General English course – intensive one-to-one tuition

One-to-one home tuition is an extremely effective way to develop your language skills in a short period of time. You will be impressed at just how quickly your confidence grows as your English language skills improve, when you’re immersed in real-life situations and interactions within our friendly environment.

You can choose to have 15, 20, 25 or 30 lessons per week with your teacher, Joan (each lesson lasts 60 minutes). In addition, you will be given between one and two hours’ work each day to prepare for the next day’s lessons.

On the first day, you will be given a level assessment, a listening comprehension and your oral fluency will be assessed.  Joan will then design a Personal Study Plan with you to fulfil your objectives by making the most effective use of your lesson time. Out of lessons you will have the opportunity to practise what you have learnt.
