Students studying General English courses will cover the four main skills of reading, writing, speaking and listening, along with developing their grammar and vocabulary. The focus of all of our General English courses is to develop your communicative abilities and to activate your existing knowledge of English.
English lessons are generally based on everyday topics such as booking a train ticket or hotel room, grocery shopping or giving directions, and are active, task-based and relevant.
Students have the choice of studying in the morning or the afternoon, at levels from Beginner to Advanced. You will be given a level check before enrolment.
