At St Giles, we understand that different students have different needs. The St Giles "learner-centred" approach to teaching English enables our teachers to meet your individual needs. Courses cover practice in all four skill areas: reading, writing, speaking and listening. However, you will find the focus of our General English progammes is on speaking and listening - generally the main requirements of today's modern English speaker.
