General English courses

At Connect to English you can study with us on our General English courses in Colchester.  Whether you want to learn English for pleasure, study or travel, our expertise means you can learn in the best way for your needs.

How will I study?

You can choose to study on a standard text-book-based course or you can have your course especially  designed for you allowing you to focus on areas in which you most need to study.

On our General English courses you will practise all four essential language skills of reading, writing, speaking and listening.  All lessons will focus on real English in real situations using the most up-to date authentic methods and materials.

Where can I study?

Lessons can be one-to-one at your home or place of work or taken in small groups and will allow you plenty of opportunity to practice conversation skills.  Vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation will also be practised.

Your study may lead to a recognized qualification* or you may take a General English course leading to our own Quality Approved Certificate in English.

Whatever you decide, you can rest assured that your English language learning is in expert hands.
