  • What is the General English course about?

    Being able to express yourself in a new language, even in the most simple situations, can be challenging. Our General English course will provide you with the tools and knowledge to understand and communicate effectively in a wide variety of circumstances.

    By striking a good balance between classroom interactions and structured activities, you will gain confidence while using the English language. Soon enough, you will become more fluent while speaking, listening, reading and writing in English.

    Join our General English course and open the door to a whole new variety of opportunities. Otherwise, if you would like to have more individual support in addition to your group lessons, why not try our General English + 2PT course.
