The Almaty Centre, based at the DMUK campus, provides academic English support to all DMUK students studying on IYZ, UG and PG programmes. Studying at a British University through the medium of English can be a challenge, particularly the assessment, and our experienced EAP lecturers provide this expert support.

The Almaty Centre also provides IELTS preparation courses throughout the year to both our future students and to anyone taking their IELTS exam. The best place to prepare for an academic IELTS is at a UK university with trainers who really understand the demands of the IELTS exam.

In addition, the Centre provides other high quality English language training for clients and businesses. This includes a Modular Business English course for individuals.

English for specific purpose (ESP) courses

  • At the Centre for English Language Learning, we can develop a bespoke English language course for employees at your company.

    We will conduct a comprehensive needs analysis, identifying exactly what specific English is required in your company, and identify the English language proficiency levels of your employees. We will then design a programme in consultation with you, including syllabus, teaching, and learning resources as well as when and where you would like to classes to take place. We can also provide a range of assessment solutions in partnership with the British Council depending on the purpose of the English language proficiency certificate.

The process for CELL's ESP Quadrant is as follows:

Stage 1: Development

Identifying the English language business needs of your business:

  • English level testing
  • Questionnaire design and implementation
  • Work shadowing/observation
  • Interviews with employees
  • Sampling of work-related tasks e.g. reports, emails

Stage 2: Design

Following the development stage, we design the course to suit your needs and wants

  • Identify learning outcomes and course content
  • Determine course length, schedule and intensity
  • Agree number of employees participating

Stage 3: Detail

After designing the course, we plan the specific details:

  • Production of a detailed syllabus
  • Selection and production of teaching and learning materials
  • Identification of formative and summative assessment
  • Evaluation of course and quality assurance

Stage 4: Delivery

Finally, we deliver the course assessing the effectiveness and quality during and after:

  • Identification and preparation of course trainer/s
  • Mode of delivery e.g., online/face-to-face
  • Location and times of classes
  • Assessment of learning outcomes
  • Issuance of certification of achievement
  • CELL’s endorsement of your company
  • Quality assessment/assurance through course follow-up feedback questionnaire
