Course description

This course is best suited for those who have time constraints but are still aiming to learn English in an efficient manner.

The teaching takes place in small groups of 3 to 6 students. The small teaching groups ensures that you will get an optimal learning progression, in addition, to give the teacher an opportunity to follow up on each student.

The teaching is held in English from day one and is set up so that you will improve your writing, and oral language skills, regardless of which level you choose. There may be requirements for homework and other individual tasks that will be reviewed in class.

There will be a systematic review of the course books used for the chosen level.

The classes will be held twice a week – either from 10.00-12.00 or 19.00-21.00.
