General English course (standard & intensive)
The course aims to improve the general knowledge of English, through a systematic practice of the four components of language learning: reading, writing, listening comprehension and communication skills. The course takes place both in the morning and in the afternoon in some schools.
The intensive use the same bases as the standard course, with the advantage that in the intensive courses the max. of participants is less than in the standard. This allows the participants to be more followed and to proceed much faster towards their goals. This course takes place from morning to afternoon. Different schools have different lesson times.
Business / specific course
Course designed to meet the needs of professionals, with meeting simulations, Business telephone conversations, presentations etc. Course that benefits from a reduced number of participants so that the teacher has the time necessary to follow all the participants specifically. Before their arrival participants are required to complete a Needs Analysis questionnaire to establish their needs and their initial level.
Course designed to meet the personal needs of a participant. This course consists exclusively of one-to-one lessons whose content is carefully designed on the specific needs of each participant. Once again the use of the Needs Analysis Questionnaire becomes vital. Course that allows rapid progress towards the goals set.
The standard program can be completed and reinforced by extra individual lessons. The combined course offers the opportunity to follow a regular group course where you can interact with other students, while individual lessons can help you review linguistic concepts that are less clear to you. The professor will focus the lessons on your “weak points”.

Courses for Juniors
We offer a wide selection of qualitative courses in the international arena for children and adolescents, all alternatives with total supervision in safe environments and constantly monitored. Take a look at the Juniors section and contact us for detailed information on the chosen course.
- (3 – 7 years) The courses for this age group are strongly combined with play activities that tend to associate the language with the movements and actions of the body
- (8 – 12 years) The Juniors continue to follow strongly game-oriented programs, although through the free time activities they share with other students of the same age but of different nationalities, there is a strong predisposition to express themselves without problems or prejudices.
- (13 -17 years) Adolescents are already part of a “big” category. They relate in English as if they were their native language, they use English comfortably to give and get information of any kind, and through their free time activities they improve their language level.
A tailor-made stay is offered for everyone. Everyone will be offered a course and activities in the context at his age, while the accommodation can be alternative (Hotel, apartment) and some leisure activities in common.
