English for General Purposes

The English for General Purposes Programme is designed to enhance and improve a student’s confidence when speaking and writing English in daily situations. Classes are available no matter what the student’s pre-enrolment comprehension level, and the areas covered provide advance preparation for the ESOL examinations.

The Trinity College London ESOL qualifications are designed for young adult and adult students who want to learn English as part of their plans to live and work in the UK. The Step 1 and 2 exams target those who have basic English communication skills but are not yet ready for the Skills for Life Exams. These exams allow students to improve their English capabilities while working towards entry level ESOL qualifications.

ESOL Skills for Life qualifications consist of five levels:

  • Entry 1: suitable for those who can read, write, and communicate in simple English
  • Entry 2: geared toward students who can understand and express themselves at a higher level, such as engage in fluid Q&A sessions, write short but organised texts, and use verb tenses correctly
  • Entry 3: suitable for students who can formulate more complex concepts in spoken and written English
  • Level 1: aimed at students who can read and understand texts covering unfamiliar subjects, create short reports, complete job applications, and comfortably discuss more complex subjects in English.
  • Level 2: suitable for those who are fluent enough in English to clearly communicate detailed information, contribute effectively to discussions, and create more complex texts such as formal reports.

The B1 ESOL Entry 3 Level exam at Trinity College London is another intensive test of a student’s basic English skills and is suitable for those who are applying for ILR and British Citizenship.

The English for General Purposes Programme prepares students for these exams, thereby supporting their academic and professional success in the UK.
