Thank you ‘ELC’ for the period I spent with you. It was one of the best experience of my life. I would like to greet Mr McBurney and fantastic teachers when I return to Reading.

These courses are designed for students and mature students wishing to improve their English language skills for general use.

Morning classes: development of speaking, listening, reading, writing, pronunciation practice and vocabulary as well as relevant grammar. You will take an Entrance Test during your first morning, to assess your English language level and then you will be placed in the appropriate group.

A Progress Test may be taken and must be passed before you move up a level. Alternatively you may be upgraded, by special recommendation, from your teacher.

Homework will be given at all levels to encourage self-study and academic discipline.
