English courses in Bath for adults

General English Language Courses

Whatever your level of English, our General English courses will help you gain confidence and ability as an English speaker. You’ll improve your skills in conversation, listening, writing, reading and grammar. Whilst working interactively you will have plenty of opportunity to practise the skills you are learning.

There are a number of options for studying General English, with both group and individual tuition.

We run the General English 20 and General English 30 classes when there are enough students at the appropriate level to form a group. If there is not a suitable group class available at the time you would like to study, we will tell you when you apply for the course and will offer an alternative. Fees for alternative classes may be different from the group course fee.

Tests for UK Visas, British Citizenship and Leave to Remain

Our English courses can help you prepare for living, working and studying in the UK. We can help you improve your English for the language test required by UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI).

Accent Reduction

Learning the sounds, stress patterns, rhythm and intonation patterns is a separate process from learning the grammar and vocabulary of a language. Our programme is designed to help you improve your pronunciation and give you easily understandable conversational speech.

You will work one-to-one with an experienced teacher, identifying the trouble sounds and patterns, learning and hearing the differences between English sounds, producing and practising the new sounds and finally, incorporating those sounds into conversational speech.
