English is the most useful language globally and is widely spoken here in the UAE. The UKCBC general English course is a great way to improve the English language skills for students preparing for higher education or working professionals interested in perfecting conversation skills. This course is designed to suit students with different levels of language proficiency, helping students learn conversational skills for real life situations.
UKCBC trainers are experienced native-speaking professionals who adopt different teaching techniques to make English easier to learn for non-native speakers. The sessions are interactive and follow objectives that contribute to the overall student progress. A variety of structured learning exercises are given, and student progress is monitored with effective guidance and constructive feedback to help students achieve fluency and confidence.

General English courses at UKCBC follow the syllabus laid out by the popular Oxford Press series English File.
Each unit works on all Four-skills with a clear focus on language production and pronunciation. Reading and listening texts from the book are up to date and additional texts such as newspaper articles, video clips and movie scripts are provided by the lecturer.
The grammar is level appropriate and is staged so each class supports the next. The grammar is then reviewed and evaluated using Grammar Bank exercises plus additional worksheets and activities.
Practical English sessions using documentary videos and ‘real-world’ interviews prepare our students for real life encounters, from ordering food in a restaurant to taking a job interview.
Progress tests will be taken on a regular basis to assess student development and provide feedback. Feedback is given throughout the course in the form of one to one discussion, error correction when speaking and written corrections on essays.
Level appropriate vocabulary is presented and practiced in meaningful contexts and reinforced using activities games and quizzes. Additional phrases, idioms and expressions are added to develop the students understanding and aid their development.
