General English Courses

General English courses are for adults who want to work in a small group. Improve your speaking and listening in English for work, travel or fun.

A small group with only 5 students or fewer means you can practise English conversation naturally and participate fully in every activity. Small groups give you more time to speak and opportunity to build your confidence.
