What course is included in the Young Adults programme?

General English 20 is the standard and most popular course in this programme as it offers classes in the morning or afternoon with more free time for leisure.  Generally, the four daily lessons of General English 20 are held in the afternoon. However, for the more serious learner two other courses are good options: General English 30 and Intensive English.  Below is some information on all three courses.  Do note however that opting for either GE 30 or Intensive English 30 means that some leisure activities may be missed when the additional lessons have conflicting times with any organised activities.
General Engish 20 Lessons per week

General English 20

Mornings       4 lessons
Afternoons    no lessons

20 lessons per week, recommended for anyone who wants to improve their English in a class with students from all over the world at the same English level. This is a popular course with students who need to brush up their English in a short period (1 -3 weeks) or  to  really  improve  their English  to  higher  levels  at  ESE  for a long period  (4 – 24 weeks) but with more free time.  

General Engish 30 Lessons per week

General English 30

Mornings       4 lessons
Afternoons    2 lessons

30 lessons per week, recommended for anyone who wants or needs to dedicate more time to learning English.  More lessons means faster progress in improving your English level.  Morning lessons are similar to GE 20 lessons whilst afternoon lessons are more flexible and tend to be more conversational according to the students’ needs and requirements.

Intensive English

Intensive English

Mornings       4 lessons
Afternoons    One-to-one tuition

30 lessons per week, recommended for anyone who wants to combine group lessons with one-to-one lessons. This course is very popular with students who want or need to improve their English in a shorter period of time (1 – 3 weeks).  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.
