Schedule

One 2-hour evening class per week, and a minimum of 2 hours of independent learning between classes.

Dates: Language Development courses are 9 - 10 weeks in length. Start dates are listed for each course in the tables below.

We offer the opportunity to sign up for spare places on our 18 week Progression courses which started in October. Step 2 corresponds to the second half of these courses (sessions 10 – 18). However as tuition resumes in the first week of term (week commencing 13th January), people registering on these courses will effectively join at week 9 and receive 10 weeks of tuition – this allows for a smoother transition as the first week usually includes some recapping of the previous term.
