  • Homes and furniture
  • Daily routine
  • Talking about the future
  • Talking about the past
  • Describing people

These may vary depending on the learners’ ability on the course.

How I'll learn

You will get the chance to use the language in real-life situations with fun and engaging role-plays and lively group discussions.

You will also have access to specialised websites for home learning.

Furthermore, you will get the opportunity to develop your language skills according to your own specific needs.
