Course Objectives

Our General English courses are designed to improve students’ skills in all skill areas; reading, writing, listening and speaking.  You will learn useful vocabulary and grammar every day to help you gain the confidence to communicate in real life situations.  

Each class has clear objectives to help you reach your language learning goals and your teacher will set structured tasks to support these objectives.  Our teachers will monitor your progress closely, giving personal feedback and correction, where necessary, to help you become more accurate and more fluent when communicating.  

Course books are used and adapted to meet students’ needs.


We offer General English courses at the following levels:

Beginner (A1)

Elementary (A2)

Pre-Intermediate (B1)

Intermediate (B1)

Upper-Intermediate (B2)

Advanced (C1)


If you are a new Leeds Language Academy student, you will take our Quick Placement Test (a multiple choice test of basic grammar and vocabulary), complete a writing task and have a short interview to assess your level, and then you will be assigned to a class. The interview can be done ahead of time on Skype, but the written test can only be done in person at the school.


Homework and Assessment

Students are expected to do one hour of homework/self-study each day. Tests are done regularly to assess your skills in speaking, listening, reading and writing.  There are progress tests in weeks 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10 of each term.  A final test is done in week 12. If you pass the final test, you can progress to the next level.
