General English20 Lessons / Week

This class focuses on speaking in real-world situations, but also includes listening, vocabulary, reading, writing and grammar. Each week there is a different topic that relates to real life scenarios you encounter while using English in every day life.
There are role-plays, debates and discussions about current topics and current events, travel and survival English, English for work, slang and idioms, conversational English and much more. These skills will help you to speak English better in every aspect of your life.

Elective classes are specialized courses that full-time students take in addition to their General English classes.

Based on highest demand by students, skills and topics covered in Elective classes include:

  • academic English
