English for Family and Friends

<a href=''>People photo created by pch.vector -</a>

English classes for family and friends are a great way to learn English as a second language. With this new program, we will team your family (and/or friends) with a private English-language instructor who will customize the experience to your group’s specific needs and schedule.

One of the biggest challenges of learning a language is the lack of opportunity to use the language. By enrolling in the Family and Friends English program, you will be able to practice what you have learned in each class on a daily basis. You will be able to repeat and practice the exercises done in class, and help each other as you learn.

Please note: This program is for parents and children 12 years of age and above.

Who should take this course?

This course is for a group of family and friends who want to develop and improve their English skills to communicate better. The classes include reading, writing, grammar, and listening and speaking skills. Our faculty will tailor the program to your group’s unique needs.
