Beginner

The general English beginners course is for students learning up to A1 -A2 levels, who want to build their language skills and gain greater confidence in understanding and using everyday language.  The course will help you build your knowledge of English and get a better idea of how the language works. There is an equal focus on all 4 core subjects.

Intermediate

The intermediate general English course is for students learning up to B1 – B2 levels, who wish to gain confidence in the 4 skills: writing, reading, listening and speaking. A key focus of the course will be to introduce students to more authentic texts, so they’re better able to cope with the kind of English they’ll meet outside the classroom.

Advanced

The advanced English course is designed for students learning up to C1 and beyond, who want to improve all 4 skills: writing, reading, listening and speaking. The main focus will be on helping you become more confident at using language in everyday and less familiar settings. Fluency and accuracy will be given equal importance.

Our general English courses are aimed at CEFR levels A1 through to C2.

At the beginning of the course we will start with a small assessment, and what your own personal objectives are. This allows us to set out your realistic goals.

CEFR

logo-cefr

The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages: Learning, Teaching, Assessmentabbreviated in English as CEFR or CEF, is a guideline used to describe achievements of learners of foreign languages across Europe and, increasingly, in other countries.

It was put together by the Council of Europe as the main part of the project “Language Learning for European Citizenship” between 1989 and 1996. Its main aim is to provide a method of learning, teaching and assessing which applies to all languages in Europe.

In November 2001, a European Union Council Resolution recommended using the CEFR to set up systems of validation of language ability. The six reference levels are becoming widely accepted as the European standard for grading an individual’s language proficiency.
