English as a Foreign Language

“We breathe in our first language, and swim in our second.” ‒ Adam Gopnik

We have four different classes, so you will always be with other students with a similar level of English to you. Completion of  a level usually takes 12 weeks full-time (2 hours in the morning and the afternoon).

 

To see which level you belong to, take this online test and send us your results!

Beginner

 

After completing this level, you will be able to:

 

  • Understand and use familiar everyday expressions and very basic phrases aimed at the satisfaction of needs of a concrete type.

  • Introduce yourself and others.

  • Ask and answer questions about personal details such as where you live, what you do, people you know and things you have.

  • Ask and give directions.

  • Order food and drink

  • Make very basic travel and accommodation arrangements.

  • Have a basic conversation, provided the other person talks slowly and clearly and is prepared to help.

Elementary

 

After completing this level, you will be able to:

 

  • Understand sentences and frequently used expressions related to areas including basic personal and family information, shopping, local geography and employment.

  • Communicate in simple and routine tasks, requiring a simple and direct exchange of information on familiar and routine matters

  • Describe, in simple terms, aspects of your background, immediate environment and matters in areas of immediate need.

Upper-Intermediate

 

After completing this level, you will be able to:

 

  • Understand the main ideas of complex text on both concrete and abstract topics, including technical discussions in your field of specialisation.

  • Interact with a degree of fluency and spontaneity that makes regular interaction with native speakers quite possible, without strain for either party.

All our English as a Foreign Language courses are carefully structured to suit your needs, using a number of resources such as the English File (Third Edition) textbooks from Oxford University Press. These books combine fun topic-based lessons and interactive CD-ROMs to deliver successful & enjoyable lessons to get you talking inside (and outside!) the classroom.

 

Our classes are typically 2 hours long. We recommend a minimum of 2 hours per session so we can focus on grammar in the first half, with some speaking practice during a conversation-based lesson in the second hour.

 

You can pick and choose the hours that suit you based around your school/work commitments. Contact us to create your own personalised learning schedule today!
