My teacher was always ready to answer my questions and I even had some time face to face with her so she could give me some feedback on my language skills

general english language course

When students choose General English with ATC Language Schools they will develop their overall level of English, grow in confidence in communicating in English and learn to use English in their daily lives, outside of the classroom.

All students will take an online placement test before they begin their course. The level test will cover the students’ understanding of grammar and vocabulary. ATC academic staff will also arrange a speaking and listening assessment before arrival, together these will confirm the students’ level, enabling the academic team to place the student at the correct level.

Students will also be invited to join an academic induction where a member of the ATC academic team will provide an overview of the programme, timetable and contact details for each department.

The General English syllabus for each level is designed over 13 weeks, working alongside a course book which each student will have. Teachers will also use additional material from a variety of media sources to supplement and support the lessons.


Students will focus on grammar & vocabulary, listening & speaking, reading & writing in both lessons, ensuring a spread of skills and language points across both lessons.

Each week, teachers provide an overview of the syllabus to students which includes that week’s learning outcomes.  Students will take a weekly test and every second week the teacher will carry out a speaking or writing assessment including individualised verbal and written feedback to highlight student’s areas for further development.

Teachers at ATC Language Schools use the communicative approach, taking a learner-centred approach with a strong emphasis on communicative tasks. Students use meaningful and authentic language to promote learning in a motivating and engaging setting. Students work on a variety of interactive and collaborative pair and group activities to meet daily learning outcomes. In our Task Based Learning lessons, students will use the target language to communicate with their classmates and carry out a task to achieve a specific outcome. Students develop their language skills through their usage of English where the emphasis is on achieving a goal while building confidence and increasing motivation as they work collaborative with their peers.

All teachers with ATC Language Schools are degree qualified and all hold an internationally accredited English language teaching certificate.
