Intensive English Course (plus subjects)

Our Intensive English Course (plus subjects) is designed to develop the English language skills of students through classes in English and other school subjects. It is perfect for students looking to improve their English, and also provides general academic preparation for British boarding schools.

This course is available as Full Boarding or as a Day Course (see below for fees).

The lessons are lively and interesting and all aspects of the English language are covered. Students become more confident about using English, especially spoken English, as emphasis is placed on clear and assured communication.

Also included in the timetable are subject lessons taught in English including geography, history, science, mathematics, computing, art and drama. This provides interesting variety and increases English vocabulary and language development.
