All lessons are 45 minutes long. ETC specifies a maximum class size of 18. However our average class size in off-peak seasons is lower. No classes will exceed 18 students.

Classes may be in the mornings or the afternoons during busy periods.

Students following a Standard General English course (20 lessons per week) may have morning or afternoon lessons. Classes are normally run in the mornings from 8:45am to 12.15pm, but we cannot guarantee this timetable. During the busy summer months, students may have lessons in the afternoons.

Students who require a student visa must complete at least 15 hours of study per week (i.e. 20 lessons per week).
