ENGLISH AS A FOREIGN LANGUAGE

HOW DO I KNOW WHAT MY ENGLISH LEVEL IS?

The first lesson consists of assessment activities in order to establish strengths and weakness and to determine your level.

Generally speaking if you can only talk about yourself, understand basic greetings and only speak in a limited way you’re working at beginner level; if you can talk about everyday situations and can speak English with some confidence you’re  working  around intermediate level and if you can form well-structured arguments  and use English in a range of culturally appropriate ways you’re working around advanced level.

WHAT IS THE CONTENT OF A TYPICAL LESSON?

Which English language course should I choose?

Choose a specific area or work on all 4 key skills - reading, writing, speaking and listening.  The choice is yours!  Grammar and vocabulary are essential components of each course.

Most classes are for one to one tuition except for the Conversational English Group class and the General English Group class.  

Lessons are tailor made.  See types of lessons offered. 

CAN YOU HELP WITH ASSIGNMENTS?

 

​I will not complete assignments  on behalf of learners but I can help with the English.  Assignments need to be already completed by the learner and printed out (in paper form).  Help is given only during lesson time and in general terms.

HOW MANY LESSONS WILL I NEED TO IMPROVE MY LEVEL OF ENGLISH? 

The following courses below are '1 to 1' courses and for a block of 4 lessons (pay monthly) cost £140 for 4 x 1 hour lessons or £40 for a single 1 hour lesson, excluding transport costs. 

An advanced payment is required to secure the time slot for the lesson(s).  All lessons are held online until further notice due to COVID-19.
