The English language entry level is B2 – C1. Students of Language level B1 are also welcome if you are prepared to do the work required to reach the appropriate test-ready grade.
The course costs £75.00 a day per student if there is more than one student. If there is one student in a lesson, the class is a half-day, either in the morning or afternoon as the student requires, and costs £75.00. A student who prefers private, one-to-one lessons, where the course is catered to their specific needs, the cost is £55 per hour. The course is ongoing so you can join the six-week course, which takes place one day a week, or a class convenient to you on a different day.
