ENGLISH LESSONS

ENGLISH LESSONS

The first college I have ever been to where the English lessons are really useful.

RODOLFO FROM ITALY

Our programme provides 22 hours of English lessons each week during which students are divided by age into juniors and seniors.

Our well qualified and very experienced teachers use a wide variety of teaching methods to provide the best tuition and promote understanding.

Students undertake a placement test on arrival and are allocated to the most appropriate class for their ability. Once the students have been placed into their classes they study English through different weekly themes; this takes place both inside and outside the classroom. By providing a structured focus to these themes, the learning of grammar, speaking, listening and reading as well as general comprehension is promoted. Students are also exposed to British culture at the same time.

Throughout the course teachers monitor each student’s progress and provide individual assistance. Every student receives a full academic report and certificate at the end of the course. This contains their teacher’s recommendations on how to continue improving their English once they return home along with comments from their Houseparent and the Course Director.
