In addition, emphasis is given to understanding and using different grammatical structures, as well as expanding and applying vocabulary. Course content includes a variety of technical areas, for example technology, planning, projects, design and careers. Information is provided on how to obtain international language qualifications through either the Cambridge English Language Assessment exams (for example, the First Certificate Exam) or the International English Language Testing System (IELTS). If participants are interested in pursuing these qualifications, some preparation and practice for the exams will be included in the course.
