Pre-Level 1 free course
Students who score 20 on the VEPT will be eligible to take a free 16-hour ‘Pre-Level 1’ course,
which will run four hours per day, for four days before the start of Module 1 (if lessons are 100%
online, this will be reduced to three hours per day).
The course is free and is designed to help those students with very little or no English, to grasp the
basics so that they are ready to cope with Level 1. Students will learn the basic structure of the
language as well as the essential vocabulary they need to make sense of what is expected in Level 1.
 
The course covers the following areas:
Greetings
Alphabet
Numbers 1-100
Classroom Language
Basic Adjectives
Common Verb Collocations
Question Words
Introducing Yourself
Present Simple
Students who do not take the VEPT cannot join the course, so if you are worried
that your English level is low, please take the test so that you have the opportunity
to join the course if you need to.
