Who is this course for?

This course is for anyone who wants to rapidly improve their English by staying with an experienced English tutor, while also attending group lessons and social trips at the school.

Learning outcomes

Take this course to:

  • Communicate more fluently
  • Improve your accuracy
  • Use strategies and techniques to develop all four skills – listening, reading, writing and speaking (including pronunciation)
  • Feel more confident in English-speaking environments and interacting with other English speakers
  • Develop the areas you need the most help in Excel in topics of interest to you.

Course content

You will have three hours of morning lessons every day Monday to Friday (15 hours per week) at IH London. The class will have students at a similar English level as you, and the teacher will have regular one-to-one feedback sessions with you to set learning targets.

During these classes you will:

  • work with other students and engage in activities such as role-plays, pair work, and class discussions
  • learn, review and consolidate new language everyday
  • get regular homework to help you review and check your understanding of what you have learned in class
  • Develop skills and techniques across all four language areas: reading, writing, speaking and listening


You will also have 10 hours of one-to-one personalised English tuition with your host tutor. Your afternoon one-to-one classes will give you the opportunity to further develop the English you learned that morning, to focus on topics of interest, or to give you extra help with topics you are struggling with.

  • Additional speaking and listening practice
  • Help with homework and additional assignments
  • Extra support in the areas you need it most
  • The chance to consolidate, review and revise at your own pace
  • Receive Student Progress Reports to help you focus your learning.
