ESL Program Introduction
We offer a range of courses, but will try our best to accommodate you should you wish for a slightly different schedule. Students are evaluated upon arrival and placed in a class depending on their needs and abilities. Our teachers are constantly assessed and receive training on a regular basis. Our small class sizes ensure that each student receives plenty of individual attention. Each lesson is 50 minutes long, and class levels range from elementary to advanced.
We offer general English, academic English, business English and exam preparation classes, as well as exciting package programmes (comprised of English classes in the morning and surfing/kayaking/scuba-diving/shark cage-diving in the afternoon) and cultural immersion classes.
