We lend students a coursebook (there is no need for them to purchase one). Teachers will also bring extra materials to the lessons for students to keep. Should a student wish to purchase their own copy of a coursebook, we can advise where to purchase this from.
Students will have regular homework to consolidate what they learn in class and they can use our library for self-study.
Whilst you study with us we will make sure you have plenty of time to have fun and make friends. We offer varied social programmes throughout the year for adult students which vary each week. We suggest students bring £15 per week to cover activity costs.
