Semester 1

Students are supposed to have a basic knowledge of English. The major aim of the present course manual is to go deep in structural mechanisms and grammatical rules of English as they have not been well studied in secondary schools. It is also aimed at helping students master English to help them in their respective courses. It is of great importance to note that learning in an institution of higher learning requires the learner to be critical and creative. Therefore we strongly advise learners not to be bound with class notes, but to extend their learning environment by reading different materials and putting into practice what they acquire in class. This work will be supported by written texts which will be discussed in class. This implies studying their style, content, and their grammatical structure. This will help students develop oral and written skills, which will enable them to take examinations and practical work, not only in English as a course, but also in all other courses taught in English
