The Intensive General English Course is suitable for students who want to maximise on work carried out in the Standard Course. Morning lessons follow the same programme as the Standard Course from Monday to Friday (09.30 -13.00 in the UK or 09.00-13.00 in Ireland).
There are also three afternoon lessons a week Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday (14.00 -16.30 in the UK or 14.00-16.00 in Ireland) which are focused on improving the students’ speaking skills and ability to communicate through English. In the afternoon lessons, students have the opportunity to improve their communicative proficiency through discussions, topical debates, authentic materials and use of portable and static technology. Course content is partly negotiated and partly based on TED lectures.
