The General English Courses have a strong emphasis on conversation although the competencies of reading, writing and listening are also practiced.
The curriculum for all courses is well-planned and the emphasis is on making the classes as interesting as possible while improving your level of English as rapidly as possible.
What is your level of English?
The Delfin Placement Tests consists of an assesment of your writing and speaking, and a grammar/vocabulary test. You will have taken your grammar/ vocabulary test before you arrive at the school, and will take your writing and speaking tests on your first day at school. We will use the results from all of these assessments to determine your level of English and to put you into the correct class.
