General English Course

A perfect course for students who wish to improve their ability to communicate with people in everyday situations.

Our qualified, carefully selected and dedicated teachers plan their English lessons with individual students’ needs in mind and deliver lessons focussing on all aspects of language, including vocabulary, grammar, pronunciation, reading, writing, speaking and listening.

There is a strong focus on fluency and effective communication, and a major part of this General English course is activating the passive knowledge that many students already have. This means that a short course of even one week is beneficial.

Please see the CEFR Levels for what the average student can do upon successful completion of a 10-12 week General English course at Pre-intermediate (A2), B1, B2, C1 and C2 levels.
