Enjoy making fast progress in your English skills.

Programme Details

We do things differently in our classrooms, using a blend of the latest technology with traditional language learning methods, and we base our lessons on you and your interests. The teachers on our General English Morning Course will help you to speak English better and will help you to feel more confident when you are using English outside the classroom. Each week you practise speaking, listening, reading and writing skills in a warm and friendly environment. The lessons start with clear weekly goals, and include a monthly one-to-one session with your teacher to work on your own individual learning plan.  TIE exam prep is an integral part of the course and anyone can go on to take a TIE exam after their time with us here.

You will have regular progress assessments and feedback, guided by your SELT learning portfolio. Our thoroughly researched syllabus, up to date teaching materials, and excellent teaching methods ensures all students will make fast progress. Our course books are based on the latest research into English as it is really used in everyday situations. Our teachers make extensive use of our interactive, touch-screen SmartBoards so that all classes have a digital component connected with the topic, vocabulary and grammar.
