English for Communication (12 hours per week)

This part of the course will help you to communicate more effectively in English. You will be taught in small groups of no more than 15 students. Small group teaching means that you will get lots of individual attention from your teacher helping you progress faster.  We believe in helping your to use the language rather than learning about it so that you can make the most of your time in the UK.
