Our high-quality English programme offers the following:
English teaching is split into classes according to language ability. At each level equal attention is paid to the four essential language skills: reading, writing, listening and speaking.
In general, beginners and the youngest students follow the fun and engaging Cambridge Young Learners series of textbooks from DELTA publishing, while students in intermediate and higher classes follow the excellent English Explorers courses from National Geographic publishers, Cengage.
The teaching timetable, like the academic programme as a whole, is specifically designed for the target age. More basic classes (A groups) run in short, sharp bursts, whereas lessons at higher levels (B groups) are slightly longer.
Both variants of the timetable incorporate 5 hours of teaching 5 days per week with activities and sport between morning and afternoon lessons. Full-day excursions on Wednesdays and Sundays provide not only a break from the classroom setting, but also a valuable chance to practice English in real life situations.
