Our teachers are all native English speakers with university degrees and are fully-qualified in the area of English language teaching. They are all highly experienced and dedicated teachers who will get the best out of each student.
The lessons are centered around a core textbook with plenty of supplementary materials to provide active, stimulating and effective lessons for the students.
Our students feel the 4 hours everyday pass very quickly!
As part of the Intensive English course, the students’ progress is checked regularly in their classes by their teachers. Also, every 6 weeks there is an all-school progress test. Students will be moved up to the next level based on a combination of their classroom performance and the progress tests.
For those students who need more specified English, such as English Exams for College, Immigration Purposes, Business English, etc., we recommend that they combine our morning Intensive English course with afternoon group or private lessons which cover those specific areas. Based on our experience over the years, we believe this is the most effective way for students to get the best results they want and need.
For non-EU/EEA students who require a student visa
The Intensive English course is also the only suitable course for non-EU/EEA students who require a student visa.
Both 16H and 20H options over 25 weeks are sufficient for immigration purposes.
This course will entitle the student to a 35-week student visa (25-week study + 10-week Holiday Period).
Students will be able to work part-time during their 25-week Study Period and full-time during their 10-week Holiday Period.
Currently, student visas are extendable up to 3 terms – in other words, 3 x 8 months with a maximum stay of 24 months altogether.
