Our English and Communication skills offers a flexible general English language course with a strong focus on communication skills and the opportunity to study in Cambridge and experience life in a UK university.
The course offers 15 hours of language and communication skills and 5 hours of specialist subjects, plus a social programme that includes weekly full and half day excursions. There will also be some free time to explore the beautiful and historic city of Cambridge.
We offer the option of either attending a summer or winter programme and you have the flexibility to choose from 2-10 weeks of study.
Classes will focus on a range of general English skills including fluency and pronunciation, listening, reading and writing skills through which you can build up your grammar and vocabulary. The specialist courses follow two pathways, one that focuses on learning about life in Britain and the second on exam technique.
The purpose of this course is very much focused on communication and feeling confident in using English – classes are lively and interactive. You’ll also have lots of opportunities to practice your English outside of the classroom as our social programme is a key part of the course, allowing you to practice your English in a fun and friendly environment.
