Belfast English Lessons: General Course

Our general English classes are aimed at helping you improve your English. Rather than look at what you have done in the past, we look at what you know now, or more specifically, what you can do. We use a wide range of material – from various course books to authentic material – to make our English lessons as engaging and relevant to you as possible.

How much does the General English course cost?

The General English course operates on continuous enrolment which allows for students to join our classes on any Monday. All students are assessed prior to starting their course and are placed according to their language ability.

We use the Common European Framework as a basis for our levels combined with levels outlined by IH World. For example, A2 is divided into two levels, level 2/Elementary and level 3/ Pre Intermediate.

Once placed, our aim is to develop your language ability in order to advance to the next level. (e.g a strong B1 student may move to B2 level depending on their individual progress and ability).

Why study English in Belfast?

The best way to learn a language is to surround yourself with native speakers. That means to learn English, you should spend time in an English speaking country.

Of course, the obvious destinations might be London or New York.

However, it’s worth thinking about what makes a city great for international students. Belfast has the perfect combination of culture, affordability and a laid back lifestyle. After all, you want to have a great experience outside your English class.

Learning English is also much easier when you can get out and meet locals. These interactions will help to build your confidence, as well as improving your listening and speaking skills.

English lessons for work and study

Of course, many people have more specific language learning goals. We offer a number of other courses which are aimed at these students. For example, we have courses which are specifically aimed at helping you pass your IELTS. We also offer bespoke one-to-one English courses for learners with other goals.

If you are unsure which English course is right for you, don’t hesitate to get in touch by phone or email.
