Do you already have a level of English at B1 or above, but feel you need to gain confidence in speaking and listening in particular? Perhaps you are already around C1 level but are all-too aware of the vast array of spoken and written language still to learn. You want to push on towards Cambridge Advanced or Proficiency level. If so, English Boost is for you. Designed for learners at B1-C1+ levels, this course runs over two weeks, but can also be taken for one, should you prefer (£370). The core of the course is the 16.5 teaching hours per week, in addition to which we provide a range of tours and activities to keep you highly engaged and talking. We offer a minimum of two two different classes for Intermediate and Advanced levels based on your own assessment of your level. In addition to the cultural visits that form a part of the course hours, we have social events and visits in the evening and at the weekend giving you even more chance to interact with your classmates and tutors.

Our main aims in class are:

  • to boost your grasp of everyday spoken English
  • to help you get better at speaking about specific topics
  • to provide lots of engaging spoken and written texts for you to interact with
  • to turn your own output to further input.

Each course is unique because we offer you a list of topics to choose from before you arrive and work with you on the course to follow the group’s interests. We also select and use all our own material rather than placing you in a class with students following a coursebook. This means that you are sure to meet an abundance of vocabulary and grammar. And, of course, we teach the language you are trying to say – as well as providing opportunities to you revise and learn it.


* There is a registration fee of £80 on top of all prices that covers all materials, admin and entrance fees for timetabled activities.

For those with a A1/A2 level, try Basic English, which runs at the same time as English Boost.
