Our General English classes are popular with students looking for an English course to help improve all areas of their English including speaking, listening, reading, writing, vocabulary and grammar.
Teachers follow a textbook for part of the time, but also teach lessons for your specific needs. The questions we ask you in tutorials will help the teacher prepare lessons you prefer and need. You will be given as much homework as you like and a test every two weeks will allow you to see your progress.
