General English

For the first 2 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.


Practical English

The third hour focuses on practical English and study skills. It will help you use the English you have learnt. (For example, going to the restaurant, colloquial English, interrupting a conversation, etc.)


IELTS Exam Preparation

In the afternoon, classes will be focussed on 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.


Lunch time

CIE's main campus is located right in the city centre. This means, you have a lot of choice. You can find almost any type of food within 5 minutes walking distance. There are also a few supermarkets very close. Furthermore, there is a weekly food market with restaurant quality food.
