English language courses

Our main English group course is General English for Work and Life (GEWL) and students can study from 60 hours to a whole academic year and finish one level in that time.

As all our teachers are native speakers, we try to use the target language as much as possible in the class and the classes are highly participatory.

To complete one level involves 140 hours of classroom study (usually 1 x 60 hour course before Christmas + 1 x 80 hour courses in January-May).

At the end of each level, all students take an ILS level test and English language students usually have the option taking an Internationally recognised qualification too.

All ILS courses and level tests are linked to the Common European Framework of levels (A1-C2)
