Client Needs Analysis

Each client completes a detailed Needs Analysis prior to coming to CEW.  Acting on the information provided in this Needs Analysis, the Academic Manager works in conjunction with the tutor in order to design a syllabus which is tailor-made for the client.

Before you start your course you will do a Written placement test via a link sent to you and you will do a short skype Oral Placement Test in order to assess your level of Oral English and are then assigned to the appropriate class. CEW will email you the week before you arrive to give you all the information about your class.

Courses are held at all levels from Elementary (A1) to Advanced (C1).
