Combination English Courses for Adults

Combination English Courses

A Combination English Course means you will have part of your lessons with other adult students in a group and the other part of your lessons on your own (individual classes). The benefit of this is you can interact with others in the group but also focus on any specific needs that you may have. You can choose from General English or Business English mixed with one-to-one lessons …

General Combination
(GC22 / GC22+ / GC30)

A general combination course for professional adults. Morning classes follow a “Communication Framework” to ensure a good mixture of skills, however priority is given to speaking, listening & pronunciation.

If you choose the GC22 course you finish group lessons at 12h15 and you will have a one-to-one lesson in the afternoon until 15h00.

If you choose the GC22+ course in the afternoon you will have group lessons until 15h00 which are ‘needs based’. From 15h15 until 16h45 you will have a one-to-one lesson.

If you choose the GC30 course in the afternoon you will have 3 hours of individual lessons from 13h30 until 16h45. If you have specific objectives and not much time we recommend this option

Business Combination
(BC30)

This is a full time 30 hour course with 15 hours individual lessons and 15 hours Business English group.

The Business Combination course is ideal for professionals who already have a good level of general English and feel comfortable in social situations but need to use English to a much higher level in business situations.

In your One-to-One lessons your teacher will carry out a needs analysis and agree a programme with you to achieve your objectives. This is your opportunity to tackle the language for your specific role in your company.

In your Business Group lessons there will be a maximum of 4 people in the class and your teacher will develop the lesson programme to suit the needs of the group as a whole.
