Students can choose a course according to their required number of English academic hours. Courses at all levels are organised around a theme for each week. Students build up an integrated knowledge of vocabulary and grammar connected with these themes. The emphasis is on building students' confidence and ability in speaking English through discussion, role play, pronunciation and project work.
Other skills (reading, writing and listening) are included in lessons to support students' oral skills. Students are encouraged to involve their host families in their learning.
Each course is linked to an Activity Programme which provides fun and a wide range of interesting and appealing activities and excursions. Each session consists of three academic hours (3 x 60 minutes).
