About this course

Learn English basics

Here at Pitman Training, we provide expert-led English basics training both online and in-centre. Covering English reading, writing, speaking and listening, in this course you will learn English basics at a comfortable pace.

Not only do we provide top quality tutoring, but we also curate our course around your individual needs. For instance, rather than offering a ‘one size fits all’ model, we provide a proficiency assessment prior to the course so you can rest assured that you receive the right units for your skill level. Assessments are delivered every three months, allowing you to advance your course as you improve your English with us.

We also tailor the course units to meet your specific interests. After all, students learn English fast when they are absorbing subjects that they are passionate about. Whether that be travel, sports, or world news, there is an English basics unit for you at Pitman. All units are updated regularly, too, so you’ll always be keen to get to work.

The topic of the units is your choice and there is a wide selection of subjects available, such as: 

  • Sports
  • Technology
  • Travel
  • Food & Drink
  • Celebrities & Entertainment
  • Arts & Culture
  • Shopping
  • Business
  • Family & Friends
  • Fitness & Healthy Lifestyle
  • Health
  • Hospitality
  • Manufacturing
  • Personal Finance
  • Politics
  • World News

Please note this is not an IELTS qualification.

Learn English grammar and improve English writing skills

Grammar is the building block of any language—proficiency in English grammar not only supports your writing, but also your reading, listening and speaking skills.

In this course, you will curate a ‘grammar guide’; your touchpoint for syntax, tenses and everything in-between. You will then review your guide on a weekly basis during your English for beginners training to help you retain grammatical information.

Improve spoken English

Our English basics course helps improve spoken English by building your vocabulary, working on pronunciation, and executing spoken fluency in the language.

Within this course, you will accumulate English words in your ‘word bank’ which will act as your studying resource for the following week. Along with vocabulary, you will also learn how to listen and respond to native English speakers.
