General English courses
Main Programme - 20 lessons per week over 5 mornings. This is a course book based General English course, covering all four skills - listening, speaking, reading and writing, as well as expanding your knowledge of vocabulary and grammar. We use a variety of the best textbooks and supplementary materials in order to build your confidence in your use of the English language.
Authentic - 28 lessons per week over 5 mornings and 4 afternoons. This is a skills based course (listening, speaking, reading and writing), which consists of 20 General English lessons and 8 more practical lessons, using primarily authentic materials such as newspapers, magazines, literature, video, radio and film. It is a particularly interesting and dynamic way of improving your communicative ability as well as your knowledge of British life and culture.
If your aim is to improve your career prospects or enter a British university, look no further than our Examination programmes. These are 10-week preparation courses for all Cambridge exams (KET, PET, FCE, CAE, CPE and BEC) and IELTS.
The aim of the Examination programme is to familiarise you with all exam components and to give practice in exam skills. Examination programmes are coursebook-based, however, there is a wide range of supplementary materials available in our Self-study centre. All students will have the opportunity to do a mock exam, usually around week 8. The actual exams are taken locally and are timed to take place immediately after the course has finished.
If you need to use English in business, this course will help you develop the necessary language for meetings, presentations, telephoning, and other professional activities allowing you to take part in international business with more confidence.
Business English is a negotiated tailor-made course. Students are asked to give brief details in advance of when and why they need to use English. This is followed with a detailed needs analysis on the first day. This information is used by the business teacher to prepare a suitable programme and is reviewed regularly during the course so that classes can be adapted to students' changing needs.
Students must be of an Intermediate standard to take this course. However, we offer courses for lower levels if we are informed in advance. We can also arrange visits to local companies, if required.
