General English Courses


In these courses, you will improve your speaking, reading, listening and writing skills, using textbooks and other material carefully chosen by our teaching stuff. We use cassettes, CDs, and videos, and we also place a great deal of emphasis on using the most up to date computer resources. You can have full access to our CD ROMs collection. We produce these resources to give you the opportunity to practise outside, as well as inside the classroom. Our communicative approach ensures that all students, even beginners, take an active part in all lessons.

The courses build on each other, so you can start at the level suited your ability and work your way up.

You will sit for a placement test to determine which level is best for you.
