This programme will teach you to communicate in most situations with some independence and fluency so as to take part in everyday life, in a workplace and/or for academic study. Learner independence is encouraged through the use of online and project-based learning which develop generic skills that are transferable to work and study, such as computer skills, time management and team work.

You can also do this programme in two parts, completing the two halves at different times, if this fits better with your requirements.
