General English for Adults (30+)

Our 30+ General English course is exclusively for adults over 30. It is an opportunity to study with like-minded people in a style that suits mature learners. The course is designed to improve your vocabulary and spoken fluency with a mixture of ‘in class’ lessons and outdoor activities.

There are 25 hours of lessons per week. Each week has an interesting theme or topic which the classes are based on. In the mornings your class time will focus on listening, speaking, vocabulary and reading in English. Then in the afternoons, you will have practical lessons outside, which include trips to London’s best museums, galleries, attractions, etc.  All outside lessons are connected to what you are studying in classes. This style of learning helps you to ‘learn’ and then ‘practise’ in real life situations on the same day.

By the end of the course students should have improved their:

  • Knowledge of grammar and vocabulary
  • Ability to use ‘every day’ natural English, so they can communicate more fluently
  • Experience of speaking and listening to native English people
  • Understanding of written English

The course is suitable for intermediate as well as advanced English learners. We have a different syllabus for upper and lower levels.

Maximum class size is 15.
