The Beginner level is intended for adults with low literacy skills and lays the foundation for lifelong learning.  In these courses, learners comprehend and produce basic texts related to their everyday real-life situations by appropriating the codes and conventions of oral and written language at a functional level.

The intermediate level, adults are more at ease with the language required to deal with a wider range of real-life situations. These courses enable learners to further develop their language knowledge and skills in order to adequately understand and produce simple oral and written texts on familiar topics.

The advanced courses aim to expand the adult learners’ language proficiency so as to prepare them to meet the complex challenges they face in their real-life situations. In these courses, learners use diverse language resources to interpret and create a wider variety of oral and written texts to deal effectively with more complex situations.
