|General English language courses at our English Language school in New York focus on learning through communication and practicing real-life English both in and out of the classroom. We believe in an integrated approach to language learning, incorporating speaking, writing, reading, listening, grammar, pronunciation and vocabulary into every lesson with particular emphasis on practicing language in depth through conversation and writing.
General English courses at Fifth Avenue Campus are offered with 20, 22 and 28 lessons a week with morning and afternoon classes. One lesson = 50 minutes. Maximum 12 students in the group.
At the Fifth Avenue Campus, we also offer a special English for Beginners course (20 lessons per week, am). Course duration: 4 weeks. This course is for students who have not studied English before, or those who want to start again from the very beginning. The course may also form part of a longer program, with students transferring to elementary level at the end of 4 weeks.
You can also combine General English with English for Business, English for Tourism and English for Art and Design. Intermediate level or above is required.
Our Our International Semester General English Courses are designed for long-term English language training - ideal if you plan to study English for 24 weeks or more.
