Everybody says that they can understand English well, but not speak and listen as quickly as they'd like. At EC London we will do our best to help you do this as fast as we can. Your course will have a balance of grammar, vocabulary, speaking, listening, reading, writing and pronunciation based on your needs. You will have two teachers who will give you the new language you need in two types of lesson. On a Monday, Wednesday and Friday you will get new input from your course book to improve the store of language in your mind, and on a Tuesday and Thursday you will receive language practice to activate this store, and make the connection between what you know and what you can say.
If you decide to take an intensive course, you will have even more time to practice and receive an extra ten lessons per week of speaking and listening practice. During your course, you will have regular meetings with your teachers to ensure that you are improving at the correct rate and meeting your learning targets. This will help us to help you work on your weaknesses, and build your confidence in using English successfully.
