Intensive course in London

An Intensive Language Course at Edwards Language School caters to students aiming for faster and more comprehensive English language proficiency. This course is perfect for those who are willing to dedicate more time to their studies.

By enrolling in the intensive course, you can enhance your English language skills in a shorter span. The added lessons allow for more opportunities to practice using the language effectively while still leaving ample time for leisure activities in the afternoons.

The course structure involves four daily lessons, which mirror the content of the Standard English Course, focusing on integrated skills work throughout the set course book. The last two lessons of each day adopt a more flexible approach, with no fixed course book. These lessons often revolve around themes like listening, speaking, and further exploration of topics introduced in the morning sessions.
