Depending on your goals and needs we can offer live lessons and online courses with focus on:

  • General English
  • Examination Preparation (IELTS, FCE, CAE, CPE, TOEIC, or BULATS)
  • Business English
  • English For Specific Purposes
    (Care, Medicine, Aviation, Information Technology).

Flexible Timetable

You can choose to take as many or as few lessons per week as your availability allows and your language goals require.  As a general guideline, we would recommend three contact sessions per week, for an hour or an hour and a half each.   

We would also recommend allowing at least a day between lessons to allow enough time for self-study, homework, practice, revision and to review the feedback notes.

Some students prefer to book all hours in one week for an intensive package where as others with less time available to them book their classes over more weeks.
