This will include the use of multimedia, role-plays and discussions as well as covering all the vocabulary and grammar appropriate to your level of study. Each week you can expect to cover all four skills; reading, writing, speaking and listening.
Students studying at Upper Intermediate or Advanced level will get the opportunity to practise for the Cambridge FCE, CAE or CPE exams. If you are interested in taking a Cambridge exam, please speak to us.
Doing an English course in Manchester city centre means that you are surrounded by lots of things to see and do. Visits to museums and other cultural locations are an important part of learning. They allow you to use your English outside of the classroom whilst also learning about the UK’s exciting history and geography. Trips are organised by your teacher every term and are fully integrated into the syllabus.
