ENGLISH SKILLS DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITY

27th September 2006

 

International students and workers across the region are being reminded by the University of Lincoln that it is not too late to improve their English language skills.

 

The Lincoln Business School, based at the university’s Brayford Pool campus, is running a number of courses aimed at helping non-English speakers to develop their language skills for both study and employment.

 

The Cambridge English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) courses, which will run at the university until June 2007, are renowned as being the world’s leading range of certificates for learners of English.

 

The Lincoln Business School is offering three levels of the Cambridge ESOL courses - First Certificate, Advanced and Proficiency - and has already attracted students of a wide range of different nationalities including Spanish, Polish, Korean and Taiwanese.

 

Places are still available on the courses, which have recorded an increased intake for the third successive year and also boast a higher than average pass rate.

 

The fees for studying the course are £350 for the year, payable in three instalments, with an additional registration fee of £60 charged by Cambridge University.

 

Anyone interested in enrolling on the Cambridge ESOL courses at the University of Lincoln should contact Andy Dalglish of the Lincoln Business School on 01522 8856344 or via email: lbs@lincoln.ac.uk
