Summer General English Course

Learn English in the company of like-minded people from around the world on this highly popular course!

Designed for adults of all nationalities and abilities, this lively and imaginative programme focuses on speaking, listening, reading and writing to help you communicate confidently and fluently in everyday English. Lessons are interactive and structured to allow maximum time to learn and practise new vocabulary, colloquial English, idioms and grammar. The main emphasis is on developing your confidence and fluency to communicate outside the classroom.

We co-operate with another British Council accredited school, The English Language Centre, for adult courses during the summers to ensure a good mix of ages and nationalities. Your classes will be held at Loxdale English Centre and ELC will look after your academic and the adult social programme.

Our maximum class size is just 12 students, which means you will receive personal attention from your teacher at all times.

At the end of the course you will receive an attractive certificate showing your level of achievement. Hang it on the wall. Show your family and friends. You’ve earned it!
