Intensive Plus Speaking Skills


The Intensive Plus Course is designed for students who wish to supplement their Intensive Course with extra conversation classes in small groups in the afternoons to improve fluency in English.

It allows students to develop their language skills in the morning lessons and put these skills into practice in the afternoon group conversation classes. The smaller conversation classes help to facilitate meaningful discussion within the group. Teachers concentrate on vocabulary building and idiomatic language, leading to more natural English speech.

The afternoon conversation classes are available at three levels, starting from pre-intermediate and cover a wide range of topics of discussion.
