General English (Intensive) combines morning and afternoon classes.  It is a communicative course balancing the four skills of reading, writing, listening and speaking. 

You will also focus on grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation and aspects of British culture. You will have the opportunity to focus on a range of specific skills in the afternoon classes i.e. academic, business or general English (subject to student demand). 

You are provided with a course book in the morning classes, in addition to authentic materials, such as newspaper articles, documentaries and video. You will engage in meaningful and purposeful activities which will promote your language learning in the context of the classroom and outside it.

Intensive English is a 25-hour course, with both morning and afternoon lessons. Classes run from Monday to Friday.

The course is designed to meet the needs of learners in a variety of situations and aims to bridge the gap between the classroom and the real world. 

You will revise and acquire new vocabulary and develop an awareness of grammatical and phonological aspects of English. 

You will also have the opportunity to broaden your knowledge of English through chosen skill specific subjects (Business, Academic).
