EAL – English as Additional Language

Our English as an Additional Language (EAL) would be aimed at two groups:

B1 - those who are comfortable with English but are looking to take the next step and require some help in expanding their vocabulary and use of English.

B2 - aimed at those students who are looking to expand their English beyond the basics and who feel that they are ready to really tackle those persistent pronunciation and grammar errors, in an effort to fine-tune their command of the language.

Both courses will cover vocabulary, grammar, conversation practice, role play & activities to try to improve students' knowledge of the language and the culture it comes from.
