Group English Courses for Adults

Group English Courses

A Group English Course means you will have all of your lessons with other adult students. You have the benefit of interacting with other people but the content of your lessons will focus on the class as a whole. You can choose from General English only or mix General + Business English

General Group Courses
(GG15 / GG22 / GG30)

A general communication 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.

GG15 = 15 hour course : You finish lessons at 12h15 and are free for the afternoon to relax, study or go shopping!

GG22 = 22.5 hour course : In the afternoon you will have lessons until 15h00 which are ‘needs based’. Your teacher will consult the class, and collectively you can decide the content.

GG30 = 30 hour course : In the afternoon you will have 3 hours of needs based lessons until 16h45. If you are serious about making really good progress we recommend choosing this course.

General & Business Group (GB30)

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

If you need English for both business and social purposes this is a perfect combination. The course focuses on English for general social situations and English to use in the workplace.
