This curriculum is designed for Beginner 1 and Beginner 2 students. Students will be tested to make sure they are well placed in appropriate levels. Students are interested in learning English for different reasons: work, travel, to improve their communication skills, etc. Those learners who are already familiar with English will be able to move quickly to more advanced language learning concepts.
This curriculum is designed for a course of approximately 60 hours of instruction and takes students from the verb ‘to be’ through present, past and future forms, as well as other basic structures such as the comparative and superlative forms, the use of ‘some’ and ‘any‘, ‘have got‘, etc.
This course is geared towards adult learners who need English for work and, as such, it concentrates on vocabulary and forms that are useful for the working world. Each lesson is followed by a planned review lesson which allows students a chance to review what they have learned. This syllabus can be adapted to fit students’ needs and is presented as a basis on which to build an elementary level ESOL course.
