Our Methods

We believe communication in English is vital, therefore it is one of the main focuses in our courses. No matter what your level is, English is the only language spoken in class. Even beginners will be using English from the start . Traditional grammar and vocabulary exercises interlock with interesting reading and listening comprehension exercises, pair work, projects, discussions and role-plays.  We encourage the students to take an active part in lessons. You will be expected to participate as much as possible.

You will study with a course book but your teacher will also use other teaching resources in your lessons.  The book may account for only around half of the lesson.  Other resources include self made materials by the teacher, audio CDs, DVDs, magazines and newspapers and extra study materials.

Our levels

There are eight levels in our system, Beginners through to Proficiency. Each level is broken down into an A and B part, and you can expect to study around half a level per course.

You will take a Progress Test in the middle of your course and an end term test, to test your speaking, reading and writing skills. A final grade of A, B or C means you’ve successfully completed the course and can move on to the next level.

After Pre Intermediate level you can chose between General or Business English. We encourage our students to sit for the Cambridge ESOL examinations when they reach the highest levels. For these students we offer exam preparation courses.

Our academic calendar is divided into 4 semesters and students can join a group at any one of these times: Autumn term (from September), Winter term (from January), Spring (from April) and Summer intensive term (from July), each of which includes all levels.
