What is the difference between intensive general English courses and general English courses? General English courses are usually held twice per week and each lesson is 90 min, while the entire course takes three months. Intensive general English courses are for people who are in a rush and want to learn fast. During the intensive course classes are held four times per week and one lesson is 135 min, while the course takes only one month.
Intensive English courses are taught by our most experienced teachers, colourful, interesting, diplomatic, and delicate individuals who help each and everyone in the group to open up, spot everyone’s mistakes, and give advice on further improvement.
Language is a living organism and you need time to adopt it. The most common mistake is to rush and punish yourself for things you cannot remember and to start thinking less of yourself. Everyone has their own pace and that is totally normal. You need to be interested in language, be curious as a child, and find your own strategy for memorising things. You absolutely should not rush yourself, because in such way you will only lower your self-esteem. Trust your teacher, share your fears, and let them guide you forward.
