General English Classes
All of our programmes include classes in General English which is often called ‘English for Life.’
In these classes you will cover all four language skills – listening, speaking, reading and writing - and you will learn grammar, vocabulary and correct pronunciation through studying topics that are relevant and of interest to today’s young people.
Our enthusiastic and experienced teachers will support you in developing your language skills and your confidence. They use communicative methodology to ensure that students become good listeners and good speakers.
Students are offered 15 hours of General English per week at all levels, beginner to advanced.
The 15-hour programme is taught between 9.30 a.m. and 1.00 p.m. each morning, Monday to Friday.
This can be combined with afternoon classes from 2.00 p.m. – 4.15 p.m. which focus on IELTS preparation or afternoon work experience.
For groups we offer English Plus programmes in which morning classes are combined with a special interest activity.
We assess each student on entry with an oral and written placement test, ensure that students are taught at the correct level, have regular assessments, and support students both in school and out.
Our Director of Studies and our teachers are qualified and experienced teachers who understand the needs of language learners.
On completion of their course, all students receive a certificate.
Lessons are full hours with 15-minute breaks in between lessons.
Our maximum class size is 12 students, though the average class size is less than this.
