Flexible Intensive

Our Flexible Intensive model helps you to learn new concepts whenever you can and immediately practice those concepts in interactive activities. Then you consolidate it by applying them in real teacher-led conversation classes and lessons (class size is max. 5 students). Then at last the teacher confirms your achievements before you are moving onto higher levels and more complex concepts. This method is based on the approach of ongoing encouragement, motivation and guidance that you need to leap forward in a quick pace.
We deliver a flexible course curriculum in live & online formats so you can do the learning part of your studies at your own speed, in your own time, outside the classroom. Then you can interact with your teacher in small classes and practice what you learnt in live conversations and practical tasks.

Start dates:

  • Every Monday all year round.

  • Levels from beginner (A1) to advanced (B2)
  • Duration from 2 to 24 Weeks
