Language courses

Course starts every Monday and is for all language levels
General English
  • You should be at least 16 years old
  • 15 students per class
  • Lesson 45 minutes

General English will give you a practical understanding of the English language and take you all the way to fluency. See your confidence improve as we train you in all four communication skills: speaking, listening, reading, and writing.

EC's teachers are qualified and experienced. They create dynamic and motivating classes, designed to activate and build upon your strengths, whilst also giving focused attention to your weaker areas. The teachers believe you learn best when you are engaged in discussion and taking a full and active part in lessons. In other words, there will not be a moment when you are not directly involved in the class.

Your teachers are trained to deliver constant support and feedback within a relaxed and informal environment. Their care and encouragement will build your confidence as you progress. In addition to text books, your teachers will refer to authentic resources such as newspapers, videos, the internet and audio recordings. This will give you an understanding of how English is used in real contexts.

A wonderful school and teachers, but the course for me was not very efficient. The only interesting thing was the business classes that took place two times a week. ...
