Our English Courses
TELC organises different courses for different types of audience, whether for students, adults, and business groups.
Our courses are personalised whether you want to study English to take an examination or you just want to take a cultural experience and improve your communication levels.
The study Centre is in the heart of Portsmouth, easily accessible by bus. Our interactive English lessons will run both in comfortable and modern classrooms combined with outdoor and engaging activities.
You will be taught by a native English teacher with a small class group in a relaxing and friendly atmosphere. The course teacher will assess your level of English in the first lesson and work from there to improve your skills. During the course you will also develop your speaking, reading, writing, and listening skills. At the end of the course, you will take a short final assessment to know the improvement achieved.
Your classes will include people who have a similar level of English to you, from different countries. The lessons are generally held in the morning; Monday through Friday, leaving the afternoon for guided tours of museums and local attractions in the city of Portsmouth.
