25+ CoursesCourses for the Individual & 2:1 Courses
Other Special Courses

25+ Courses are short, intensive English language programmes suitable for people who want to study in small classes to develop their English language skills in a general or work-related context.

The needs of some clients can only be really met in individual or very small classes. The teaching programme can then be tailored to meet these needs and the intensity of the course varied to maximise the use of available time.

Courses for the Individual & 2:1 Courses

Full-time one-to-one courses can start on any Monday. These courses normally include 22½ hours of tuition per full week (with a reduction when there is a public holiday in the week).

Two people from the same company at the same language level and with the same needs may benefit from a 2:1 course. These courses can start on any Monday and include 22½ hours of tuition per full week (with a reduction when there is a public holiday in the week).
