Our General English 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 course, students will have lots of listening and speaking practice in class and regular homework.
We aim to enable students to communicate effectively in English across borders and cultures by:
- Increasing their confidence and fluency in English, particularly in listening and speaking
- Improving their level of English through a combination of language input and practice in the skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing
- Developing study skills that will enable them to continue to learn English after their course
Levels and Progress
Students will have a test on their first day to place them in a class at the right level. Our weekly progress tests and monthly tutorials then makes sure students move up to a higher level as soon as they are ready.
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.
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.
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.
