Intensive English Course - From Elementary to Advanced

Improve your overall level of English, whether you are learning for your job, for travel, for your studies or for pleasure.


Our Intensive English course is designed to improve your overall level of English to make you more confident, fluent and able to communicate in different life and work situations. Grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation are presented in meaningful and enjoyable ways, and the teaching programme is designed to improve all four language skills: speaking, listening, reading and writing. The teachers will also help you with your pronunciation.

Monitoring your progress

We evaluate your level of English at the start of your course to understand your individual needs. We monitor your progress through continuous assessment, regular progress tests, as well as regular tutorials. At the end of your stay you will receive a personal report and certificate confirming your final level and the progress you have made. Your teachers can also advise you on whether you should think about doing an exam preparation course.


You will improve your accuracy and fluency in English as well as your confidence in using the language in social, travel and general work situations.
