Your Language Course

You’d like to pass the IELTS exam and be very well prepared for it? Our IELTS Preparation Add-On can be booked with our General English Course to give you the perfect combination of confidence and skill for your upcoming IELTS exam. This add-on has to be combined with our General English Course in which our qualified native level teachers help you work on your fluency and accuracy in speaking, writing, listening and reading.
The 10 additional lessons focus on the preparation for the Academic IELTS examination. IELTS is a widely accepted qualification if you need to study at university or work where English is the language of communication. The minimum age for our IELTS add-on is 16 years. Your level of English should be between intermediate and advanced.

During the IELTS Preparation lessons you will:

  • Prepare for the four components of IELTS; Reading, Writing, Listening & Speaking
  • Develop your grammar and pronunciation whilst studying Academic English
  • Acquire strategies and techniques for taking the IELTS examination
  • The course includes IELTS practice papers and sample test materials
  • Expand your Academic English vocabulary
  • Experienced tutors give personal guidance

Please note, the exam fee is not included in the price. The 10 Add-on lessons take place Monday to Friday from 1:45 to 3:15 pm after the General English Course and a lunch break.
If you have to quarantine on arrival you can join our free online / hybrid course, no extra fees!

If you would like to find out your level of English according to the European Framework of Reference for Languages, take our free online test.

How We Teach

Pair work, group work and individual study patterns: We believe a relaxed learning environment is the most effective way to improve so we use lots of games, task-based activities and discussions which gives our students the chance to use what they learn in real communicative contexts.
We have internet access in all classrooms and interactive whiteboards in some classrooms.
Our syllabus is based around the common European framework and we do a book rental system whereby you can pay a small deposit for a book which is returned when you leave.  All other learning materials are provided.  Our teachers’ resource room is well-stocked with classic and new teaching materials.
Homework is given daily to develop on what you do in class and one piece of homework each week is assessed.

Join Our Language Workshops

In addition to your course you can book 2 language workshops of 60 minutes each per week. The price for 2 workshops per week is £19.00 per person. Interested? More info.

Conversation Club

Tuesdays from 15:30 to 17:30
For all students we organise a Conversation Club once a week which is all about socialising with your fellow 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.
free

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.
