Course Descriptions

These courses give learners instruction in general English at levels appropriate to their language proficiency levels. We aim to improve learners understanding of grammar, increase their vocabulary and improve their listening and speaking skills. General English is offered from elementary to advanced levels to learners from the age of 6 years, and the curriculum is based on high quality textbooks from famous, international ELT publishers. We supplement whenever necessary with extra home-produced teaching materials to meet individual learning needs.

Below is a list of our General English courses and how they roughly align to the proficiency levels in The Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) and correspond with the Cambridge Certificate Exams:
