Central Language School offers full-time and part-time courses. Information on each of these courses can be found using the menu on the right.
We welcome students all year round and close only over the Christmas period for 2 weeks.
Your Course and your Timetable
Your course may depend on your level, so we give you a placement assessment when you arrive. You can also take the Cambridge English test, which will tell you which level you are and which exam you may be able to prepare for. This is only a rough guide, so we will advise you properly once you are studying with us.
Our Full-time courses are called General English (15 hours tuition per week) and Intensive English (21 hours tuition per week). Lessons are every morning from Monday to Friday, 09:30 until 13:00 with a coffee-break at 11:00. If you choose Intensive English there are also classes on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons between 14:00-16:00.
We also offer a Part-time course: our Afternoon Course, which is the afternoon part of Intensive English, so on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons between 14:00-16:00.
You can start on any Monday (except public holidays) for a minimum of 1 week. Most students study 4–12 weeks. Some students study for up to 1 year. We can advise you on the length of course needed to achieve particular goals.
The maximum class size is 10, but normally classes have around 6 students. You will be placed in a class according to your grammar level, speaking ability and personal aims. Using different course books you will study English through a variety of topic areas with an emphasis on spoken communication. This involves pair-work, discussions and role-play. You will also have the opportunity to extend your vocabulary and consolidate your knowledge of grammar.
