Activate! General English

ACTIVATE! general english

Our Activate! General English language courses will improve your English skills. 

We believe we can activate your full language learning potential through fun and motivating lessons which practise all four skills: speaking, listening, reading and writing.

Lessons include a mix of language input and communicative activities. Your teacher will always give you clear learning aims at the start of every lesson. We aim to present and then practise the target language of the lesson through pairwork and groupwork, language games, role plays, short films and so on. Your pronunciation will also be improved in every lesson.

Choose our standard course of 15 hours tuition per week or a more intensive course of 30 hours tuition per week.
All courses are available for both closed group bookings and One-to-One tuition for individuals.
Combine our Activate! General English Courses with a Cambridge Exam course or an IELTS or OET course.

All group packages include a full programme of trips and activities. 

Dependent on length of stay, groups will usually have one full day trip and one half day trip during every week of their stay. 

We have a large selection of popular trip options to choose from and we are also happy to work with your group leader in arranging more specific excursions that are of most interest to the group. 

Similarly, groups can choose from our extensive range of afternoon and evening activities or we are welcome to any suggestions. Our dedicated Centre Manager and team of Activity Leaders are experts at engaging students in a fun and exciting way that solidifies knowledge gained in the classroom.
