Bayan College

Foundation program:
The foundation program is a comprehensive intensive program designed to prepare students for entry to the College’s degree programs. The foundation program is for students whose level of English language proficiency is very basic.

Students are given a placement test to determine whether they will be placed in Level 1, 2 or 3. The placement test is scored out of 50 points. Students are allocated to one of the three levels according to the marks they achieve as follows:

  • Level 1: If you score 29 points or below.
  • Level 2: If you score between 30 and 39
  • Level 3: If you score above 40 points.

The Foundation Program classes are small, ranging in size from ten to twenty students and are taught by experienced teachers using interactive, communicative teaching styles.

One semester (four months) is required to complete each level.

Level 1 program consists of listening & speaking (EFL 011), grammar (EFL 012), and reading & writing (ESL 0XX).

Level 2 program consists of listening & speaking (EFL 021), grammar (EFL 022), and reading & writing (ESL 1XX). ESL 1XX is a credit hour course counted toward General Education Requirements. Students at level 2 are also required to take one course (Math or CIS) to be used for credit toward their degree.

Level 3 program consists of listening & speaking (EFL 031), grammar (EFL 032), and reading & writing (ESL 2XX). ESL 2XX is a credit hour course counted toward General Education Requirements. Students at level 3 are also required to take one course (Math or CIS) to be used for credit toward their degree
