What are the school opening hours?

Can I choose my teacher?
This is not usually possible, because timetabling of teachers is very complicated. However, if you decide to have one-to-one tuition, we will match you with the best teacher for your individual needs.

How do I know which course is right for me?
As well as offering a full placement staff our fully trained staff will work with you to analyze your language needs and to find the best learning situation for you. Don't forget that what was right two years ago might not be right now.

How can I join a course?
You can visit your local centre or email or phone in with your details. If it's your first time studying with us, we'll invite you in for a placement test (this is to assess your grammar & vocabulary knowledge and ability in reading, writing, listening and speaking English). Once that's done we'll reserve a place for you until you pay the course fees. Upon receipt of payment your seat is confirmed. You may purchase your course books once the course begins.

Are exam fees included in the course fees?
Sometimes it depends on the type of exam and the level. It is better to enquire at your local center.
