This General English Course has six (6) levels and each level comprises 14 weeks of face-to-face study (of training and assessment) 20 hours per week over 3 days per week. Each level will have intakes every week, commencing on the Monday of Week 1 of a 14-week timetable, which includes public holidays and re-assessment and catch-up days up to a maximum of 18 students per Teacher. Each level has been specifically designed to facilitate self-directed learning, through student-centred activities, with a focus on task-based learning and communicative competence, which is supported by Teacher intervention where necessary. It effectively mixes the four English Language macro-skills as well as English Grammar skills to optimise the possibility of students reaching their English language learning goals. • First level: 14 weeks General English – Beginner level • Second level: 14 weeks General English – Elementary level • Third Level: 14 weeks General English – Pre-Intermediate level; and • Fourth level: 14 weeks General English – Intermediate level • Fifth Level: 14 weeks General English – Upper Intermediate level • Sixth Level: 14 weeks General English – Advanced level

Students will be required to undertake a Pre – Entry Test in order to be placed in their correct level, or will have achieved a passing grade (60%) in a General English Course level. To determine the placement level for overseas students undertaking the Pre – Entry Test, it will be the lowest placement level, as assessed by AIIT’s ELICOS Director of Studies, for Reading, Writing, and Listening and Speaking. Therefore, the deemed entry level for each student will be the decisive factor when determining the length of the General English course when enrolling an ELICOS student i.e. based on the number of levels a student will be required to complete, this will be either 14, 28, 42, 56, 70 or 78 weeks. In addition, all enrolling students will be required to complete all the timetabled training and assessment activities for the levels, in which they have enrolled in this course, as no Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) will be assessed, as this has already been taken into account when determining the appropriate placement level for individual students.
