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.

Exam Preparation Courses (IELTS, TOEFL, TOEC, etc.

The IELTS (International English Language Testing System) Preparation course equips students with the appropriate knowledge for the IELTS exam in order to achieve their required score. IELTS is often required for university entrance in the United Kingdom. Therefore, depending on your desired university course, your university might require a minimum score to allow you entrance. IELTS is one of the most popular English Exam preparation courses. However, please note that it has expiry term of 2 years.
