The General English Academic Year / Short-Term General English Programme is a multi-purpose programme for students, who wish to improve their all-round English, focusing on the four skills; speaking, listening, reading and writing.


Who should choose the Academic Year Programme

Who should choose the Short-Term Programme

The programme is divided into multiple levels, from Beginner to Advanced.  Each student is assessed regularly throughout their course with an IELTS-style test carried out every 6 weeks.  Participants can choose our Intensive Programme (20 hours per week) or our Standard Programme (15 hours per week).




Teachers use the communicative method underpinned by clear learning outcomes within the four skills of speaking, listening, reading and writing.  While the classroom is friendly and informal, the Chapterhouse Ethos values success through motivation, goal setting, and achievement (i.e. hard work!)

Focusing on learning strategies is a key element of the programme.  (Learning to Learn Module).
