complete and after each successfully completed module, students move on to the next module until their English levels reach advanced level where they are ready to become students of their desired faculty.

If students receive a score less than 70 from the English placement test, they are required to study at English preparatory school. The aim of the courses is to prepare students for their faculties with the four language skills: speaking, listening, reading and writing, together with grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation.
For each level, students are to take part in 20 hours of lessons a week where they are to attend classes every day.
Classes are compulsory for all students.
