About Learning English at Swan

The two teachers you will meet on our General English Intensive Course will give you different experiences to help you get the most out of learning a language. 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. Each week, guided by a general topic, 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. You will have regular progress assessments and feedback, guided by your SELT learning portfolio.
