UFO English
Course Level 1
UFO English
Brisbane & Gold Coast 074240E, Sydney pending
With Langports’ UFO English course, you will learn English at your own pace. UFO stands for USE, FOCUS, and OPTION. These are the three components of the daily timetable. You will study USE every day in the morning, the FOCUS macro-skill changes daily, and you will then have an OPTION class in the afternoon.

Uniquely, the course is designed so that you will have different classes for your skills (grammar, writing, reading, listening & speaking) that are always at your level. On the first day, you will take some short tests and you will be given a level from 1-7 for each of the 4 macro-skills (listening, reading, writing, speaking) and for grammar. In addition, you will choose an OPTION class and LANGUAGE WORKSHOPS for the afternoons. Therefore, depending on your skills, you could potentially have six different classes and six different teachers every week.
Every Monday, you will have an individual interview with your USE teacher to review your progress. If you develop your skills quickly, you can move through the levels at your own pace, optimising your learning progress.

  • Personalised timetable – different classes/levels for macro-skills
  • Available for students of all levels (each level takes approximately 10 weeks to complete)
  • Regular progress reports and weekly feedback
  • Long-term students are tracked and receive academic counselling to ensure they continue to progress

Learning at your own pace

You will have a unique timetable with different classes for all of your language skills. For example, in one week you could be placed in:

  • Level 3 Use of English class
  • Level 4 Writing class
  • Level 4 Reading class
  • Level 3 Listening class
  • Level 3 Speaking class

This means you will always be in the correct class for your level. Each week, your teacher will review your level and as you improve your classes can change.

Balance of skills

Langports’ UFO English course allows for an even balance of skills. Each week, you will experience integrated input & output skills, direct vocabulary study, grammar learning and exercises, language learning strategies as well as an even balance of the four macro-skills (writing, reading, listening & speaking). Over the week, you will receive an even balance of skill development, which will help you to improve your proficiency and ultimately achieve your desired goal.

Motivation & Feedback

In Langports’ UFO English program, you are always in the correct class for your English level. This means that your classmates will have the same level as you and you can work together to improve your English. Your class shouldn’t be too easy or too difficult, so you will always be learning! This will help you to feel confident and improve your skills. Your teacher will also be working with you constantly and give you weekly feedback on your English.
