General English

Helen Connolly - English Teacher

Helen Connolly ►

The general English courses are for all levels. For people, who are starting English from zero to those who want to improve their knowledge of the language for different motives e.g. work, study, tourism, socialising or simple interest.

We provide individual lessons (1-to-1) or small group lessons of maximum 4 students

Lessons are customised as much as possible to the specific needs of the individual student or group, focusing on the areas of greatest difficulty (grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, etc.).

Courses and lessons are organised to stimulate the curiosity and interaction with the student. The strong emphasis placed on conversation and interesting, up-to-date digital support material (texts, explanations, exercises, etc.) make the lessons enjoyable and most importantly effective.

Our lessons and courses are provided by qualified English mother tongue teachers. Our method of teaching is the communicative approach.

In the event of group lessons, each student can connect from the place he/she happens to be in. It is not necessary for students to travel to a common meeting place. Each student must have a computer and a fast broadband connection (at least 8 Mb/s).

Lessons are available from 8:00am to 8:00pm Monday to Friday and from 8:00am to 1:00pm on Saturday (GMT-Dublin time). Please check your corresponding local time at www.timeanddate.com

The levels

The General English course is divided into 6 levels with reference to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) :

● CEFR A1: beginner;

● CEFR A2: elementary;

● CEFR B1: pre-intermediate;

● CEFR B2: intermediate;

● CEFR C1: upper-intermediate;

● CEFR C2: advanced.

The standard duration of each level is 60 hours. The real duration may vary depending on the student’s initial knowledge of English and the speed of student learning.

You can choose the number of lessons you prefer, from a short package of a few hours to a complete course package of sixty hours.
