General English Intensive

‘Build confidence, work hard and have fun – Maximise your learning progress’

The General English programme develops your English language and communication skills, giving you the confidence and ability to function in everyday situations. Through a communicative approach, you will practise your listening, speaking, reading and writing skills. There are also many opportunities to learn these skills in a variety of ‘real-life’ situations. You will also be able to improve your pronunciation and develop your grammar and vocabulary range.

English Path offers six levels of General English from Beginner to Advanced. Our Beginner level class accepts students with very little exposure to English.  For example, students who have not yet acquired a single word. No one’s level is too low. Lower level students may also choose to increase their progress by taking additional 1-1 classes. In contrast, our Advanced General English class is for students with high level communicative skills. Some students may consider an 20 lesson morning or afternoon only course or a semi intensive course. For those students who would like more time to explore the city in which they’re studying, we recommend the General English 20 lessons or semi-intensive 25 lessons courses.
