English for IT

English for IT (EIT) is a focused English language course written specifically for IT workers who are already into their careers or just about to embark. As their other language, they are using English in their workplaces but intend to improve it further to increase their work effectiveness and productivity. It is our vision that eventually, higher English competency will contribute to their career advancement, locally or in other countries.

EIT was designed to upgrade English communication skills in the course of everyday work in the workplace. Upon successful completion of this course, the student is expected to:

  • be more intelligible, fluent and confident in using English (listening, speaking, reading, writing) by simulating common communication situations in the IT workplace
  • learn applicable discourse structures, vocabulary and pronunciation
  • learn of ways of continuing to improve one’s English and of the vast learning resources readily available
