English as a Foreign Language (Ages 12-18)

Develop your language and exam preparation skills so students can take that next step towards success!

 

Preparing for your future.

Our English as a Foreign Language programme is designed for young learners aged 12-17 who don’t speak English at home.

This programme will develop core English language skills through theme-based activities and interactive learning – an effective way to learn language quickly and successfully. Students will be assessed according to their English language confidence level, and supported in line with their specific areas for focus.

We also aims to maximise students’ potential for exam success by preparing them with new tools and techniques to tackle a wide range of questions. Young learners can put these skills into practice by taking an internationally-recognised Cambridge English exam (A2 Key, B1 Preliminary, B2 First or C1 Advanced) to certify their English language achievement and qualification.
