General English Courses

With us you can study one-to-one or in small groups. With lots of opportunity for practice with experienced qualified teachers, we place great emphasis on helping you acquire and develop real communication skills. Both our one-to-one and small group  courses are based on active conversation with relevant and enjoyable course material. We focus on real-life situations and contexts which leads to impressive results.

Before you start we will give you a free full assessment of your current language skills so we can place you on the course most suitable for your needs. Good quality teaching is very important for us and our aim is to provide you with the best.


With one-to-one you select either a native English teacher or a Hungarian speaking teacher with native like English. All our teachers are qualified and they can help you with your needs. Before you start we consult you about your goals and target your studies accordingly. We adjust your course of studies to your individual needs. We can help you with social English or for exams. We can also target towards different types of business.


We cover from Elementary to Proficiency through our series of group courses; some are offered as two sessions of 90 minutes a week; but most are one 90 minute lesson a week. Each of our core range of courses consists of 30 x 90 minute lessons. Each one – from Elementary to Upper Intermediate - is designed to lift students through one of the six levels of English.

The classroom time particularly focuses on oral and listening skills. It is particularly aimed at those who wish to use English in an international environment but they also are very successful at preparing Students for examinations. We strive to make the learning process effective and enjoyable.

Generally our language groups have no more than 6 in a class.

Advanced English Club

The Advanced English Club is especially designed to extend and maintain the English language skills of those who have already reached an Advanced level of English; the Common European Framework Languages skill level C2 or who are at C1 and wish to progress to the Proficiency C2 level.

With a native English speaking teacher the course is designed to reflect on English culture as well as the language. Its content has the objective of stimulating further development and little concession is made in the content for those for whom English is not a first language. It is particularly aimed at those who need to use English in an international environment.

As students should have already reached an advanced skill in grammar the main focus is on extending vocabulary and improving oral and listening skills. As with our other courses there are no books to buy. Each week students are sent a pre-lesson paper which covers such diverse themes as Business, Art and Architecture, Music, Travel, Food and Drink. We also include special festive sections. 

The 90 minute sessions are opportunities for discovery. A friendly atmosphere is important with the development and maintenance of vocabulary, oral and listening skills as the major aim. Writing skills can also be developed through extra exercises with personal feedback.

Silver Premium

Learn English and  make new acquaintances. With excellent teachers and a great atmosphere, a pleasant pastime! We have no age limit!

The Silver Premium Club lessons have a maximum of 8 people. The curriculum is written specifically for people of 50 years and over.

There are many reasons why learning English is popular among this age group. There are those who want to travel in retirement years, and since English is the world language you can communicate wherever you go. Some people need the English language to talk to their  children and grandchildren abroad. At the same time learning English is an excellent intellectual exercise, a pleasant pastime and a great opportunity to make new friends.

On all of our courses we focus on student’s needs. We find with us most students naturally progress through what the British Council call the “Intermediate Plateau” to advanced level. We also hold a special bridging course to help students who have been studying elsewhere to fill in the gaps in their studies.

We use the most up to date material available and send it to you in pdf format. We make wide use of audio and video material and our team has a lot of international experience. We have been very successful in helping those who have struggled to learn elsewhere.
