What is your level of English?

Don’t worry – we’ll walk you through it.

Before booking, you are required to submit a 200-250 word essay on a given title which will be reviewed by our exam coordinator. However, it will be your second test which determines allocation to a class. This is held on your first day at the school to re-confirm your level. These tests are conducted for the sole purpose of ensuring you follow your course at the right level in order to achieve your academic goals.
