Concept

Performing spoken English

Fit for the next level

The morning lessons concentrate on the core English skills. The small groups enable us to focus on individual students and address their language talents as well as their uncertainties. We consolidate grammar concepts, expand vocabulary and train fluency and complexity in speaking English. We encourage students to broaden their horizons in text comprehension and analysis and develop their presentation and writing skills.

Motivation und Erfahrung prägen unser Team.
Kleine Lerngruppen mit max. 5 Schülern

The afternoon lessons are theme-based and deal with subjects of general and academic interest to challenge our students to push their boundaries. The subjects are for instance Multiculturalism, Anglophone Cultures, Science and Society and Introducing Shakespeare.
