English Courses

The English curriculum is aligned to the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) for languages. It takes learners from the beginning of the A1 stage to the end of the B2 stage using digital resources. The focus is on language learning and teaching through "flipped classrooms," "task-based learning," "autonomous learning" and "lifelong learning." This qualifies learners to enhance their language proficiency and meet the needs of a highly competitive employment market. The CEFR proposes a model of language learning that is based on two key notions of tasks and interaction as well as communicative language usage in authentic situations.

The English curriculum is 16 courses, covering four stages. By the end of each stage, learners obtain a stage certificate with their CEFR level, which is internationally benchmarked.

Admission Requirements
  • The Standardized English Proficiency Test (SEPT) is administered by the Evaluation, Testing and Assessment Department to each new student, whereby he or she is placed in the appropriate English course. Students who pass one course of English are promoted to the next course.

  • Applicants must have basic computer literacy and English alphabet knowledge.

Throughout the English courses, learners are evaluated continuously at regular intervals. This is done through a variety of tasks that range from storytelling, role-playing, monologues, and presentations. Final grades are not based on attendance since, in accordance with SCE’s attendance policy, learners must attend at least 75 percent of the course.
