Closed Groups

ESE organises Closed Groups for students who share common learning objectives.

per week

Closed group courses are designed for students who come from the same class/learning experience with the same goals. The strength of this course is that it can be tailored made to the students’ learning requirements, as long as the group profile is received 4 weeks prior to arrival. Alternatively, the group can follow our Closed Group Programme, which is topic based with a strong focus on developing fluency.
Depending on the learning objectives of the group between 20 to 40 lessons per week may be booked, with each lesson being 45 minutes long. You may book your course to start any day between Monday and Friday between September and June although other dates may also be considered.

What is your level of English?

Don’t worry – we’ll figure that out for you.


Before arrival you can do the ESE online placement test, which must be submitted at least 7 days before you start your course.


Alternatively, our academic staff will ask you to sit for a short placement test on your first day at school, so you are guaranteed to be in the course that is the right level for you.
