Global English


Global English is a unique program that combines both general English and academic English skills. This proven program has helped thousands of VGC students reach their English language goals for exam preparation, academics, daily communication, and business.

As an integrated course, Global English works on speaking, listening, writing and reading, as well as grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation. Whether for academics, everyday communication, or business, this is the perfect class to help you improve your English.

Please note: Each level is two months in duration (except level 1, which is one month long). Levels 1 and 2 have no elective class as students are still developing general English skills. During the elective period these students will continue to study with their main class.


By the end of your studies in this course you will:

  • have expanded your vocabulary in relation to everyday topics.
  • have improved your general English skills, such as the ability to speak English and to listen to real life situations in English.
  • have developed confidence to use your English.
  • have developed fluency and accuracy in spoken and written English.
  • have improved your English grammar.
