Our courses follow a teaching programme which is designed to help you to improve your confidence in spoken English whilst developing grammar, listening, reading, writing and vocabulary skills.

After testing you will be placed in an appropriate class and your progress will be checked weekly though a short review.  Our maximum class size is 12 students. At the end of your course you will receive a report, course certificate and take your work home in a folder.

The syllabus also provides a thorough preparation for the Trinity College, London GESE exams and students will sit the exam on their final Friday.
