What is the course about?

General English lessons are designed around a course book and provide the opportunity for students to improve the skills of reading, writing, listening and speaking as well as enhancing and increasing their active/working vocabulary and grammar knowledge.

Mini-Group English follows a communicative English syllabus with the advantage of studying in a smaller group.

This course is for students who prefer to study for part of their course in a smaller group and are seeking to improve their communicative skills in everyday situations as well as gain a good  understanding of the principles of the English language.
