Our General English Plus options are designed to allow you to develop your English language and practise and develop a practical skill.
In the mornings you join our core General English programme in mixed nationality classes at your level for 20 lessons per week. Then for 3 afternoons per week you develop your chosen practical skill.
We offer these options throughout the year and you can start any Monday. All of the afternoon Plus options are run by local coaches and trainers so you will also be able to practise your English with local people. The options are organised so that we can run them with a minimum 1 student and they are therefore guaranteed to run.
Our minimum age for individuals is 16, but we occasionally accept 15 year olds on the General English course in international classes provided they are part of a group with a group leader.
