I have been teaching English for nearly 5 years and for me the best thing about teaching the 30+ course is that together we can discover this city’s culture and the influences other cultures have had upon it through our weekly excursions around London. Also, the students are from different backgrounds and professions which allows us to talk about so many diverse topics including politics, the arts and global issues. Our conversations are always dynamic.
30+ Adult English Courses
We know you are young at heart and our 30+ course allows you to study and socialise together with like-minded people – without any teenagers! Study 20 lessons per week or more at our school in lively and fascinating Camden, close to Central London.
WHY CHOOSE OUR GENERAL ENGLISH COURSE?
- A tailor-made programme just for you. Our enthusiastic qualified teachers will create your course through a negotiated syllabus for a more personalised programme.
- Maximum 12 students per class, average 9
- Weekly class trips to London’s museums, parks and other places of interest with your teacher
- Regular speakers with Q&A sessions for authentic speaker interaction. Guests have included museum curators, journalists, actors and entrepreneurs.
30+ COMBINATION COURSE
We recommend our popular 30+ Combination Course for a more intensive programme. This combines the enjoyment of learning and communicating in a group, with the focus of individual tuition. You will study in the group class in the morning and you have the flexibility of choosing when to take take your private lessons.
