Our General English courses aim to enable you to communicate effectively in English across borders and cultures by:
- Increasing your confidence and fluency in English, particularly in listening and speaking
- Improving the level of your English through a combination of language input and practice in the skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing
- Developing the study skills that will enable you to continue to learn English after your course.
You will have lots of listening and speaking practice in class and regular homework. We will also give you a test every week and a tutorial every month so that you can measure your progress.
You will have a test on your first day to place you in a class at the right level. Our progress tests and tutorials make sure you move up to a higher level as soon as you are ready.
The levels are:
Elementary (CEFR A1-A2) Can communicate with enough language for basic needs and simple situations.
Pre-Intermediate (CEFR A2) Can communicate with enough language for everyday practical needs.
Intermediate (CEFR B1) Can communicate effectively in most situations but sometimes has to work hard to do so.
Upper Intermediate (CEFR B2) Can communicate effectively in most situations and can usually easily re-phrase in order to be understood.
Advanced (CEFR C1) Can communicate effectively in all but the most difficult situations.
