General English Courses - EC - San Diego

Are you looking to improve your English skills, then we recommend you try one of our Standard, Semi-Intensive or Intensive English courses. These courses are available to students of all skill levels, from beginners to advance. A placement test will be administered to gauge your skill level so that we can place you in the optimal skill level that meets your needs. Furthermore, tests will be given throughout the courses to ensure you are maintaining an adequate level of progression. The maximum amount of students in any given course will be 12. However, during the off-season, our class sizes can be expected to have fewer students. Our courses will start every Monday and will have a minimum duration of one week. Generally, our classes are held in the mornings or mornings and afternoons, which depends on the chosen course (i.e. Standard, Semi-Intensive or Intensive Course). In times where we have a high number of students participating in our courses, the classes can be mixed between mornings and afternoons (i.e. Tuesday & Thursday mornings and Monday, Wednesday, and Friday afternoons). Regardless, we will try our best to meet the schedule that suits your needs.

The Standard, Semi-Intensive, and Intensive English courses cover all basic elements of the English language. The courses are designed to give a practical understanding and give you the ability to apply your skills in real-life situations. Furthermore, they will focus on the four pillars of English: reading, writing, speaking, and comprehension. The course will greatly improve your comprehension and speaking abilities of the English language. On top of the reading materials used in the course, our teachers use other audio and video materials to help illustrate lessons.

The Standard English course consists of 20 lessons of 45 minutes per week. If you wish to achieve more intense results we recommend our Semi-Intensive English course with 24 weekly lessons of 45 minutes or a more Intensive English course with 30 lessons of 45 minutes.

Additional Tuition (optional)

If you are on a limited schedule or would prefer a more individual experience private lessons are available. The benefit of having a private lesson is that it can be tailor-made to meet your specific needs. You can choose from 6 to 10 45 minute sessions and can be combined with our Standard, Semi-Intensive, and Intensive English courses.
