Speak and write from the first class

An important part of learning English is speaking and writing correctly. With our communication courses you’ll improve your fluency in different areas of English through activities that focus on oral and written expression.


In our communication courses for adults you’ll work in pairs or groups under the teacher’s guidance to develop your full communicative potential in the language. You’ll also have the opportunity to experiment with different types of language for different contexts, both formal and informal. In addition, you’ll learn to express your interests and opinions, use everyday social expressions correctly and the natural pauses of English spontaneously. You’ll develop strategies to make your conversation more fluent and natural, while gaining confidence when speaking and writing in English.

Speak, practice, improve your pronunciation and intonation and communicate in English with confidence from day one.
