IMG_0421   General Language Courses

Cork English World courses are designed to provide students with the language skills needed to communicate effectively and confidently in English.  Our Courses also provide students with the skills and strategies necessary for learning English outside the classroom.

“Our Academic Manager is always available to help and advise students who are encountering difficulties with their language acquisition.”

Our General English courses are available all year round and are multinational.  Students can enrol for any number of weeks with a minimum stay of 1 week.  Courses are of 15 or 20 hours per week, which allows time for private study and afternoon activities.  24 hour courses are designed for students who wish to follow a more intensive English course.

On their first day of tuition students do a short 3-part  Placement Test (Speaking, Listening and Writing) in order to assess their level of English and are then assigned to the appropriate class.   

Courses are held at all levels from Elementary (A1) to Advanced (C2).  The Academic Manager closely monitors the progress of the students by communicating with the tutors on a daily basis.

On full time courses you will be provided with a coursebook for your entry level class, when you move up a level you will have to buy a new book.  During the course you will have access to our extensive reference library.  We also use a wide range of authentic material in the classroom which helps the student to extend their learning beyond the classroom.

Monthly progress meetings with the Academic Manager are arranged for all students who are on courses of 4 weeks or more.

Students can do an Exit Test to see their own improvement at the end of their stay.

Full-time and part-time courses do not include bank charges, bus pass, leisure programme and health  insurance. However we offer the following: free Wi-Fi internet access, English test & interview with highly trained teachers, welcome pack and a map of Cork. free parking (evening).
