Part-time language courses

English

General English

General English courses will focus on practical English skills, to help you communicate in day-to-day situations, from work to holidays.

Taught by fully qualified native speakers, lessons will cover all skills of reading, writing, speaking and listening and will follow a course book appropriate to the students' level.

Cambridge Examination Preparation

Courses to prepare for the following examinations:

•A2 Key (previously KET)

•B1 Preliminary (previously PET)

•B2 First (previously First Certificate)

•C1 Advanced (previously Cambridge Advanced)

Sitting the exam is not compulsory, but if you choose to do so, we will arrange for you to take it at the Cambridge Open Centre (additional exam fees apply).

IELTS exam preparation and one-to-one lessons are available by arrangement – please contact us if you are interested in these options.

Dates and times

Classes will start in the week beginning September 9th 2019, and will be in six-week blocks (to coincide with standard school terms and half-terms). There will also be additional (free) sessions, in the week beginning September 2nd, for placement tests. These are simple tests designed to  assess your level of English, and mean that we can make sure you are on the appropriate course.

 

Please note, the timetable shown here is provisional, and will depend on enrolment numbers and demand for courses. 

We may be able to be flexible concerning days and times of lessons, so do let us know if you cannot make a particular class and we will if possible offer additional classes or alternative times.

An additional registration fee of £10 is payable on your first booking, which includes the initial placement test.

Tuition

Classes will be taught by Gladys Sánchez-Ray. Originally from Buenos Aires, Gladys has been a Spanish teacher for more than 20 years in Cambridge: "I have a real passion for teaching, my aim is for students to enjoy the way of learning while walking the unforgettable path of socialising a new culture.  Because Spanish is spoken in so many countries, traditions and customs are very vast and this could give a very interesting possibility of understanding the good and the bad in Non-European countries."
Gladys teaches Spanish at Impington Village College and Hills Road Sixth Form College of Adult Education in Cambridge.  She also teaches IGCSE and A-Level at NEC - National Extension College, and completed her Teacher Training with the Certificate in Education at Anglia Ruskin University.

Please note – we may be able to be flexible concerning days and times of lessons, so do let us know if you cannot make a particular class. Depending on numbers, we will endeavour to offer additional classes.

 

We do offer one-to-one lessons – contact us if you are interested in this option.
