The Foundation Programme of Intensive English (FPIE) is a course designed to improve the students’ English language capabilities. It is targeted towards individuals who do not have the required English language skills to allow them direct entry onto university level programmes.
Why enrol on this programme?
Students will improve their overall English language skills with a view to studying at university level as well as obtaining an internationally accredited certificate of English language competence.
The FPIE prepares students to sit the Academic IELTS or the Pearson Test of English Academic (PTE).
IELTS, TOEFL and PTE are the Standard English language proficiency examinations which are accepted by the Ministry of Education (MOE) for admission to colleges and universities in the UAE. Both IELTS and PTE are recognised globally and valid for two years.
Academic IELTS is an English language test which assesses all four language skills – listening, reading, writing and speaking.
The PTE is the latest internationally accepted test of academic English to enter the market and is fully accredited by the MOE. It provides an overall score based on communicative skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing) and enabling skills such as grammar, oral fluency, pronunciation, spelling, vocabulary and written discourse).
The FPIE course focuses on the development of the four language skills – listening, reading, writing and speaking. At times these skills are taught separately and at other times the skills are integrated. Blended learning techniques are used which combines traditional face-to-face and online learning so that the online component becomes a natural extension of traditional classroom learning. The result is potentially a more robust educational experience than either traditional or fully online learning can offer.
Students can normally expect to be entered by EAU for either IELTS Academic or PTE Academic at the end of the semester.
The course consists of the development of the four language skills
