General English Course
A course in everyday communication for foreign and second language speakers.
For students learning English as a foreign or second language we offer group classes, one-to-one tuition or a combination of both.
All students receive an English language placement test on arrival to establish the learner’s current language level. For beginners who speak very little English, we recommend taking some one-to-one classes to expedite learning the basics, before proceeding to the group setting.
Our General English group classes are small (2-6 students), giving all learners plenty of teacher-time and practice. Classes focus on learner needs – we don’t rely solely on text books, although they are used for reference.
Classes are engaging and fun and keep learners stimulated by teaching the English language in a variety of contexts. Themes are chosen to appeal to the age group and interests of the class, with new and relevant topics presented daily. Learning is further backed up with outings and activities with real opportunities to become immersed and engaged in the English language.
General English is offered at all levels – beginner, elementary, pre-intermediate, intermediate and advanced. There are 3 options:
- GE standard – 20 lessons per week – morning* only, group class
- GE intensive 1 – 20* lessons – morning*, plus 5 hours of 1-to-1 private classes – afternoon**
- GE intensive 2 – 20* lessons – morning*, plus 10 hours of 1-to-1 private classes – afternoon**
*Morning classes are divided into 2 main sessions of 90 minutes, separated by a break - each session consists of two 45-minute lessons
**If opting for GE intensive 1 or 2 you will also have classes in the afternoon. These classes provide dedicated assistance, helping you reach your potential in the shortest possible timeframe. Afternoon sessions are divided into 1-hour lessons
