Mornings

In the mornings you will have 2-3 lessons with a mid-morning break, giving you time to grab a coffee nearby, chat to fellow classmates or ask our staff any questions you might have. Lessons last 50 minutes each.

Every week, you will take a progress test as part of your class, to check how your English skills are developing and evaluate which areas of improvement you need to focus on for the week ahead.


 

Afternoons

If you are taking a course of 25-30 lessons per week, you will also have afternoon classes*. Such courses include intensive General English, IELTS Preparation, General English Plus One-to-One TOEIC, TOEFL, or BULATS preparation, and Cambridge Exam Preparation.

We also run an activity programme including activities such as film nights and trips to museums or art galleries, helping you improve your English language communication skills in a relaxed and informal setting. This is a great opportunity to meet other students and build life-long friendships.

Some activities are free and others incur an additional cost. If you were to take part in all activities throughout the week, you can expect to pay £10-£50 per week.

Explore Manchester

Manchester is a vibrant and exciting urban hub.  Known for its fashionable youth culture, fantastic shopping and important industrial heritage, it also has a world-famous music scene, and is the birthplace of bands such as Joy Division, Oasis, Happy Mondays, Stone Roses and many others.

The city is also well known for its sport, which is why we also offer a special football and English programme for Young Learners in collaboration with City Football Schools, at the home of Manchester City Football Club.

Our exciting social programme reflects the vibrant life of Manchester: cultural events and many sport-related activities, as well as regular restaurant, pub and film nights on the social programme.  We also organise full day weekend excursions in co-operation with the International Society, to places such as York, Liverpool, Chester, Birmingham, Wales and Alton Towers.
