Our general English courses (GEGC) provide students with a comprehensive language development program. Students are given situational and functional language practice, which focuses on all the four language skills. Imaginative interactive classroom activities provide the opportunity for you to practice grammatical structures and use new vocabulary in real-life situations. The Owner also provides you with an understanding of colloquial English, phrasal verbs, idioms and social English.

Our aim is for you to improve your English communication for variety of English language environments. You will receive personal attention from your teacher with the content of your course adapted to suit the particular needs and interests of your group. This "student-centered" approach to teaching also takes into account your individual learning style.

In class, you will often be asked to work in pairs or small groups to maximize your English speaking practice. Teachers and students take their studies seriously and work very hard, but you will also have a lot of fun in class.

Areas practiced are:
- Speaking. The aim of speaking lessons is to increase your fluency and confidence through discussion, role-play and group or individual presentations. The aim is to enable you to talk about a wide variety of topics and make use of new vocabulary and expressions.
- Listening. In listening classes you will improve your understanding of spoken English from a variety of different contexts. The school's teachers use materials that present a range of accents and speaking scenarios. You will be given a variety of authentic tasks used to improve your listening for gist and specific information skills.
- Reading. Here you will have the chance to learn a lot of new words and expressions in context. Skimming, scanning and predicting are also emphasized here, along with strategies for dealing with the new vocabulary. We choose texts which vary progressively in terms of level, style, purpose and the amount of information contained.
- Writing. You will be given training in writing for a number of purposes, and a balance of personal and impersonal styles and topics are selected. You will receive guidance in constructing different texts from individual sentences to compositions.
