Functional English

Our Functional English lessons focus on practical skills you will use in everyday situations in an English-speaking environment. How do you ask for help in a shop or order politely in a restaurant? How do you express agreement or disagreement in a meeting or discussion? How do you make your point when writing?


General English
For the 2nd 3rd hours we work with a course book. This will help you to improve you 4 main skills: speaking, listening, reading, and writing. In addition, you will also study grammar and vocabulary.


IELTS Exam Preparation or TOPIC
In the afternoon, classes will EITHER be focused on topic and project team work, or the IELTS exam and the skills and strategies you will need to gain a better score in the exam. Classes include regular practice tests with individual feedback and advice on how you can improve. We can also offer individual advice for students about your options after the exam.
