Oral English

SeaLand Oral English
 
With the development of China, more and more foreigners come to visit, study, work and live in China. At the same time, many Chinese people choose to go abroad and travel around the world. They study, work and live in the countries that they like. Regardless of whether staying at home or going abroad, English skill is essential.
 
English is one of the most popular language, and has the third largest number of native speakers, next to Chinese and Spanish. It is the most widely learned second language. It is the official language or one of the official languages of more than 60 countries. It has almost become a universal language in the world. Thus, the importance of learning English is obvious.
 
At present, English education in China generally focuses on reading and writing rather than listening and speaking. Many people are actually learning "dumb English". They can understand the English words, but they can't speak English. They don’t have chance to use them in daily communication, or they don't know how to express their own meanings in English. SeaLand provides English training services, especially oral English, for adults who want to learn or improve their English.
 
We offer adults oral English training courses all the year round. Our training goals are:
 
1.   Daily Communication
Students will be able to understand English letters and phonetics. Course topics include personal information, school life, friends and family, health, living environment, time, shopping, work, life and hobbies. By learning these topics, students can use simple English to conduct basic conversations.
 
2.   Basic Communication
We begin to add passive voice, singular and plural, preposition, and focus on three basic tenses: the present tense, the present progressive tense and the past tense to build a basic grammar system. Students begin to be familiar with general questions and various special questions and learn to express basic emotions and attitudes, and to speak more complete and coherent sentences.
 
3.   Fluent Communication
We continue to deepen on topics closely related to life. Students will learn comparative and superlative, begin to use various structures to express what will happen. Attributive clause and object clause on the basis of simple sentence will be taught. These will lay a foundation for the higher stage of learning.
 
4.   Clear Express
Present perfect tense, past perfect tense, adverbial clause and other grammatical points will be added in the sentence. Students will learn to use present participle and infinitive verb, try to read English articles in the news and start to learn English writing. In spoken language, students can express their ideas completely and their language output becomes complex and diverse.
 
5.   Precise Expression
Students will learn how to describe personal abilities, express opinions clearly, analyze major events, explain goals and motives, and cope with complex and abstract problems. In grammar, complex structures such as clauses and subjunctive mood will be added.
 
6.   Use English Skillfully
Students will focus on developing workplace English skills, learning how to sell yourself, build self-confidence, make suggestions, write effective job applications, conduct successful interviews, improve interpersonal relationships, etc.
