Our General English courses are suitable for anyone, from beginner to advanced level. If you want to improve your English for academic, personal or professional use, whatever your reasons, we have a course for you.
Choose the intensity of study to suit your needs. We offer a standard course, which is primarily designed to develop the four skills of speaking, writing, reading and listening, and to increase your awareness of how English works. You will also learn and revise new vocabulary, improve your pronunciation and polish your English grammar!
You can take more intense course options, which include extra lessons concentrating on communication skills, such as speaking and listening.
Whichever course you decide to take, you will follow the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference) throughout your lessons to track your learning. The CEFR is a good tool in enabling you to explain your language level to employers, friends and educational institutions around the world. Read more about the CEFR and how it can help your English learning journey.
