New Skills in English: Level 1

About the New Skills in English series

New Skills in English is a new two-level course that prepares students for entry into English-medium study. Rather than focusing on exam preparation, New Skills in English teaches necessary skills as part of a systematic programme of language development. The course builds the skills required for lectures, tutorials, reading research and written assignments in English.

It is also ideal for students who wish to improve their scores in skill-based examinations for university entry requirements, such as the International English Language Testing System (IELTS).

New Skills in English teaches academic English from Intermediate to Upper-Intermediate level (CEF: B1–B2, IELTS: 4.0–6.0).

The New Skills in English website provides students with the opportunity to practise, and improve on, the skills learnt in the course. Student resources include: Listening, Speaking, Reading, Vocabulary and Grammar practice activities.
