The Language Remedial Site is a special zone dedicated to those students who want to improve a specific area or overcome a certain weakness in English.
The idea of this site was initiated in 2005 by Dr. Nihal Ameirah , Head of English Language Department at Petra University and established and managed by Yousef Bakr , English Language Lecturer , Quality Assurance Manager.
LRS will particularly geared towards attracting other potential students who are keen to improve their level of English for the purpose of excellence or employment. This will take place through the provision of high quality educational products and interactive communication with the instructors.
LRS is NOT a language centre nor an English club ,It will not therefore substitute the instructor, it is rather an out patient clinic for students of specific weaknesses in certain eras of English, in other words it aimed at assisting students of special English needs.
LRS aspires to upgrade the standard of weak English language students at Petra University to enable them to bridge the gap between them and other higher standard colleagues.
Assess and deliver English training needs to students within Petra University of all years and departments, and provide them with the materials, advice, classes, presentations, electronic references or handouts, as the case may be, to enable those targeted students to develop their four skills (reading, writing, conversation and comprehension) ,by means of tailor-made assignments and research. If necessary .
