ENGLISH LANGUAGE COURSES FOR ADULTS
Are you looking to build your English language confidence, learn to communicate in different contexts and situations or learn more focused vocabulary and improve an area of your language learning? That is great!
Immersing yourself in the English language and culture is the most effective way to learn the language. It is also by far the most natural, easier and faster way to master English as a second language. In fact, you learn 7 times faster by actively using the language in a class.
By learning in our classrooms using traditional teaching methods you will learn to speak, understand, read and write like an Englishman; whether for work, studies or just your hobbies and travel, we will help you become confident in all your language abitilies.
You will develop your grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, idioms as well as colloquial language. We aim to improve your confidence and fluency in English language understanding and speaking and teach you the techniques to help you progress daily with just a few simple tools.
And if you are aiming to pass IELTS, Cambridge Certificate or another English language exam successfully, our native English teachers with many years of experience under their belts will make sure that you maintain our outstanding record of the best achieving students in exams in our area.
Class size between 3 and 16 persons - our classes are divided by the level of English as well as the learning goals, therefore the class size can vary between 3 to 16, average for morning classes is 10 students per class / afternoon class size is 6, making it a perfect size; small enough to receive full attention of your teacher but big enough for you to have an opportunity to converse, discuss and interact
Courses start every Monday - join the classes when it suits your life and work schedule, we are here for you all year around (* closed for two weeks at Christmas)
Choose the format that suits you and your needs - we have the perfect solution for you: a choice of General English Course of 20 lessons per week, General Intensive English Course of 29 lessons per week, and additional one to one lessons in discounted packages of 5 or 10 (on their own or as an extra and in combination with any of our courses).
Part time, full time - for those students unable to commit their time to full time studies, a convenient part time option is available. Due to the academic nature of the course, we recommend 2 mornings per week as a minimum (*part time option is not available during the summer).
Your goals, your content - to ensure your academic goals are met we will ask you to complete a check list and a content form at the time of booking.
Different testing methods - initially you will be included in a class based on the result of a short comprehension and grammar test, followed by a more detailed assessment of your language abilities by the teacher during your first classes.
Easy integration into your surroundings - a warm and informative welcome and induction given by a member of staff while you wait for your test to be corrected. We want you to feel comfortable from the very first moment you join us.
No waste of your time - unlike many other schools' practices with us you will start your lessons on your first day. The testing takes place at 08.00 on your first day to make sure we know your level before the lessons start at 09.30.
International classes - practice your English, communicate, interact and discuss topics with other students from different parts of the world.
Regular progress check and one to one consultation with your teacher - we are here to help you achieve your academic goals and ensure you are happy with the direction of your studies
Homework and self-study guidance - in the true sense of 'practice makes perfect' your teacher will ensure that you have the tools to fully comprehend what you learnt (*should you choose to)
All course material is provided - to ensure that we meet your learning goals we have a wide range of the most up to date material available and provide you with everything that you need, there is no need to purchase a book with us. Our teachers use a mix of different formats and methods to ensure your learning style is catered for. Extra material is always available on request.
Suitable for all levels of English - our courses cater for different levels of existing English, so you do not need to worry about finding yourself struggling or being under-challenged. Please enquiry about beginners level before booking.
Opportunities to practice - learning comes naturally in an environment where you are surrounded by constant situations inspiring communication in English, from your communication with your hosts, teachers, staff, other students in the class and outside your class.
