General English 30 for 30
30 weekly lessons for the 30+ age bracket.
This course is available at our sister school ETI within the ESE school building.
General English 30 for 30 is designed specifically for adult students in the 30 plus age bracket. The course is delivered at ESE’s sister school, ETI, within the same ESE school building. ETI, or Executive Training Institute, offers the perfect setting to adult students who would like to learn and improve their English in a professional and exclusive environment with other like-minded students.
ETI classrooms are more executive-like and outfitted with the latest technology in Interactive Whiteboards (IWB’s). In addition, classes are smaller with a maximum of 8 students per class offering more personal attention and opportunity for more interaction between students and teacher. The ETI lounge also complements the setting of exclusivity offering students a stylish area in which to socialise or relax with a cup of coffee, or catch up on news on TV or in newspapers and magazines.

It is also popular with students who have a well defined learning goal and who need that personal attention and tuition by a professional teacher.
If you prefer to combine a General English group course with one-to-one tuition while learning English, then the Intensive (General English) option is for you.
When booking the Intensive option, you follow group lessons in the morning and have the opportunity to practise and improve your fluency with other English language learners of the same language level. In the afternoon, you benefit from one-to-one individual attention from your teacher. During this lesson, you can ask your teacher to focus on any area of language you like or simply take the opportunity to practise more speaking on a one-to-one basis. Our academic staff ensures that you follow the course at the right language level for you.
