General English Standard Course

Our General English Standard Course will help students to improve all aspects of their English.

Students can take a short course to brush up their English and increase their confidence and fluency or a longer course to raise the level of their English language.

Our courses are British Council accredited and taught by qualified teachers.

In the General English Standard Course, students will have lots of listening and speaking practice in class and regular homework.

Course Objectives
Levels and Progress

Timetable

Coursebook

We lend students a coursebook (they do not have to pay extra).  This will be the basis of your course but your teacher will also bring in extra materials to make sure your course meets your specific needs.

Outside Class

Students will have regular homework to consolidate what they learn in class and they can use our library for self-study.

Social Programmes 

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.

Certificates and Reports

At the end of their studies, students will be given a certificate and a report from their teacher, provided they have attended at least 80% of lessons.

Care of Students Under the Age of 18

For those under 18, there will be dedicated staff available to help with any questions or problems that arise. Click here for more information on the support we provide.
