Our General English classes are ideal for anyone who wants to improve their all-round communication skills. Our classes focus on the practical needs of students and can be studied on a full-time or part-time basis.
We offer General English classes at six levels, from beginner to advanced.
Classes range 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 to determine which level you will be placed in. We run classes from beginner-level to advanced-level.
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, meaning that there is always something to gain from our classes.
