Information on intensive English courses

►The courses are taught by highly qualified and experienced teachers of English. Classes take place in rooms equipped with audio-visual facilities with Internet access. Regular testing enables the participants to learn about the progress they have made and in case of difficulties they are provided with helpful advice during one-to-one sessions with the teachers.

► At the end of the course, students take the final exam. Participants receive a Certificate of Graduation from the Course at the level of language proficiency they have achieved.
