Our Advanced level courses are for people with a high level of English who want to make further progress in the language. Typical learners at this level are able to use the language easily and fluently, and are aware of the relationship between language and culture, and of the significance of register. They are therefore able to adapt their language to a variety of situations and can use English in a creative and flexible way, and can respond appropriately to unexpected and unusual situations. However, they may have trouble with particularly complex situations, and responding to multiple sources of information on unfamiliar topics.
The core classes focus on all aspects of the language, including grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, speaking, listening, reading and writing.
The elective classes build on the language from the core classes, with a focus on communication and practical skills.
All our lessons give students the opportunity to learn and use English in realistic situations, and our teachers give regular homework to help you practice.
The classes use a range of methodologies and activities to help students learn and use the language. The classes use a set coursebook, and these are supplemented with authentic materials, video and interactive technology.
There are regular progress tests and tutorials, which helps the teachers identify students’ strengths and weakness, and allows the students to check their progress in English.
