This is subject to you completing all homework and class assignments and your full attendance to lessons.
To give an engaging and relevant framework to learning these skills, each lesson will focus on a specific topic, which will vary from current affairs to everyday issues. Your professional and friendly teachers will select topics that create interest, discussion and debate in the class.
This means as you engage with the language, you will also learn a lot about your classmates and different cultures around the world, all within an English context! As well as taking an active part in classroom discussions, you will work on your language skills in small groups, pairs or individually on tasks and projects. As you learn correct English pronunciation, increase your vocabulary, work on your grammar and improve your sentence construction, you will find you become able to express yourself in an accurate and appropriate way.
