General English Courses

Our General English classes are ideal for anyone who wants to improve their all-round communication skills. Classes focus on the practical needs of both short-term and long-term visitors to the UK. General English can be studied on a full-time or part-time basis.

We offer General English classes at 6 levels, from beginner to advanced.

You can study from a minimum of one week to one year or more, giving you choice and flexibility.

You will take a placement test before you start at the school to determine which level you will be placed in. We run classes from beginner-level to advanced-level. Please note that our beginner-level classes assume knowledge of the alphabet, basic reading and writing skills, and basic vocabulary.

You will study a balanced mix of skills (reading, writing, listening and speaking) and systems (grammar, vocabulary, functions and pronunciation), with an emphasis on practical, everyday communication.

We carry out weekly tests to make sure that you are progressing and we do regular checks to see if you are meeting your goals. Our teachers work hard to make sure that you are being challenged and are that you are improving your own weak areas.

We make our lessons fun, interesting and useful. We give all students the chance to suggest lesson topics, classroom activities and areas of language to study. Your ideas and opinions are important to us!

Our General English courses run all year round and you can begin the course most Mondays as we operate a system of continuous enrolment. The school is open for 50 weeks each year and we only close for 2 weeks during the winter break. This year we close on Friday 22nd December and re-open on Monday 8th January 2018.

The only other day the school is closed is Easter Monday which in 2017 falls on Monday 17th April.

I have only been here for a few weeks, but I think it’s a very nice place and the teachers are good.
