Our General English courses are tailor-made to suit your needs in English be they professional, educational, or social. A general English course may integrate the four Language Skills (Speaking, Writing, Listening and Reading) as required by the student and will include input on the four Language Systems (Vocabulary, Grammar, Pronunciation, and Use of English). Often our General English students wish to focus on their speaking. In this case we put emphasis on communication and interaction. The teacher will then use your spoken production to introduce language points in context. It is also possible to place more emphasis on the other Language Skills such as Listening, Reading, and Writing as appropriate.
Build your English course around your working needs and objectives. Our Business English courses are tailor-made to fit with your professional goals. Focus on improving your productive (speaking, writing) and receptive (listening, reading) skills at work by studying the functional language of business contexts.
English phonology has a challengingly high degree of irregularity. If your aim is to improve your pronunciation, whether to be more clearly understood or to polish your accent, our English Pronunciation course will guide you through and give you ample practice of the phonological features of English.
