Our Upper Intermediate level courses are for people with a good level of English who want to make further progress in the language. Typical learners at this level are able to use the main structures of the language with some confidence and have a wide range of vocabulary. They can adapt their language to a variety of situations, and they do not rely on fixed patterns of language or short, simple utterances. However, they may have trouble with some unfamiliar subject areas, and lack control over longer, more complex language.
The classes from 09:00 - 11:30 and 14:00 - 16:30 focus on all aspects of the language, including grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, speaking, listening, reading and writing.
The lessons from 11:45 - 12:30 and 13:00 - 13:45 build on the language from these 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.
