Queen Mary Young Adult Learners is an advanced dynamic English program, specifically designed for students from 17 to 20 years old.

Queen Mary offers English For Young Adults who has successfully completed our Teen programs and/or acquired sound 4 English skills. This program is for learners from aged 17-20 years old aims to encourage learners to think more laterally about the English language, their studies, the world around them, ensure they are exposed to the unit topic through a more familiar, or global passage with approachable vocabulary and confident with their task. This course will also give strong focus on study skills supplying students with practical guidance and support, touching on new life skills such as time management, organization and preparation, while building confidence for independent learning throughout their university career.

All Queen Mary Young Adult Learners classes are fully integrated with Cambridge exams and each course includes Cambridge practice test to support students to develop skills for taking the real KET, PET, FCE, CAE, CPE, IELTS, TOEIC, and TOEFL test.

The coursebook Skillful is used to aid this. Skillful is a brand new five-level, academic series, spanning from CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) levels A1 to C1 (foundation to advanced). Each level is split into two books, one for Reading & Writing and the other for Listening & Speaking that complement each other through parallel topics and features. Skillful not only provides the tools for academic success but creates an interactive learning environment, which encourages student debate. In every other unit, the last page presents an example scenario about a student, and asks the reader to think critically about whether they demonstrated success or showed a need for improvement.
