gen eng

Our General English classes are designed to help you improve your ability to use and understand English. These classes incorporate speaking, listening, reading and writing skills; and they will also help you to develop your grammar and vocabulary.

Each course is based on a different coursebook, which changes each term, and also includes a graded reader, appropriate for your level. They cover a wide variety of topics including holidays, food and drink, sport, culture, jobs, transport, and entertainment. We provide certain materials free of charge, depending on the length of your course.

We offer up to seven levels of General English:

  • Preliminary/ A1
  • Pre-Intermediate/ A2/ KET
  • Intermediate/ B1/ PET
  • Upper-Intermediate/ B1 - B2/ FCE
  • Cambridge English First (FCE)/ B2/ FCE
  • Cambridge English Advanced (CAE)/ C1/ CAE
  • Cambridge English Proficiency (CPE)/ C2/ CPE

Our courses use a communicative methodology, meaning there is a strong focus on speaking and listening skills. They are designed to help you develop your fluency and pronunciation to help in many everyday situations as well as improve your ability to listen and understand native English speakers.

At the end of each course, you will be given a test to see if you are ready to move up to the next level. Some students may need more than one term at each level.
