Preparatory Year Program

Objective Learning Resources Course Content Study Plan
 
Objective

The objective of the English Language program in the Preparatory Year Deanship (PYD) is to build foundational English skills for students to be used in university courses. The PYD English program is a skills-based program that focuses on the four language skills (reading, listening, speaking and writing). Emphasis is equally placed on each of these skills to meet the objective of the program.
The PYD program offers four English courses. Students are enrolled in English 1 or English 2 level according to an online placement test. They must complete level 4 English as part of the requirements to pass the PYD program successfully.

Learning Resources

The PYD English program uses the North Star series (4th edition), developed by Pearson Longman. The first level is given to beginners, who should gradually reach the fourth level, designated upper intermediate. Each level provides students and teachers with a fully integrated approach that teaches each of the four skills based on two textbooks. More information on the North Star Series is available at:
