General English

Which class will I be in?

When you arrive and enrol at the school you will be given a placement test, which will determine which class/classes you will be able to attend. The placement test includes a grammar,writing and speaking test. The staff and teachers will look at your overall results and decide which level(s) to put you in. You may be put into two different levels. For example if your spoken English is good but you have a low score in the grammar part of the test we may decide to include Pre-Intermediate and Intermediate classes so that you benefit from two levels.

Beginner and Elementary

The school does not run courses for beginners or at the elementary level although private one-to-one tuition may be available. Please contact us for more information.


This level enables people to gain basic English skills, understand short notices and simple spoken directions, communicate in familiar situations.


At this level, learners should be able to cope linguistically in a range of every day situations which require use of English in their own or foreign country, in contact with native and non-native speakers of the language.

First Certificate

Learners should have a wide grasp of vocabulary, be able to construct an argument, use appropriate communication styles for a variety of situations, be aware of register and of the conventions of politeness and degrees of formality as they are expressed through language.


It indicates a high level of language competence for candidates wishing to use English for professional or study purposes and communicate confidently in most daily situations & work.


This is the highest level course which shows progress beyond a good knowledge of vocabulary and grammar and the ability to use the language in real contexts. Ideal for those seeking to work or study abroad, or to develop a career which requires language skills.

Student Testimonials

The English Language Centre was a great experience. There were many things that make me say that. At the beginning the welcome was wow, amazing as a foreigner in a new country. The manger and the teachers were friendly, lovely, and they have the sense of responsibility for teaching us. I had the opportunity to learn a lot of words every day at the school, and then after one month I realized that I picked up a lot of English words and expressions, which was incredible for me. These people aren’t just teaching you English they are teaching you how to be confident and strong when you speak a different language. Here I am now, I have the ability to speak English confidently, strongly, and comfortably. One more important thing to not forget, I had the chance to meet many students from different countries around the world and I’m still in touch with them. I had also learned about cultural diversity and different traditions in many countries through this unique experience. That was amazing, I’d really recommend The English Language Centre for anyone who wants to learn English.
