To provide the students with a detailed knowledge of English foundation enabling them to

  • have further developed their practical English language skills and their knowledge about the language itself and how it is used
  • have gained knowledge about cultures where English is the main language,
  • and understand how English opens opportunities to develop communication between people, and create understanding and respect for other cultures
  • have further developed their sociolinguistic and other communicative skills English, and which will also form the basis for their continued development as teachers
  • use online resources and present and share information digitally
    The foundation program is designed to give a comprehensive introduction to English as a second-level subject to students in their First year of teacher education, to students pursuing a Bachelor‟s degree, and to students who wish to study a single subject at this level.
    This course is designed for the intermediate level students to improve all four language skills- listening, speaking, reading and writing. The course is divided into two parts, each dealing with one pair of skills- the speaking and listening is one pair and the reading and writing is the other. The students are introduced to strategies of each skill and are expected to use them in and beyond the course. They practice reading both fiction and non-fiction, writing in different genres, listening to tracks and presenting to audience.
    The materials for the course are developed in line with the students‟ present knowledge and the level they are expected to achieve. Besides, active participation of the students in the class proceedings is encouraged and enforced to create better effect of learning.
