Combine your General English course with a personal interest. Simply exchange English lessons for lessons based on your favourite interest. This makes a special, project-based course which will give you a real sense of achievement (a minimum level of low- intermediate is advised). So instead of 20 lessons English per week you may choose 10 English and 10 Creative Cookery.
- Creative Cookery
- Flower arranging
Try out the combination of English and Cookery – learn how to bake traditional cakes, or perhaps you would prefer to practise flower arranging and learn about flowers, markets and gardens.
