Are there any age restrictions for enrolling in your courses?

To ensure the most effective and suitable learning environment for all our students, we have set specific age requirements for enroling in our various English courses. These age restrictions are designed to align with the content and learning objectives of each course type, as well as to cater to the general maturity and focus levels needed to benefit fully from the curriculum. Here are the age requirements for our course offerings:

General English Group Courses

- Minimum Age: 16 years old. Our General English courses are open to young adults and older, providing a comprehensive curriculum that enhances all areas of English language proficiency.

Business English Courses

- Minimum Age: 17 years old. Given the professional context and content of our Business English courses, participants are required to be at least 17, ensuring they can fully engage with the course material and potentially apply the skills in a professional setting.

IELTS Preparation Courses

- Minimum Age: 16 years old. The IELTS Preparation courses are designed for students who are planning to take the IELTS exam for academic or immigration purposes, suitable for those 16 and older.

Private Classes

- Minimum Age: 5 years old. Private classes are available for students as young as 5, which are considered tutoring sessions. These one-on-one classes are tailored to the specific needs and learning pace of the student, from young learners to adults.

Choosing the Right Course

When selecting a course, it's important to consider not only the age requirement but also the specific learning outcomes and how they align with your or your child's English language goals. For younger learners or those with specific educational needs, private tutoring can offer a more personalised learning experience.

If you have any questions about our courses, age requirements, or need assistance in choosing the most suitable programme, please don't hesitate to contact us. Our team is here to provide guidance and support to ensure you or your child embarks on the most effective and rewarding English learning journey.
