General English Language Courses

Perfect for those wanting to improve their general speaking, reading, writing and listening comprehension skills. Experienced English speakers will teach you grammar and pronunciation and help to expand your vocabulary to prepare you for more complex scenarios. The goal of these courses is to raise your English proficiency level to a point where you can discuss a wide range of general topics like news, art, study and travel. These courses can be combined with preparation for the IELTS or TOEFL exams.

'English for Business' Courses

These courses are designed to provide you with the English language skills to excel in specific professions. If you need English proficiency for medicine, law, finance, industry, teaching or some other profession, these profession-focused courses are ideal. Classes are held in small groups for effective learning and can also be combined with preparation for the IELTS or TOEFL exams.

Preparation for IELTS and TOEFL Exams

These are two of the world’s most popular English qualifications, so passing them is a great way to prove your English proficiency to institutions which may require it. A preparation course for IELTS or TOEFL takes a week or more and is an important step for foreigners who plan to pursue higher education or work in English-speaking countries.

Courses for the Whole Family

Courses which allow mixed groups of adults and children are a fantastic opportunity to combine a family holiday to England with an English language course. Learning is made fun for children to ensure their engagement, while adults learn using tried and tested methods designed to accommodate different levels of language proficiency.

Structure of Language Courses

Classes consist of small groups organised by the type of language training and the level of proficiency. The courses are specifically designed for the most effective learning possible and group learning can be complemented with one-to-one focused sessions.

Classes can be held in the morning, afternoon or evening from Monday to Friday, with weekends off. Usually, courses include 15-20 hours of tuition per week, though more intense courses can have a weekly tuition time of 25-30 hours

For those unable to attend classes because of work or other study commitments, Astra Education will find a private teacher who can work with your schedule. This is the most effective way to learn since you will be following an individual programme specifically designed for your language level and goals. You may even choose to combine these private lessons with group study.

Astra Education will find a language course that suits your goals and preferences. All language schools are accredited by the British Council.
