Students and professionals from across the world explore academic and professional opportunities in English speaking countries such as Australia, Canada, US, and the UK. One hurdle is that most of these students and professionals are from non-English speaking countries and may not be proficient in that language. English has been one of the most widely used languages in academic and professional contexts and it is imperative, for people seeking new opportunities, to learn the language. The rise in the demand for courses is an indication that English is gaining importance in academic and professional settings across the world.
Universities, colleges, and other education providers are increasingly offering foundation, preparation, or certificate courses in English. The most popular courses are;
- English as a Second Language (ESL)
- English as an Additional Language (EAL)
- English for Academic Purposes (EAP)
English courses are designed to improve the language proficiency of students through dedicated modules in reading, writing, listening, and speaking. These courses are either delivered full-time or part-time. The instructors provide regular constructive feedback to students and create opportunities for students to interact with each other in English to assist them in learning the language better. The advantages of these programs are that it meets the entry requirements for university courses, helps to secure employment, increases career and travel opportunities, and improves the general confidence of the students in dealing with day-to-day life.
