A communicative English language course balancing the four skills of reading, writing, listening and speaking, as well as focusing on grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation and aspects of British culture. The classes are personalised and engaging, with a clear focus on meaningful and developmental activities which promote language learning in the context of the classroom and beyond. We take a task-based approach, working to clear, measurable goals. We teach problem-solving skills and learning strategies, so that you can continue to learn outside the classroom. Courses are flexible and respond to your individual needs and difficulties.
All students take a placement test on the first day of the course, followed by regular progress tests. Teachers give continuous feedback on students’ progress. There are regular one-to-one tutorials which give students the opportunity to revise their learning goals and discuss their strengths and areas for improvement.
For this course, we have a maximum class size of 15. This allows students to benefit from a personalised and interactive learning environment.
