General English Courses

You can learn English at five different English language levels, ranging from elementary through to advanced and you can start your classes on any Monday.

About one third of class time is dedicated to conversation and the remainder covers the other disciplines. If you want to learn English these are good all-round courses to give a basic knowledge of English or to improve on skills that are already present.

There is a course here to suit everybody.
