UNIVERSITY TO HOLD LANGUAGE EXAMS

 

International students and foreign nationals are being given the opportunity to improve their English in a course run by the University of Lincoln.

 

The university is offering a 20-week course, consisting of two-hour sessions, to anyone wishing to develop their speaking, listening, reading and writing skills in English.

The exams, which are taken by around 1.5 million people every year, provide an internationally recognised certificate which also helps to improve an individual’s prospects for employment.

The university is offering the course at three levels of English which cover first certificate, advanced and proficiency. 

The course is open to both university students and any non-native speakers of English, who will also get the chance to learn about English culture with excursions off-campus to places of historical, cultural and social interest.

 

It will be taught by fully qualified teachers and students will have full access to learning resources in the university’s new Great Central Warehouse Library building.

  

“This is a great opportunity for anyone wishing to study English as a foreign language,” said the university’s English Languages Co-ordinator, Andrew Daglish.

Cambridge examinations are acknowledged all over the world and are recognised by universities, employers and national education authorities in many countries.”

The course will run from Tuesday 5th October until Tuesday 14th December and will then restart in the New Year between 11th January and 8th March 2005, with examinations taking place on 12th March.

Anyone wishing to attend the course or looking for more information should contact Andrew on 01522 886344 or email adaglish@lincoln.ac.uk.
