  Course Description:


Our Closed Group courses are for groups of people who have specific goals and needs, or who want to make particularly rapid progress in English.  Courses can be taken on their own, or in combination with one of our standard or online courses.  The lessons are designed to work on any areas of weakness you have, and to enable you to make rapid progress in the language.  They will help students develop confidence and fluency in their use of English.

Our Closed Group courses are designed to meet your individual needs, and help you achieve your goals and develop the language that you need for work, study or leisure.

We can offer courses in General English, Exam Preparation, Business English or English for Specific Purposes - in fact, anything you want.

We can also offer classes in specific subjects taught in English using a Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) approach

  Course Content:


The classes use a range of methodologies and activities to help students learn and use the language.  The private nature of the classes means that teachers can focus on specific areas to help students make progress as quickly as possible.
