Adult Courses

16 years+ out of season, 18 years+ summer

​ We welcome adults all year round to Totnes.

 

You can choose from:

General English 

Our General English course forms the core of our year -round teaching programme for 16 years+, except the summer (22nd June -15th August 2020) when the minimum age is 18 years. Students aged 16 and 17 attending our school in the summer are encouraged to join our Young Adult Summer Camp.

Our General English classes will help you to improve all four skills: reading, writing, listening and speaking and we integrate our classes with our optional social programme to help you use the language in the real world.

Students who do a General English course can add:

Course length: 1-48 weeks

Minimum age: 16 years year round; 18 years summer

Class size: maximum 12: average 7

Intensive English 

Our Intensive English combines 15 hours of General English with an extra 6 clock hours of lessons a week. The focus of the Intensive lessons varies according to the needs of the students.

If you want to extend your General English practice, we will concentrate on developing your confidence as a speaker and communicator in English through authentic speaking and listening activities.

If you want to prepare for an examination such as Language Cert, Cambridge B2 First, CAE or IELTS, the focus will be on exam techniques with regular practice tests. We've had great success helping students to get good exam results so book this option now to help us fulfil your potential.

If you want to improve your business communication skills, the focus will be on 'work related' English and interview, telephone and presentation skills practice.

Please tell us your aim when you book this option- if you are the only student we will still run the course with half the number of hours on a one to one basis e.g 3 hours one to one instead of 6 hours in a group.

I really enjoyed working in the cafe. Julia and Colin were very kind, helpful and funny. I had a great time.                                                                                                                                                                 Jana (Switzerland) 17 years

 

One to one classes 

There is no better way to give your language skills a huge boost than our one-to-one classes. You have one of our fabulous teachers all to yourself to focus on exactly what you need, whatever your level. 

 

In your first lesson you will discuss your goals, strengths and areas to work on, and make an action plan with your teacher. Some people send us information about what they want to study before they arrive so that we can design a programme in advance. If you have the time, we really recommend that you do this. You can choose to focus on General English or Business English, or a combination.


Most of our students combine One-to-One lessons with General English or Intensive English so that they have a balance of group and individual lessons, which is the best way to progress as quickly as possible.
