English and Private Lessons

General English + Private Lessons offer you the chance to study 3 hours of English in the morning in a group class and either one private lesson (PR5) or two private lessons (PR10) in the afternoon on a subject of your choice:

Lesson CIE Oxford Academic Year
Lesson at CIE


  • Further English practice specifically adapted to your needs
  • English for Specific Purposes (Business, Medicine, Law, conversation, etc.)
  • Examination preparation (IELTS, FCE, etc.)
  • GCSE and Advanced Level (A level) exams

Our group lessons are interactive, focused and with an emphasis on communication.

For the first 2 hours we work with a course book to enable you to improve the 4 main skills: speaking, listening, reading and writing as well as grammar and vocabulary. The third hour focuses on practical English and study skills to help you use the English you have learnt.

Due to the small size of the classes teachers can personalise the classes to suit your individual needs which you can work on further in your one-to-one lessons.

  • You will have homework most nights and you will have a test at the end of each week so you can monitor your progress.
  • All course materials are provided.
  • You will receive a certificate at the end of your course stating your level according to the Common European Framework.


Two activities will be offered each week including one free activity and one paid activity. For more information see our activities page.
