Our Intensive course consists of 15 hours of General English lessons in the morning PLUS 7.5 hours of afternoon lessons per week. Students choose between a number of afternoon modules in specific areas including IELTS preparation, Communication Skills, One-to-one English or Parent and Junior English.

Modules you can choose from:

IELTS Preparation

A high IELTS score can open up a world of opportunity. This module will teach you the IELTS exam requirements and format. We will work with you to develop a strategy to pass with the highest possible score. Classes include practice of all question types to ensure that there are no surprises on the exam day. For a high score, students need extensive practice of reading, writing, speaking and listening; therefore, combining a General English course with IELTS Preparation is great exam preparation. We can also help you to apply for the exam in one of the nearby test centres.
