Free English Language support classes
Thursday 24th January to Thursday 21st March 2013 (THURSDAYS ONLY)
Swansea University – Taliesin Extension Building

ELTS, the department of Swansea University which supports overseas students and provides training for people to be English Language teachers, is again running its popular free English Language support classes from 24th January until the 21st March. The classes are run informally, so there is no registration or forms to fill out, and participants can attend as many, or as few classes as they wish. If participants come to most of the classes, we will issue an attendance certificate.

On this occasion, we are funded to reimburse (in cash) daily bus travel within Swansea (we need to see the ticket or pass).
These free classes are provided for any non-native speaker at pre-intermediate level and upper intermediate level, or above. There are two separate classes, running at the same time. Pre-intermediate students have a basic ability to communicate and understand, but can make much improvement in all areas. Upper-intermediate students have an effective command of English, but this is not perfect, and vocabulary can be extended, grammar fine-tuned and speaking and listening ability can be consolidated.

The teachers taking the classes are all full time Masters students at the university, but will always be monitored by experienced lecturers from ELTS.
Joining the class will give valuable practice in English, and will introduce participants to the wider community of English Language learners in Swansea. And, it’s all free!
