General English Courses

We offer a range of popular General English courses suitable for CEFR levels from A1 to C1. The courses incorporate a variety of age and level appropriate topics. Every lesson is packed with relevant and engaging activities designed to get students talking to each other in English.

At the lowest levels there is an emphasis on the development of basic vocabulary and functional language to help develop an initial confidence. As students extend their knowledge of the language, there is a shift towards the development of fluency with competitive games and simulations. From here the courses start to focus on freer language practice, with discussions and problem solving. Higher level students have a chance to develop more advanced vocabulary, with more cultural input and presentation work.

All courses are structured in a way that allows us to adapt them to your needs. Whether through incorporating specific topics and language, or through tailoring the project and show elements, we are always happy to adapt the course to your needs.
