Adult Enhanced

The Enhanced Programme is usually chosen by people learning English for professional purposes.

General English group work is followed by individual tuition in areas of English specific to your own business or academic study.

This combined approach means you not only benefit from learning in a group and interacting with students from around the world but also benefit from a personalised programme designed by you and your tutor where you can examine particular problems or areas of interest, such as English for business, tourism, banking or marketing.  It is a demanding but rewarding programme.

Enhanced Programme

The course includes:

  • 15 hours of language skills lessons (maximum group size 8)
  • 7.5 hours of communication skills lessons: Workshops and Team Project (maximum group size 12)
  • 5 or 7.5 hours per week of individual tuition
  • Beginner to Advanced
  • Minimum age: 17 years
