General English Overview While English may be one of South Africa’s official languages, many people still find themselves saying things like, “So U R their in Britin, than?” and confusing words like their, there and they’re or affect and effect. With a focus on fluency and the practical understanding of English, the general overview highlights reading, writing, listening and speaking – of course, speaking words and writing them can be very enlightening; afraid not and a frayed knot sound the same when you say them out loud. Covering the basics in a relaxed environment, the General English Overview won’t magic your writing into something rivalling Shakespeare, but it will help you get more comfortable with the language. International English Language Testing System IELTS Exam Orientation The International English Language Testing System IELTS is generally the test English speaking universities would require you to take if your home language is something other than English. It’s also the qualification needed for emigrating to English speaking countries like Canada or New Zealand. The orientation gives a bit of insight into the layout of the test and what kinds of questions are likely to be asked. No language skills are covered in the orientation, but if the home language on your social network reads something like 28 shots o’ rum ago thru the good ship Ye olde Network on yer Pocket Parrot the orientation will make sure you’re a little bit more prepared for the test. Introductory Business Writing Skills Course Work memos and team emails often contain sentences like “All employees are herewith instructed to return the appropriate designated contracts to the undersigned” and other jargon. The introduction to Business Writing Skills course is designed to help you understand the way words are thrown about in the corporate world; of course, knocking off an email to a buddy and sending a redflagged email to your boss require two totally different sets of skills. All the courses take place on Saturdays and last about four hours and though it could bring to mind memories of highschool, Avenue English is far better than any normal school; not just because you don’t have to wear a uniform. The highly qualified English ninjas have over twenty five years of experience teaching the language to native speakers and those whose mothertongue contains sounds Englishspeakers can’t pronounce. The relaxed atmosphere and calm confidence of the instructors is the perfect place for any level of languagelearner to get comfortable with the nuances of English.
