If you are taking the course on a part time basis (2 days a week) the course runs on a 6 month cycle. For full time courses (4 days a week), the period is 3 months.

We recommend students follow one course as much as possible, however we also understand that work can make this difficult. That’s why we offer our students the chance to move between classes and make up missed lessons in other timetables.

We ask our students to give us 2 week’s notice if they can no longer continue with their course. We will always send you a reminder asking you to confirm if you are continuing with us. If you tell us after the 2 week’s notice period, there is a £50 cancellation fee which you can use towards 4 classes.

We only prepare students for exams which are a B2 level or higher, however our courses teach all the skills you need in order to take an A2 or B1 level exam. If you have very specific language goals then we recommend having private lessons. Alternatively, if you aim to take the Cambridge First Certificate in English (B2) exam, then our Intermediate General English Course (B1 level) will help you reach that goal.
