Waikato Pathways College
General English is an English language programme designed for students who wish to learn and improve their everyday English skills. The course is suitable for students preparing to enter the Academic English programme and go on to study at university in New Zealand.
The programme includes core language skills and vocabulary, fluency and accuracy in listening, speaking, reading and writing.
You can study the General English programme from a minimum of three weeks, up to six months. Classes are offered from elementary to advanced levels, and can be full-time (23 hours per week) or part-time (15 hours per week). Intakes start every second Monday, unless stated below.
If you do not provide evidence of an external examination you will sit an English language placement test during the first week to assess your entry level with the option of further testing to move up to higher levels. Students entering the Academic English programme can also sit a placement test.
You will receive a Waikato Pathways College Certificate of Attendance. Individual graded reports are also available.
