General English Lessons

We help students improve all their skills (reading, writing, speaking and listening) and learn grammar, vocabulary and phrases with age-appropriate topics and activities. There is an emphasis on involving students in collaborative tasks, spending the second class each day using newly learned language in fun productive activities (for example, role-play, producing a blog). Students will find out interesting facts about our virtual tour activities before attending these.
