Courses Overview

Our English language courses include a complete range of adult group courses for all levels, from absolute beginners up to advanced students.  Some of our intermediate and advanced students study for international examinations such as Cambridge ESOL exams, IELTS and TOEFL.

For children and teenagers, our courses use methods and materials especially prepared for their respective ages.

We place a strong emphasis on students’ speaking skills. We also encourage students to tell us if they need any special vocabulary or material for their work or studies.

Course Standards

The English courses follow the standards specified by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. These standards ensure that we can support English Language certifications that ensure that each student has the expected levels of listening, reading, speaking and writing.

Below, we summarise the language ability expected at each level as defined by the CEFL standards.

Types of Courses

We provide a range of English language course types to cover individual, group and business learning requirements.

Private Lessons

Note that although these are for individuals, if you are a couple or there is another friend wanting to learn English at the same time as yourself, we do a 2 for 1 discount.

Group Sessions

These run from October to June and are structured according to the 6 levels of language proficiency in the Council of Europe’s Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.

Summer Schools

All our English summer language courses are held in July (6 lessons a week). The adult course is for beginners and gives students a solid introduction to the language. The courses for children and teenagers have interactive activities and fun ways of communicating.

Tutorial Sessions

They are specifically for school pupils who are possibly struggling with school work, who have a project they need help with or an exam coming up.

Business Courses

We provide tailor made courses for local businesses. Previous courses have included employees of the town hall, restaurants, hotels, banks, architecture companies, hospitals and real estate agencies.

Each course is designed to meet the specific needs of a business.  Therefore, before a course can begin, we will work with you to create a course syllabus that meets your precise requirements.
