Press Release: SLC Launch Online General English Courses

Specialist Language Courses is delighted to announce the launch of a suite of online General English courses.

There are 5 levels, from beginner (A1) to advanced (C2). Each level consists of 45 hours of integrated skills work – reading, listening, writing, communication – and 15 hours of grammar support and consolidation. Learners can download the accompanying grammar app, with 100s of screens of activity, and there are free lessons based on current newspaper articles uploaded every week.

The integrated skills content includes web-based work, requiring learners to go to specific online pages to research and find information so they can complete a range of tasks. Pages are constantly monitored and updated where appropriate, and learners develop the web skills they use everyday while online – all in English.

The online General English courses can be studied independently or in combination with SLC’s Technical English courses, IELTS Preparation programmes, or tutored online classes.

The courses are powered by Guided e-Learning (GEL), one of SLC’s key partners, and a leading online education company working with English language schools around the world. David Coarsey, GEL CEO, commented:

“We are delighted to be working in partnership with SLC. We believe our content is a perfect fit for SLC’s clients and powerfully complements SLC’s online courses and tutored provision.”

Chris Moore, SLC Managing Director, said:

“We’ve been working with GEL for some time now and are consistently impressed with the quality of their language learning content and their commitment to both quality and innovation. We are confident our customers will benefit significantly from being able to add General English courses to the Technical English and tutored courses we provide.”
