Academic support

On your first day, you will do a placement test. Your test result helps us make sure that your first class is the correct English level for you. Your teacher is always there to help you. Your teacher will give you feedback each week after you do your weekly test. If there is a topic that you need to improve, your teacher will give you some extra work to do. We regularly ask you for your feedback on our teachers and courses and this helps us to make things better. We have a self-study library where you can do extra work or you can use one of our computer labs to do extra work online. The Director of Studies is always there to listen if you have a concern or worry.
