Course description

ESOL E3 Pre Intermediate

At this level, you feel quite confident about your English. You can go to shops, travel, have conversations about everyday topics, read simple newspaper articles and write letters and emails. But you still cannot speak or read about anything complicated and you make quite a lot of mistakes. On this course, you will practise your vocabulary and grammar so you can understand people better, talk about most everyday topics, write an interesting letter or email and make fewer mistakes.

Suitability - Who should attend?

This English course is at pre-intermediate and lower intermediate level. It is the right course for you if:

You can communicate with people in different situations and feel quite confident in your daily life - for example, in shops, at the bank, at the market, with your children's teacher. But you cannot say or understand anything complicated. You cannot understand the television or the radio very well especially when English people are talking to each other.

You can read simple letters, emails, and forms quite easily. You have begun to read newspaper articles and stories. But you need to use a dictionary a lot and the stories take you a long time to read.

You can write short letters and emails. You can write descriptions of people and places. You can write about how you feel. But you make a lot of mistakes. You are not sure about the correct grammar, and your language is quite simple.

Training Course Content
