Adult English for Intermediate Level Learners (2)
This course is a continuation of Adult English for Intermediate Level Learners 1.
It focuses on developing language skills for intermediate level students of English. Language development is combined with building and improving skills transferable to everyday life and
career. Students are able to use the English language for social, academic and professional purposes. Vocabulary building and grammar concepts involving the application of intermediate
