General English


Rather than look at what you have done in the past, we look at what you know now, or more specifically, what you can do. We use a wide range of material – from various course books to authentic material – to make our classes as engaging and relevant to you as possible.

The General English course operates on continuous enrolment which allows for students to join our classes on any Monday. All students are assessed prior to starting their course and are placed according to their language ability.

We use the Common European Framework as a basis for our levels combined with levels outlined by IH World. For example, A2 is divided into two levels, level 2/Elementary and level 3/ Pre Intermediate.

Once placed, our aim is to develop your language ability in order to advance to the next level. (e.g a strong B1 student may move to B2 level depending on their individual progress and ability).

There is no set length of time spent in one level, but we estimate that an average learner will take ten weeks to move from one to the next. We assess you based on your own individual strengths and weaknesses, and we recognise that everybody develops at their own pace.

Registration, classes, level test, all course materials, certificates, programme of social and cultural activities, student card, access to all school facilities are all included in your course fees. Entrance fees and any transport for optional social programme activities are extra, although many activities are free.
