Classes



At the centre we’ll evaluate your ability in English.



Each working day you can attend 3, one hour, classes: Conversation; Comprehension; and General English. Small tutorial groups make it easy and enjoyable to learn quickly.



The afternoon session is devoted to a (2 hour) lecture programme and a (1 hour) seminar on: analysing & eliminating mistakes, preparation of future examinations and evaluative testing.



Our teaching methods are varied, modern and adapted to differing ability levels. The linguistic programme is very complete and coursework is linked to the you daily experiences in London to make learning easier and more enjoyable.



COURSE OBJECTIVES

Comprehension

Advanced

You will analyse the subtleties of the language as it is written and spoken and study the full range of language skills used by native English speakers.



Intermediate

This class will improve your capacity to understand written and spoken language. It will give you the confidence necessary to hold a conversation with others.



Elementary

Comprehension and expression are the two fundamentals of any language. We’ll help you to understand a person speaking English at normal speed and improve your ability to read a simple text. This will give you a good basis on which to develop more complex language skills.



Conversation

Advanced

Obviously you want to speak English fluently, effectively and without mistakes. We’ll consider a wide variety of subjects, designed to stimulate your interest. and make you feel comfortable expressing yourself in any situation. Experience has shown that this technique often produces results which surpass the expectations of our very demanding teachers.



Intermediate

You’ll use all the natural advantages of studying a language in its country of origin to improve your oral expression, develop your vocabulary and refine your pronunciation. Our very complete and varied programme, makes the learning process simpler and more pleasurable.



Elementary

Conversation, like comprehension, is an essential skill. Naturally it is just as important and our teachers are always aware of how individual needs can vary. We’ll help you to have the confidence to use the new vocabulary and to progress quickly, by building on the new skills that you learn everyday.


General English

Advanced

At this level a good understanding of grammar is assumed and the programme concentrates on the diverse usage of language. We’ll examine how written expression differs according to the context in which it is used and study the use of idioms and metaphors, which have such an important role in English.



Intermediate

Here we aim to improve your syntax, build on your existing understanding of grammatical structures and refine your capacity to communicate in English. This class is designed to make your writing skills creative and precise.



Elementary

Nothing can replace a good grasp of basic principles and we pay very special attention to individual difficulties. Our teachers do not give classes at a uniform speed and simply assume that everyone can follow. They are very aware of the needs of beginners and deliberately cultivate an atmosphere in which you will not be afraid to say “I don’t understand”.



At the end of the course a certificate will be issued to students who have completed the programme. This may be a useful support for future job applications.
