We offer the intensive course at 8 different levels. The entrance test determines your level of English and the class you will be in. The lessons focus on listening, reading, writing and most importantly speaking. During the classes in the afternoon of the 30 hours course, extra attention is paid to a specific subject as vocabulary,  fluency, conjugating verbs or DELF-preparation.
