Intensive 30+

The intensive English course is exclusively for 30+ students and consists of 20 or 30 lessons per week. With a focus on fluency, the General English course allows you to improve your English and gain a practical understanding of the language and how to use it. You will focus on the 4 skills: reading, writing, speaking and listening, in order to improve your level and maximise your ability to use English.

What can you expect on this course?
Real English
You will experience how English is spoken and used in many real-life situations. Relevant and engaging lessons will develop your understanding of grammar, vocabulary, idioms and pronunciation, and allow you to practise the use of everyday English through the four skills: reading, writing, speaking and listening.

Creative and Energetic Classes
When it comes to creating lessons, the teachers know what works. Classes are dynamic, engaging and motivating, designed to activate and build upon your strengths, whilst also giving targeted attention to your weaker areas. Relaxed and informal classroom environments create an encouraging atmosphere to help you build your confidence, realise your potential, and advance towards fluency.

Learn by Doing
Progress is maximised as you are encouraged to learn by doing. The task-based lessons focus on the active production of English, promoting class participation and interaction between students.

Improve Your ‘Thinking Time’
As your skills and confidence develop with support from your teachers, so too will your ability to listen, understand and respond quickly and effectively in English. You will notice these improvements most of all when you take your English outside of the classroom and into everyday conversation.

Expert Support
Your teachers are trained to deliver on-going support, feedback and care throughout your time at the school. You will be taught by at least two teachers, exposing you to a variety of voices, improving your listening and boosting your vocabulary.

Authentic Materials
There is no substitute for authentic English, so in addition to text books, the teachers use real-life resources taken from newspapers, TV, radio and the Internet. The authentic nature of these materials will give you an appreciation of the richness of the English language used in a variety of everyday contexts.

Minimum age is 30 years .

Business English 30+

The Business English course is exlusively for students aged 30+ and consists of 20 or 30 lessons per week (1 lesson=45 minutes). The Business English course takes place in a Minigroup of 6 students which allows a more effective learning environment.

What can you expect on this course?

More individual attention
Studying in a more intimate class of just six students creates a strong class dynamic and allows you to spend more time in direct contact with your teacher. Your specific linguistic needs will be identified, monitored and met by your teacher, allowing for more personal encouragement, feedback and help.

Flexible and personal

Fewer class members and creative, responsive teachers allow lessons to take a natural flow. As you feel an increased sense of participation and motivation, your course will adapt to cover the language areas and skills that you need to focus on.

Improve fluency quickly and effectively
The flexibility of the teachers combined with a small class size means lessons can progress at a faster pace. You will improve your ‘thinking time’, in terms of listening, comprehending and responding, which are essential for your fluency.

Smaller classes, more confidence
In a smaller group you will enjoy a more relaxed atmosphere and stronger relationships within your class. Your confidence will grow as you feel safe and secure, with more opportunities to interact with your classmates and teacher.

Topics relevant to you
The Business Mini group course is a flexible course and may include any area of the English language. Lessons will be tailored to the interests and linguistic needs of your particular group.

Minimum age is 30 years .
