How We Teach

Our competency-based program focuses on grammar, vocabulary, functions, pronunciation, and critical thinking skills, ensuring that every student's language needs are met during their stay. We believe a relaxed learning environment is the most effective way to improve so we use lots of task-based activities, games and discussions which give our students the chance to use what they learn in real communicative contexts.
Our General English syllabus is based around the common European framework. Our teachers’ resource room is well-stocked with classic and new teaching materials.
We have internet access in all classrooms and interactive whiteboards in some classrooms. Students are assessed informally with weekly quizzes and assignments to gauge grammar, vocabulary, and pronunciation progress. Mid-term and final exams are used to evaluate overall language proficiency. Speaking and listening assessments are carried out based on real-life situations. And there are critical thinking assessments through written essays and discussions.

Activities and Services designed for you...

In addition to the language course, we also offer an interesting social programme and different activities so you can make the most of your stay with us. Participation is free of charge and voluntary.


Conversation Club

Wednesday from 17:00 to 18:30
For all students we organise a Conversation Club once a week which is all about socialising with students while improving your English. We will provide you and the other students with a topic (suggestions are always welcome) that we will all discuss together. A couple of challenges will be set and you will be presented with the main vocabulary relevant to the topic.

Flash Objectives

Mondays in the first lesson
To make your learning as personalised as we can your teacher will ask you to come up with your weekly flash objective. This is an aspect of your learning that you want to focus on for that week. It could be the pronunciation of a particular sound or the mastering of a specific piece of grammar. These are reviewed weekly and make up part of your personal learning plan.

Monthly Tutorial

By appointment
To make sure you are getting the most out of your time with us if you are staying 4 weeks or longer we have monthly one-to-one tutorials where you can spend time with your teacher to evaluate your progress, reflect on your learning and express any concerns you may have with your learning journey. You will need to make an appointment for this service.
