The first group comprised 22 participants while the second had 25 participants.

This course aimed at enhancing the participants’ proficiency and confidence level in using the language particularly at the work place. Emphasis was given to correct use of grammar particularly in the following areas: tenses, subject-verb agreement, and sentence skills. Awareness raising activities of problem sounds in English pronunciation were also dealt with.
