Our language centre

Taking an exam to demonstrate your ability to speak English is a splendid idea. But what's best is to be fully prepared to succeed! 

At our centre, you can follow both preparation courses and English lessons.

English lessons:

As we mentioned above, you can take English lessons at our centre. Here is a list of the prices and the general outline of the course: 

  • Group lessons: 2000 MDL for 44 hours (a group of 6 students minimum)
  • Semi-individual lessons: 2600 MDL for 30 hours (a group of 3 to 5 students)
  • Individual lessons: 1900 MDL for 10 hours (1-2 students) 

You will be able to learn English and progress through the CEFR (Common European Framework for languages) scale, using Cambridge methods based on the such series of books as face2face, MORE!, English in Mind. The methods we use are adapted to our learners' age and areas of interest. 

The levels that we use to structure our courses by are the following: 

Starter: A1.1; A1.2; A1.3

Elementary: A2.1; A2.2; A2.3

Pre-Intermediate: B1.1; B1.2

Intermediate: B1.3; B1.4

Upper-Intermediate: B2.1; B2.2; B2.3; B2.4

For each course of 30 or 44 hours (depending on the group), you will cover a sub-level. That means that if you want to achieve an A1 level, you will have to follow three courses for the sub-levels A1.1, A1.2 and A1.3.

The courses have been structured so as to facilitate a learner-centered environment and to help you grow steadily, but surely towards your goal.

When you come to register, we will offer you the possibility to take a placement test, in order to evaluate your level of English and make sure you are following the lessons corresponding to your level. 

Registrations are possible anytime during the year.

The books we use in our lessons are available at the library called Educational centre-International Bookshop, located on Strada columna, 72/3. Here is the list of books you need according to the level of your course:
