General English Adults

General English Courses aim to improve your English, build your confidence and fluency in speaking, writing, reading and listening while also building grammar and vocabulary understanding and usage.

 

During the course you:

  • improve your fluency and accuracy, so that you speak better and more correctly
  • improve your pronunciation, so that your accent sounds more natural
  • practise your listening skills, as you will have to listen to recordings of native speakers
  • have a lot of opportunities to speak/ communicate
  • expand your vocabulary and learn new phrases
  • watch some authentic videos
  • test your knowledge

 

Methodology

 

We use The Communicative Approach, which is the most contemporary and popular all over the world. All lessons are in English and the emphasis is on real meaningful communication, that’s why there’s more focus on skills work, student-centred activities and use of authentic materials in classes.

 

Teachers

 

All our teachers are highly qualified, they all have CELTA (Cambridge Certificate in Teaching English) or Delta (Cambridge Diploma). All our teachers take part in ongoing teacher development, which means they are constantly updating their teaching skills and learning the latest methods to ensure language-learning success.

 

We employ highly experienced local teachers or professional native-speaker teachers from different backgrounds and different countries.
