English lessons
Our summer English course will rapidly improve your level of ability in a short amount of time. With a maximum of 16 students per class, you will enjoy learning through exercises focusing on speaking and listening. School teachers are highly qualified and students receive 20 lessons English each week, divided into 4 lessons per day.  There are mixed nationalities in each class. Before start of the course, students will take a placement test to ensure the most effective learning environment. The test includes writing, vocabulary and an oral interview. This allows the school to place you in the right class for your ability level. Classes usually take place in the morning but it is possible that some days there will take place an activity in the morning, and therefore classes will take place in the afternoon.
