On arrival, students are assessed by ability and then placed in an appropriate class of approximately 12-15 students. The teaching programme provides 15 or 21 hours of English lessons** and make use of a variety of teaching techniques to ensure that the learning process is an enjoyable one and to develop confidence in the use of the language, written as well as oral. At the end of the course, each student receives a certificate to mark the progress they have made.

This course is carefully designed to help you become better at communicating naturally and confidently in English. Carefully designed workbooks have been designed specifically for each level of English and are therefore unique in terms of educational content. We hope this will help you also practice listening, reading and writing. You will learn lots of good study skills so you can continue to improve your English quickly, even after the course ends.

You will or may work with other students from different countries or even local students on a variety of projects, all the time using English. We are different from other schools as we not only have international students in our classes from all over the world, but we also have local students attend our summer schools so that students get to mix with local students both in class and social environments. Being of the same age, students will be able to socialise and develop their language skills further.
