The General English course at LTC LTC

Our General English course focuses on establishing a foundation in the language. The course runs at a very good pace and mainly caters for those who are serious about improving their English.

The material used in this course is sourced from one of the leading universities in the world.  It covers the four main language skills; speaking, listening, reading and writing.  These language skills play an important part in developing as a learner, and the classroom activities are varied, so that each area is equally developed.


Our classes have a maximum of 8 students, which allows for a fair opportunity for each student to practice their speaking in the classroom.

Students do a lot of pair work and group activities to allow for peer learning, and the students also receive personalized feedback from teachers.


Audio playback allows for students to practice their listening skills.  From these exercises, the student has a chance to listen for the gist, as well as for details in a recording.

To take part in classroom discussions, students have an opportunity to interact through listening and responding to questions from their classmates and their teachers.
