Programs and courses

All our courses are based on communicative approaches and combine learning common expressions used in everyday situations with thorough and systematic grammatical approach. One of our most important principles consists in giving our students the linguistic means to express themselves in everyday situations by constant training of communicative skills and models, which allows learners to reach their own communicative objectives.

  • Standard Group Course: Communicative teaching in small groups (max.12 students) makes this course a pleasurable and productive experience and gives participants the chance to learn communicative skills in “real life” situations. This course of 20 weekly lessons is offered year round and follows a modular pattern of two-week units.
  • Intensive Group Course: The standard course plus 5 lessons that are taught in mini-groups of up to 6 students on two afternoons.
