Course Content

All our lessons give students the opportunity to learn and use English in realistic situations, and our teachers give regular homework to help them practice. The courses are designed to teach students the language skills they need for a career in their sector. In addition, students work on projects, which can be related to their job or based on work within their classes. Students are given support and assistance to research subjects in English, and they then use this research to give presentations, write reports or hold negotiations and meetings in the school. 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.

Please contact the school for further information about specific courses.
