By the end of the program, trainees will have: enhanced their macro language skills, reinforced their basic grammatical knowledge, enhanced their academic language skills, developed language skills called basic interpersonal communication, built confidence to express themselves in English, increased their vocabulary power, increased their analytical skills and developed knowledge of processing skills.
