Fun and interactive
Our course aims to let students have fun with English! We focus on supporting students in developing their English skills not just in the classroom but in everyday situations to build their confidence in the use of the language. We will cover speaking, listening, reading and writing, as well as vocabulary and grammar through interactions, lessons and teaching.
Learning beyond the classroom
We believe students learn best in welcoming and informal settings. Our programme includes visits to museums and key historical sites across Britain led by our teachers. Through these activities, students can practice their English speaking whilst gaining an appreciation of British culture.
