Courses

We offer a selection of courses, with programmes which are perfectly tailored to make sure every one of our students gets the most out of their stay in England. Lessons focus on speaking, with optional reading and written homework to be completed after class.

Our teachers have university degrees and are qualified English language teachers. Our Director of Studies is Fiona Cullen BA Hons, PGCE TEFL, MA Linguistics. She is also an author for Cornelsen Schulverlage (the main German educational publisher). You can see her work on their website, here.

During the summer we offer a vacation course for juniors aged 14 - 18. The students are fully-occupied all day every day. The course includes 3 hours of lessons and afternoon and evening activities every weekday, weekend excursions and host family accommodation.

Our summer course is the perfect opportunity for young students to fully immerse themselves in English language and culture, and many of our summer students return year after year, building lasting relationships with their host families, our teachers and the other foreign students on the course.

The summer 2018 course will run from Sunday 8th July to Saturday 28th July.
Students can come for 1, 2 or 3 weeks.

We offer courses in General English for Adults and English for Specific Purposes for both one-to-one students and closed groups. These are normally intensive courses, i.e. at least four hours of tuition a day (one hour = 60 minutes). The specific purposes that are the most popular are:
 
  • Business English Courses
    We offer Business English tuition designed to suit your particular company. The course is normally topic-based, with the grammar, pronunciation and vocabulary being taught and practised  around the topic. Topics depend on your needs, but may include: Management Styles, Brands and Branding, Team Building, Financial Performance, Internet Security, Negotiating, Assertiveness, Networking, Business Writing and Competition.
  • English for Lawyers
    We offer courses in English for Lawyers designed to suit your particular company. The course is normally topic-based, with the grammar, pronunciation and vocabulary being taught and practised  around the topic. Topics depend on your needs. For example, if you need English for Corporate/ Company Law the topics could include Alternative Dispute Resolution, Insolvency and Winding Up, Mergers and  Acquisitions, and Contract Writing. To take another example, if you need English for Intellectual Property Law, topics could include Copyright and Patent, Trademarks, Domain Names and Remedies for IP Infringement, Information Technology Law and Cyber Crime.
