General English Classes are designed for students who wish to improve their ability to communicate effectively and learn practical English. The aim of General English classes is to develop speaking, listening, reading and writing skills and improve grammatical knowledge and confidence in using the English language.

What do General English Classes Cover?

You will study English with a course book and many additional materials prepared by your teacher. Lessons are based on everyday situations, which makes them effective and useful. The syllabus for your lessons is based on course-books mostly published by Oxford, Longman and Cambridge. Your teacher will also prepare other materials to meet individual students’ needs in each course group.

You will actively participate in the lesson, work individually, in pairs and in groups, as well as with the whole class. Your teacher will correct your errors so you will make a stable progress in English.

We run English classes at all levels: starter, elementary, pre-intermediate, intermediate, upper-intermediate, advanced and proficiency.
