General English Courses
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, 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 the Director of Studies. Thereafter, students will do a test every five weeks and discuss their progress with their teacher.
General English Combinations
If you would like to focus on specific areas to improve, you can combine your general English classes with a Booster Class. Booster Classes are personalised and can be very useful. You can choose your Booster classes and prioritise them based on the needs identified by you and your teacher. Therefore, if you feel that your pronunciation is a weakness, you can add a Pronunciation Booster to your Standard course to help you improve in this area.
Our Booster classes are offered every day. You can choose one or two Booster classes to help you succeed in achieving your goal and meeting your needs quickly and effectively.
Similarly, you can study a more intensive schedule and potentially combine General English with other courses such as Business English, Exam Preparation courses or English for Specific Purposes. Or, if you prefer to relax a little you can combine our General English Courses with a Creative workshop which will ensure that you practice the vocabulary you learn outside of the classroom.
