EFL students will take classes alongside ESOL students, meaning you will benefit from mixed classes with students from various countries but with a shared goal to improve your English.

Specialised options include: Academic English, Speaking & Listening, IELTS Exam Preparation, English for Specific Purposes (e.g. English for Medicine, English for Technology, English for Business, English for IT) and English with a specialist subject (for example, English and Business Administration, English and IT or English and Business Management.

These classes develop independent learning skills, analytical and critical thinking, academic communication, confidence in using English in your field and strategies for entry to Higher Education or employment.

Suitability - Who should attend?

Learners who wish to improve their level of English. Minimum age is 14 years for groups with team leaders. Minimum age is 16 years for individuals.
