Free English Class attendee 2018-19:

Having the opportunity to attend these classes helped me gain confidence in speaking English and helped to improve my vocabulary. Classes are very dynamic and there are plenty of opportunities to practice speaking. What we learn is always related to everyday life, so it is really worth joining

  • Upper-intermediate (ESOL Level 2/ IELTS 6.0 – 6.5).

The Free English Classes will commence in October/November 2019 and will run once a week in the early evening.  All courses run until April or May (exact time may change according to the needs of our student teachers).

‘Taking the Free English Classes was a good experience for me, especially because students did a very good job teaching us. I really liked having young teachers who helped me a lot to improve my English. I liked the combination of the teaching environment and the teaching method. The method is relaxing and professional -  just interesting!
