About this course

AIBT’s ELICOS (English Language Intensive Courses for Overseas Students) courses focus on an active-learning approach and our students take a more dominant role in the classroom.

They are given tasks where the teacher acts as a facilitator and communication is based on students giving opinions and reasons for those opinions.
