General English

For the first 90 minutes we will 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.

21st Century Skills

In the second lesson you will be focussing on 21st century skills to build your confidence and develop fluency. This includes topic based project work, conversation, critical thinking exercises, communication, collaboration, team work, drama, culture exchange, and much more. This lesson will give you a lot of freedom to express yourself in English and be creative with what you have learnt.
