Q&A - Questions and answers about Brighton

  • The standard course is a general English course and it focuses on all aspects of the language and you would definitely benefit from attending this type of programme but it is not an exam preparation course.
    As your level of English is advanced and your goal is passing the Cambridge Advanced Exam, I would definitely recommend opting for the CAE preparation course.
    Gosia Mazur, LanguageCourse.Net - Feb 22, 2024
  • I think that in your case a good option would be General English. These courses focus on all aspects of the language: writing, reading, grammar, conversation, listening comprehension, etc.
    A standard course consists of 20 lessons per week, Monday through Friday. More and less intensive options are also available.
    Gosia Mazur, LanguageCourse.Net - Dec 28, 2022
  • Lunch is not included in the price. Parents may collect their children for lunch together or provide a packed lunch for the school's supervised on-site lunch sessions.
    Ana Carolina Dos Santos, LanguageCourse.Net - Dec 23, 2022
  • At the time of writing, the schools Loxdale English Centre and BLC International run a junior programme (Winter Program) in the month of January.
    Ana Carolina Dos Santos, LanguageCourse.Net - Dec 08, 2022
  • The minimum required English level to book the IELTS Preparation Exam in Brighton is B1. As an alternative, you can combine General English lessons with private lessons focused on the IELTS exam. Private lessons allow the student to focus on the missing links in their language acquisition or on a particular subject or vocabulary.
