The Course

Your individual lessons will be taught by a skilled and experienced teacher and the content will be designed following your own needs and requests so you can achieve your personal goals very fast.
These courses are very popular with students who attend school for a few weeks only and wish to achieve maximum progress but they are also a popular option as part of a longer-term enrolment in an intensive course, for example by enrolling in a 10-week Intensive Academic English course followed by a 4-week Premium Academic English course.

Focus on

  • Business English for a particular job
  • Exam skills for an upcoming exam
  • Fluency skills
  • Writing skills
  • Exam preparation
  • Choose from: Premium English, Premium Academic English and Premium English for Business
