Learn English for everyday life with LAL

Our everyday English courses are designed to give a good grounding in relevant, modern English, and to give confidence and ability in a wide range of day-to-day situations.

Our Methodology

English lessons are at the heart of our business, and we have an extensive experience in teaching English as a foreign language. Our teachers are skilled at tailoring our lessons to make them engaging and dynamic while meeting the needs of each student.

  • We use a combination of traditional and modern teaching methods and a variety of teaching styles.

  • We use a structured approach with systematic recycling and regular progress testing.

  • We have a comprehensive language syllabus with a strong communicative element which will extend and consolidate your language awareness and vocabulary.

  • We include an eclectic mix of tasks and activities carefully selected to match the needs and suit the learning styles of the individuals in the group.

  • We help students to develop skills and strategies which will enable the student to take responsibility for their own learning and achieve independence beyond the classroom.

  • The best way to learn English is to speak only English, so it is our policy to insist that everyone always speaks English in the classroom and around the school, except for emergencies or beginner students.

The  experience

We know that when you travel abroad to learn English, you want not only the be teaching, you want a really great experience as well.
