Our approach to the Intensive General English curriculum’s design and delivery is to help students improve their English language ability with the addition of an online support system.  Our online system allows students access practice activities, progress tests anywhere at any time.  We recognise that all English language learners learn in different ways, progress at different rates and have different goals and we believe our curriculum supported by online learning allows all students to meet their own individual language learning goals.
