General English (For all levels)
General English is the perfect course for students who wish to improve their communication. That is, talking with people over a wide range of topics and everyday situations. Our General English courses are suitable for students over the age of 16 who would like to improve their use of English. Students can do this whilst living, studying or working in the United Kingdom.
A typical general English class would cover all aspects of English. This, generally, includes grammar, speaking, reading, writing and listening. The maximum number of students in each class is 16 but, on average, there are about 8-10 students per class.
Most importantly, you have our teachers’ care about your progress. Upon arrival, students are tested and placed into the appropriate level. Additionally, on the first day, students will discuss goals with our partners the Director of Studies. Thereafter, students will do a test every five weeks and discuss their progress with their teacher.

Or, if you need to take an exam, you can prepare for IELTS or Cambridge Exams, too.
