Individual classes Single individual lessons of tuition can be booked at 50 £. The combination of group and individual lessons is highly recommended. Individual lessons will encourage you to actively speak the foreign language and will offer you the opportunity to discuss individual problems and weaknesses.
Comments about courses: There are no group course start dates for A1 (Beginner) on the General English Intensive course in 2017. If a student has booked a General English Intensive course and we find that their level is of Level A1, they will be moved to a one-to-one course of greater or equal value to what has been paid for.

Additional information
Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Definitely, future students should not miss the excursion to the Stormont.
Other comments: Most of the students were from Spain and Italy. During free time they only spoke in their own language. It would be better if the students would be from different locations.
