In order to help you choose the most suitable course for you, here is an overview of the various types of courses offered in our ESL schools:
STANDARD courseThis course is suitable for students who wish to improve their language skills while having time at their disposal in order to make the most of their stay in immersion. Usually held in the morning, the lessons will develop your general language skills and cover varied topics related to current events, daily life and your interests. Outside of class hours, you will have all the time necessary to put your newly acquired knowledge into practice in the field.
INTENSIVE courseIn addition to the standard course, the intensive programme includes 5 additional lessons per week with a focus on oral communication and optional topics. You will have the opportunity to go deeper into the subjects covered in class through interactive activities favouring a more communicative and relaxed approach. This is an effective way to achieve long-lasting progress through immediate hands-on practice of the language!
PREMIUM courseThe premium course offers motivated students a chance to take 30 lessons per week. Every day, a mini-group lesson will allow you to work specifically on your writing and reading skills. This option is effective and challenging, and therefore suitable for participants who wish to make a maximum amount of progress in a minimum amount of time, both in writing and in speaking.
PRIVATE courseWith the private course, you will enjoy tailor-made teaching focussing on your personal objectives. With your private teacher, you will cover the topics that you wish to study and progress according to your needs and at your own pace.
COMBI 5 & 10 coursesThese programmes balance group lessons with private tuition (5 or 10 lessons per week) and are perfectly suited to more demanding students. Participants benefit from interaction with other students during group lessons and can then work on difficult points or go deeper into topics of interest with their private tutor. Private tuition also gives you the opportunity to work on oral communication in an intensive manner, outside of a group setting.
BUSINESS courseThis option is ideal for participants who wish to develop their knowledge of the business world while improving their general language skills. The business course takes place in mini-groups, allowing participants to boost their command of the language in record time.
EXAM PREP or EXAM PREP PREMIUM coursesOffering 5 or 10 extra lessons per week, EXAM PREP courses are suitable for students who wish to confirm their language knowledge with an official exam.

These courses can only be booked prior to the exam date.
