Adults’ classes

We offer classes for adults: post beginner and intermediate.

The majority of our adult students are actually (but not exclusively) parents of bilingual children so although we have many beginners, most of these have had some exposure to the language already. The classes are fun and held in a relaxed atmosphere.

Learning is focused on oral expression and vocabulary enrichment: adults are encouraged to ask questions and express their opinions, as well as participate in role-plays. Grammar basics are covered to support the oral learning.

Class times

Classes are held on Saturdays for 1 hour and 3/4 between 9am and 10.45am or 10.45am and 12.30pm. 
We will always endeavour to accommodate parents attending the adult class to ensure that their children are placed in classes which run at the same time.
