The General English course at Headington is suitable for all English Levels. From Beginner to Advanced
Before the summer, your Admissions Manager will send your child(ren) an online placement test to complete. This will help us to ensure that your child is placed into a class most suited to their level of English.
To motivate our students, we always aim to maintain a high but attainable level of challenge. Although the course is quite challenging, the teacher can adapt the level of difficulty based on the class’s confidence with English and capacity to soak up new information. At SBC all students are supported at all times to feel comfortable in the group.
When our students graduate at the end of the programme, each student will receive a certificate of completion.
Students receive a wide variety of SBC handouts created by our in-house academic team.
Notebooks and folders are given, but it’s advised that each student should bring something to write with.
Although there is no pre-reading required to take the course, it would be beneficial for students to keep developing their English to feel even more prepared.
“I have found the social side of SBC really amazing. It is really easy to make friends here from all over the world and I have plenty of new connections”
