Individual Intensive English Course

SHARE THIS WITH YOUR FRIENDS:

The 20-lesson per week Individual Intensive English Course is designed to suit specific needs in terms of course length and content. In the Individual Intensive English Course, students can request a special emphasis on a particular language skill or area of expertise.

In addition to being an excellent alternative for students wanting a great deal of personal attention, the Individual Intensive Course is also appropriate for young students (under 16 years of age) and pre-beginners (students who have not yet learned the alphabet in English).
