Our academic courses are communication focused. They will allow you to achieve fluency and general ability quickly. You’ll learn a language properly, focusing on real communication. You’ll interact a lot with your teacher and classmates! You choose the length of your course as you renew on a monthly basis until you have met your objectives.
Those who can best say what it means to learn with us are our students. They’re the ones who’ve experienced things for themselves!

We aim for a close student-teacher relationship to boost comfort and confidence levels in class, maximising pupils’ participation and growth.
We place importance on communication skills in all our extended courses so that students practise speaking and listening directly in the target language as much as possible, training their ear to native accents and learning correct pronunciation.
We encourage them to engage in class discussions and debates as much as possible on a range of relevant topics, and will set different oral tasks for them to complete. Pupils will listen to and watch both formal and informal recordings and videos to improve their skills and practise the grammar and vocabulary appropriate to their level.
Our approach to teaching grammar is to break down each point and make it universally comprehensible without overwhelming or boring our students.
We explain vocabulary using clear lists, definitions and examples, with practical and fun exercises, to test pupils’ assimilation.
Reading tasks will further check this assimilation, and students will complete exercises to assess their comprehension of the text, discussing it orally in more detail.
Written expression practises pupils’ usage of grammar and vocabulary, and will be mainly set for homework. Our teachers will explain how to organise texts in class, giving students a variety of examples and templates they can base their work on.
The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) is an international standard for referring to language ability. It defines language skill on a six-point scale, from A1 for beginners, up to C2 for those who have complete control of a language. Detailed below are the specific abilities of pupils who reach levels A1-C2 in any of the languages offered.
