Adding on one-to-one lessons to a programme is a great way to help a student focus on any individual goals or weaknesses. Our students study everything from specific technical vocabulary to concentrating on writing skills or preparing for an exam that we do not offer group classes for. The one-to-one classes will be tailored to the student’s needs and add real value to their learning. One-to-one lessons will be held after group classes have finished. 

Intensive One to One classes

Dates: All year round, start any Monday
Classes held Monday to Friday (Please note bank holidays)

Individual lessons are perfect if you  want to focus on specific language skills or vocabulary. You can choose the number of lessons per week and the course will be designed especially for you and your objectives.

We can help you get to where you want to go when it comes to your English language ambitions. This option is recommended in particular for beginners or advanced students as we would recommend that beginners join an MCIP course for a couple of weeks before joining our elementary classes.
