To prepare you for academic success abroad, we offer seminars in four key areas of English—the core knowledge you need to achieve your goals.

Our curriculum and teaching methods have been tested and perfected over 15 years and have proven effective for hundreds of Asian students. With only eight seminar participants, you enjoy the kind of personal attention that is usually only possible in expensive one-to-one tutorials, while at the same time experiencing the benefits of co-operative group learning.

Pictured are just some of the textbooks we use.
