Course Outline

The main focus for students at this level is to acquire a foundation of basic vocabulary and sentence structures that they can use to communicate with in different situations. Learners entering the Certificate I course have had minimal exposure to English; therefore, a lot of the focus for this course is on vocabulary that they can use in daily contexts, both in spoken and written English.
