English Skills Training

AHEAD’s English Skills Training (EST) runs for 30 hours. In this training program, participants’ language skills are tested to assess their progress through AHEAD’s Diagnostic and Simulated Tests, wherein each test runs for 3 hours. The training program may be stretched further to accommodate the needs of the participants especially in particular communication skills. Otherwise, participants may choose to proceed to Business English Skills Training.

It should also be noted that EST is totally different from the English as a Second Language (ESL) such that EST is not meant for beginning learners of English. Rather, it is for participants who have had extensive ESL program already–or are slightly exposed to English–but still need to strengthen their language foundations through structure and lexical resources.

Business English Skills Training

In this training program, participants’ language skills are tested to assess their progress through AHEAD’s Diagnostic and Simulated Tests, wherein each test runs for 3 hours. The training program may be stretched further to accommodate the needs of the participants (e.g., more focus on Customer Service or Business Writing, etc.) and this may also be customized for 20 hours, 40 hours, or 80 hours.
