Intensive

There are many options for the intensive course: 16, 20, 25 or 30 lessons per week. The lessons include grammar, reading, writing, listening and vocabulary extension, with a strong focus on communication. An emphasis is placed on real-life situations through role-plays, conversations, interviews, and simulated telephone dialogues.

Students have a choice of 16 lessons per week (Mon - Thu) or 20 lessons per week (Mon - Fri), which are held in the morning (from 09:00- 12:40). In addition to these lessons of general English, students can book additional afternoon options ("Focus groups"), to reach a total of 25 of 30 lessons per week.

These afternoon classes are not suitable for absolute beginners. The Focus Groups, unlike the morning classes, are designed to mimic the world beyond the classroom where communication happens between people with a varied command of English. Focus group classes, therefore, accommodate a mix of levels: strong Beginners mix with Elementary students in Survival English. The other focus groups mix students from Pre-intermediate level and higher.

Minimum age is 17 years .
