The General English language course offered by RBS ELC is an integrated program for adults who are learning English as a foreign language. The aim of the program is to enable students who do not have sufficient English language skills to understand and use this language appropriately in social and professional settings. The program is suited for participants with all levels of initial knowledge of English. Teaching methods depend on the level of the course but you will have 2 instructors every class: one for the reading part and the other for the grammar part of the course.
How to apply?
To help us give you the best level match, we ask you to take the English language proficiency test (this includes a test and an interview) before you register. Press here to sign up for the test!
Registration for the interview is right after the test. Interviews are usually organized on the next working day after the test. During the interview a member of the English Language Center faculty will further assess your language skills, comment on your test result and offer you a course that suits your level of English and interests. Tests, interviews and classes are held at 11 Skolas Str, Riga.
