General English Courses

Our 30+ course are suitable for anyone, from pre-intermediate to advanced level, improving your English for academic, personal or professional use.

You will also learn and revise new vocabulary, improve your pronunciation and polish your English grammar.

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.

You will find that they are supportive guides in the learning process. Our teachers are constantly developing and discussing new ideas. Everyone’s learning style is different. Our teachers develop lesson plans with this in mind and pack classes full of interactive activities to aid your learning.
