If you want to improve your English language ability, the General English course at Think English is the right choice for you. You can learn through engaging virtual lessons from wherever you are based in the world, or you can learn in the classroom at our Manchester centre.
The General English course will develop your English reading, writing, speaking and listening. In the process, you will improve your pronunciation, grammar and conversation skills.
You will be taught by expert native English teachers. It is our aim that we help you develop a natural and accurate style of English pronunciation. Your English will be ready for the vocabulary and expressions common to everyday life.
By the end of the General English course, we want our students to be able to become more confident when speaking English and be able to communicate their ideas clearly.
Our tutors and staff strive to create a positive and encouraging learning environment. We keep the individual’s learning experience at the heart of what we do and support learning with technology.
In the lessons, you will:
