Teaching methodology Experienced and well-qualified teaching staff offer a high level of academic support, maintaining an intensive and supportive atmosphere to increase your confidence. Learning happens both inside and outside the classroom, with regular social activities and tutors available every afternoon in the study centre.

The school has small class sizes - with a maximum of 12 students - to ensure individual attention. Teachers help you set achievable goals and continually monitor your progress to ensure you stay motivated and focused.

At the beginning of the day, a starter session brings students together before their class. The teacher-led discussion gives students the opportunity to discuss news and language-based topics as a warm-up before their first class.

In morning classes spoken performance is improved with role plays and presentations to boost your confidence in a variety of real-life situations.

Language and grammar points are introduced to form the foundation of your language ability. Core skills are developed through the use of the controlled practice, exercises and feedback.

There is an intensive focus on extending reading and writing skills. You receive guided practice in different genres and styles of texts and in producing a variety of written pieces.
