General English 20 Lessons

20 Lessons/ 15 Hours of study per week

This course is mornings only which gives time in the afternoons to take private lessons, do some self study or relax with friends.

Our General English course offers everything you need to learn English and meet your goals.

Course Objectives

We aim to enable you to communicate effectively in English across borders and cultures by:

  • Increasing your confidence and fluency in English, particularly in listening and speaking
  • Improving the level of your English through a combination of language input and practice in the skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing
  • Developing the study skills that will enable you to continue to learn English after your course.


We lend you a coursebook (you don’t 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

You will have regular homework to consolidate what you have learnt in class and you can use our library and study centre for self study. We also arrange fun social activities where you can practise English with friends in an informal setting.

Levels and Progress

You will have a test on your first day to place you in a class at the right level. Our weekly progress tests and monthly tutorials make sure you move up to a higher level as soon as you are ready.

The levels are:

  • Elementary (CEFR A1-A2) Can communicate with enough language for basic needs and simple situations.
  • Pre-Intermediate (CEFR A2) Can communicate with enough language for everyday practical needs.
  • Intermediate (CEFR B1) Can communicate effectively in most situations but sometimes has to work hard to communicate effectively.
  • Upper Intermediate (CEFR B2) Can communicate effectively in most situations and can usually easily re-phrase in order to be understood.
  • Advanced (CEFR C1) Can communicate effectively in all but the most difficult situations.
