LTC’s General English Plus course is suitable whether you want a short course to brush up your English or a longer course to raise your English language level.

In your morning General English classes you work on all areas of your English: listening, speaking, reading, writing, grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation. In the afternoon Plus classes, you can improve your Communication Skills or, if your level is high enough, you can also choose Business English or IELTS Exam Preparation.

You will study in a small mixed-nationality class (maximum 12 students).

All our courses are British Council accredited, ISI certified and taught by suitably qualified teachers.

20 lessons (15 hours) per week.

You will have lots of listening and speaking practice in class, though you will also study reading, writing, grammar and vocabulary and regular homework. We will also give you regular progress tests and a tutorial every month so that you can measure your progress.
