Course Description

General English classes run in the mornings at a variety of levels. You are assessed at the beginning of your course and placed in the most appropriate class for your level.

The syllabus and teaching materials are aligned to the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference) and cover the four skills of listeningspeakingreading and writing along with vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation activities.

Classes are communicativelearner-centredinteractive and engaging. A wide range of activity types are used and include individual, pair and group work, projects, presentations and discussions as well as listening and writing tasks.

Learners are encouraged to build a portfolio of work that they complete over the course of their study at Foyle International. The portfolio will consist of their project work, continual assessments and samples of course work tasks.


5, 10 or 15 hours per week 

Extra English is available in the afternoons at a variety of levels to supplement morning General English programmes and provide an intensive study option. The extra English module can cover either additional general English or exam preparation for any of the Cambridge, IELTS, Language Cert exams or the Trinity suite of exams.

Lessons are taken with a personal tutor on an individual basis, and can focus on your areas of difficulty or weakness. A programme of lessons can be tailored according to your own preferences and needs, and you can discuss and decide on class content along with your tutor.
