Student writing on a book

We help secondary teens develop their English reading, writing, speaking and listening skills and consolidate their knowledge of grammar and improve their range of vocabulary through topic-based materials to strengthen their confidence in English communication. These courses are focused towards maximising grades and improving communication skills. Students will focus on tasks such as problem-solving, project work, topical discussions and working independently.



These courses have a strong emphasis on speaking, listening and pronunciation, with lots of opportunities to use your English in fun, lively classes, as well as opportunities to improve your reading and writing skills. This is supported by a focus on the grammar and vocabulary you need to communicate effectively in a range of social, academic and professional environments. Find out more information about the course here.
