    General English

    General English courses are for anyone who wants to improve their English. Perhaps you want to communicate with people in the UK? Maybe you need a higher level of English to begin an Exam Preparation course? Or are you simply interested in the language? Whether you are a complete beginner or an advanced learner, we have a General English course to suit you.

    At Alpha Omega College, we want you to feel confident when you use English. Therefore, our General English courses focus on all aspects of English. These include:

    • Listening
    • Speaking
    • Pronunciation
    • Reading
    • Writing
    • Grammar
    • Vocabulary
    • British culture



    At Alpha Omega College, we offer six levels of General English. These include:

    • Beginner
    • Elementary
    • Pre-Intermediate
    • Intermediate
    • Upper-Intermediate
    • Advanced

    When you first come to Alpha Omega College, we will give you a free placement test to place you in the correct level.



    At Alpha Omega College, we believe the best way to learn English is in a relaxed environment, where lessons are engaging. In class, you will follow a course aimed at developing your speaking, writing, reading and listening skills, as well as learning grammar and vocabulary. Since variety keeps lessons stimulating, classes tend to have two teachers; each teacher brings their own experience and materials to help you improve.


    Our teachers are all enthusiastic and dedicated to your success. They are qualified ESL professionals, trained in the latest teaching practices. Many of them have taught all over the world and have years of experience.



    We use the latest materials from the most respected English Language publishers. You will be taught using a book which comes accompanied by CDs and a DVD, as well as interactive and online activities. Teachers also make use of data projectors and Power Point to generate and maintain the interest of their learners.   

    Course books are FREE for students who enrol on a full-length course.



    At Alpha Omega College, we are confident your English will improve. Throughout your course, you can expect homework to reinforce what you have learnt. You will also receive regular tests. This will enable you to monitor your progress, and alert your teachers to areas you need more practice with. What’s more, every month you will have a tutorial with your teacher to discuss your progress. At the end of the course, you will receive a free end-of-course certificate.
