About Us

Language Centre provides high-quality intensive English language instructions to all PPU students, assists them with language and cultural adjustments, and provides them with the necessary services in a variety of service courses to ensure maximum learning and well-being. The administration of the PPU provides a supportive environment to the language centre in which students can continue to study, work and grow professionally in English language. Other languages like Hebrew, French, Spanish and others are within the scope of interest of the PPU.
The LC Language Center promotes and supports the teaching and learning of languages throughout the University, including the supporting of coursework that develops language capacity for the professional and educational aspirations of students, as a context for understanding other cultures, and to develop understanding of one's heritage and the heritage of others and it does so flexibly in accordance with the needs of its users.. The Language Center is looking to be a gathering place for interaction among cultures and language speakers.
The LC prides itself on its experienced and highly qualified faculty. The LC instructors have PhD and masters degrees, and many have lived and taught English all over the world.
Admission to university programs is predicated by the applicant holding high secondary school (tawjihi) degree. The student must sit for the English placement test in the language center and then join either the intensive, remedial or EI course. The TOEFL test is also part of the LC activities in terms of organizing training courses with the Department of Continuing Education or holding the test in the computer lab in Abu Romman Building.
Language Centre Mission statement
Helping students advance their English proficiency in a small, friendly learning environment.
 
To achieve our mission, the Language Centre aims to:

  • Ensure access to outstanding language teaching and support for language learning for all current members of the University
  • Support the highest levels of academic achievement by students whose first language is not English
  • Exploit the latest technologies and pedagogies to develop the language teaching and learning materials.
  • Foster learner autonomy in language learners, whether studying independently and/or attending courses within the University
  • Collaborate and share expertise with other language learning providers within the University and in other organizations nationally and internationally
  • Promote language learning and access to university language study to students in all colleges .

In order to accomplish its goals for the PPU students and staff alike, the Language Center is proficiency-oriented and standards-based. We try to make sure that learners learn to speak, listen, read, and write in ways that are immediately useful in a real world setting. Based on discourse functions, this orientation is adaptive, compensatory, and developmental. Standards-based refers to connections that learners make between languages, cultures, and various academic areas; the knowledge of comparisons between languages and cultures; and knowledge of communities that speak a particular language. Our programs are attentive to the pragmatics of each language and culture and respectful of the relationship between genre and function.
