Learn English in London – 30+ Adult English Course

Tti 30 English course

Who is this course (English for Adults) for?

This 30+ Adult English course was designed with the more mature learner in mind. It caters for you, who has different learning objectives to younger students, either for professional or personal reasons.

What will I learn?

In the morning, you will join a general English class appropriate to your level to ensure that you continue to receive the language input you need to make steady progress with your current ability. You will learn the grammar and vocabulary necessary for you to progress in your English using a tried and tested syllabus, adapted where necessary for the individual needs of the students in the class.

Then, in the afternoon you will join the dedicated 30+ module where you will study with over-30s of intermediate level and above. As well as improving your language skills, you will engage in a range of important topics from British politics to current affairs and arts, to name a few. The syllabus of the class is negotiated for a more personalised approach, which allows students some input on what they wish to cover week by week.

Regular speakers with Q&A sessions for authentic speaker interaction. Guests have included museum curators, journalists, actors and entrepreneurs.

What one of our Tti teachers has to say…

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.
