If you want to improve your English skills, you will need to improve all of your key language skills. We want to make sure that you get the most out of your lessons so our General English course will focus on your:

  • Speaking and Listening
  • Pronunciation
  • Reading and Writing
  • Grammar and Vocabulary

You can choose how long you wish to enroll for, from 1 week to 24 weeks, either at one of our three English Centres or by joining a virual classroom online.

We want to give you the freedom to choose how, when and for how long you want to study.

Our General English courses in the UK offer 20 lessons per week in either  morning or afternoon classes. In Dublin we offer 25 lessons per week if you choose the morning courses and 20 lessons per week if you want to learn English in the afternoons.

But you also have the option of more English lessons per week if you choose our Intensive English course. If you only have time to study English part-time you can choose Part-time English at our London and Eastbourne Centres in the UK.

More information

Our General English courses provide a great opportunity to study English, either online or while living in the UK or Ireland for as long as you need. 

With our range of locations and accredited courses, you can choose to learn English in the busy cities of London and Dublin, or in the relaxing (and sunny) seaside town of Eastbourne. 

Our General English course is aimed at increasing your confidence in using the language on a daily basis so that you are comfortable in an English-speaking environment, whether this is socially, for work, for travel or for study.

We want you to have the best experience while studying with us, whether you do so for a short, or long-term.

While improving your English language skills at any of our Twin Centres, you will be enjoy a learning experience based on project based learning as well as a communicative teaching method.  

If you choose to enrol for longer term study in either our UK or Dublin English Centres, you can experience more of the culture, and you will have more time to practise your English while sight-seeing and socialising with other students. 

We also offer the option to gain some work experience whilst improving your English language skills with internship placements as a separate service. Our award-winning team can help you find the right work experience, creating the perfect environment for you to practise the skills that you have learned on your longer term English course. 

All our English courses are supported by our Twin e-learning platform where students have access to various study materials and all of their course work. 

We also have a number of measures in place to make sure our students are safe and happy during their time with us. For those under 18 we also provide further care and support, please visit our Care and Support page for more information.
