Course description:

The lessons focus on improving your general English and exam skills, getting you to the level needed to pass the exam papers. You will attend general English classes in the morning (15 hours per week) and exam preparation lessons three afternoons (9 hours per week).

The exam preparation lessons are based around topical issues and current affairs, while at the same time working on your vocabulary, grammar, syntax and oral skills. Our teachers will also prepare you for the techniques required to pass the exam papers and you will also be given real exam papers to work on. Each student will have regular mock exams with detailed feedback provided by the teacher.

  • Improve on accent, pronunciation and intonation
  • Develop the skills needed to answer exam questions

"Every teacher showed interest in what they're doing.  They always answered my questions and explained things I hadn't understood.  I had two very nice weeks and I enjoyed my time here."
