English Preparatory Program

There are three components to the three-level English preparatory program, integrated skills, soft skills development and individualized learning.

  • The integrated skills section is designed to raise awareness of English grammatical structure and genres in English communication at a formal, academic level, as well as for social interaction.
  • The section on soft skills is designed to prepare students for learning and working in the 21st Century, paying particular attention to teamwork, leadership, problem solving and critical thinking with the use of presentations, role plays and language functions.
  • Individualized learning solidifies academic literacy skills and strategies by giving the students the individual attention they require to meet the rigorous academic work at AUPP.
