Our English for Life courses are designed to improve the language skills you need to communicate in all areas of your life: academic, professional, or just for fun. These courses are designed to the competency of your English at progressive levels by developing the skills of reading, writing, listening and speaking without compromising on grammatical accuracy and vocabulary range.
We have a continuous assessment programme where you will be able to track how well you are progressing on a weekly basis and also be able to identify your weaknesses and develop self-study techniques with the help of your teacher.
To help you improve your English language skills (speaking, listening, reading and writing) and develop your range and accuracy of grammar and vocabulary. By the end of the course you should be able to communicate in English more confidently in different situations. Please refer to our levels for more information.
