COURSE: GENERAL ENGLISH
20 lessons per week (a total of 15 hours)
1 lesson = 45 minutes

  • The course will help improve English language skills by focusing on the key areas: reading, writing, speaking and listening. A strong focus is placed on speech and using the language confidently and fluently.
  • Lessons are engaging and designed especially for young learners. Teachers aim to satisfy any interest, with a focus on communication to boost students' confidence when using English in practical situations. Regular tests and conversation classes help to ensure that students improve their English as much as possible.
  • Our dedicated and professional teaching staff provide feedback and support and help students build confidence to speak English.
  • All lessons and activities work together.Each week covers a different theme and what's learnt in class is linked with activities outside of the classroom. That means learners get to use and practise their skills every single day!
  • If the school is busy, EC will utilise a Double Banking timetable. Put simply, students attend morning sessions of classes one week, the next week they attend afternoon sessions.
