General language course

During the lessons you will develop communication skills which will prove useful in a wide range of everyday situations.

The lessons involve grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation while providing the necessary base not only for communication but also for reading and writing skill.

We use a wide range of resources and exercises such as role-plays, recordings of authentic interactions, newspaper and magazine articles.

This course is ideal for those who would like to study intensively while learning the language through a discovery of its culture.


Conversation sessions

Are you taking or have you already taken language lessons and would now like just a few hours of oral practice to keep your knowledge up-to-date ?

You and your teacher will discuss everyday topics, giving you the chance to apply your grammatical knowledge and vocabulary with confidence. Your teacher will encourage conversation focusing on fluency and the use of appropriate language in context.

Lunch with your teacher

Having breakfast or lunch with your teacher is your chance to put all you have learned into practice, outside of the classroom.

You will find yourself in a natural social setting, in an environment where you will have the opportunity to chat with ease and improve your fluency. Whilst enjoying your meal and conversation your teacher will keep an eye on your use of language.
