A general English course will teach you English from first principles focusing on the four key elements of the language; speaking; listening; writing and reading. It provides an all round approach and is aimed at all levels from beginner to advanced. It is aimed at students learning the English language for the long-term.

Our English tutors in London, though, will tailor the tuition course to your needs so if you need to focus on one particular area such as spoken English then this can be done. 

Most of our tutors use a communicative method to get students speaking as quickly as possible, immersing them in the language.
