Organisation of the the General English course from Alpha College of English:

There is a detailed syllabus for each level and a course book and supplementary material are used in conjunction with the syllabus. The syllabus covers the four skills of speaking, listening, reading and writing as well as pronunciation, vocabulary and grammar activities. 

Classes are generally task-based and always interactive with students and teachers continually working together to improve language output. Class work includes individual, pair and group work, teacher-led discussions, debates, presentations, written tasks and listening exercises. 

At the beginning of each week the language objectives for that week are posted in the classrooms so that students can see what language areas and activities will be covered.
