General English 30+ combination course
Our General English 30+ combination course is ideal for mature individuals who wish to focus on their general English skills as well as their own individual language needs. The course combines a group class with individual training for a more focused and intensive programme.
Who’s it for?
This course is ideal if you have a specific area of language that you wish to focus on or if you are preparing for something special such as an exam or public speaking event.

At the end of the course you can expect to:
Be able to speak more confidently
Be able to communicate more accurately
Be able to better understand the news and media
Be able to use English more effectively for work or travel
Be able to deal with everyday situations like meeting people or booking a hotel
