    Customise your General English Courses with New College Group

    Our General English Courses are designed to enhance language abilities and provide access to opportunities to build your confidence and use them in a wide variety of situations.

    The general English course with NCG is adaptable to suit the needs of our individual students. Choose the number of hours a week and the intensity level of your studies and expand your course with one or more of our valuable skills sessions.

    The General English Course + Skills for IELTS

    IELTS is The International English Language Testing System, an internationally recognised professional qualification that will boost academic and career opportunities. If you’re hoping to work in the UK, or attend a UK University in the future, then passing the IELTS exam will provide a valuable addition to your portfolio and will make a great addition to your English language capabilities.

    Skills for IELTS is a suitable extension to the general English course for students who are of intermediate level and above and wish to develop an understanding of the exam techniques required for IELTS.

    The General English Course + Academic English

    The English language needed for studying purposes is somewhat different to the English language needed for everyday conversation. Our academic English class is therefore a recommended add-on for you if you are seeking to attend an English-speaking University in the future.

    This session provides a comprehensive introduction to the essential skills required by Universities including reference and research techniques.

    The General English Course + Business English

    Adding Business English to your language repertoire can improve your career prospects. The class builds upon your general English abilities to give you the knowledge and confidence required for effective communication in the professional workplace.

    This course extension is perfect for students with high flying career aspirations to enhance their terminology through reading, writing, listening and speaking to prepare themselves for fluid communication in business contexts.

    The General English Course + FUN!

    Your experience at New College Group is important to us. We want to make sure that you receive the highest standards of English language education while having a fun, sociable experience along the way.

    In order to make this possible, we invite students to customise their general English course with elements that appeal to their own personal interests. Passionate about football? Kick off a footie themed dialogue. If you love fashion, then dress up your conversational skills around this topic. Hungry to learn how to cook up discussion about food? We can help!

    Simply let us know which language topics you’d be keen to advance and we can focus areas of your programme to suit this, giving you plenty of inspiration to spark an engaging conversation.
