That is entirely up to you but we might give you a suggestion or two. If you prefer a group environment then choose a General English group course or a General English Mini group course. Both these courses cover general English topics relevant to everyday life. You can also choose a group course for Business English or an Exam Preparation course leading up to an internationally recognised Cambridge qualifications such as IELTS, PET, FCE, CAE  and CPE.

If you wish to have a more intensive course, you can choose choose One to One lessons where your trainer designs the lessons around your individual needs and requirements.

After booking your course you can take our online placement test at http://www.i-e-learn.com and we will send you the results with information about your level.

The test should be taken as close as possible to the start date of your course.

Allocate 30 minutes for the test. Allocate another 10 minutes for the Needs Analysis.

The test is composed of 96 questions that get harder as you progress.

Stop when the questions become too difficult for you to answer.

Group courses start every Monday all year round but you can also join a course mid week if necessary although this is not advisable. One to One courses can start any day at your convenience.

The minimum duration of an English course is one week. We recommend that all courses be followed for approximately 3 weeks to gain confidence and knowledge in the English language. The longer you're here, the more fluent you will become provided you work hard and allow us to guide you.

At the end of your English course you will be presented with  an inlingua certificate of attendance which states the type of course you followed, the course duration as well as the level of English you have achieved. A certificate will only be issued if your attendance is satisfactory.

If your intention is to study at inlingua for a long time, we suggest you also apply for an internationally recognised Cambridge exam so you can go home with both an inlingua certificate of attendance as well as a prestigious Cambridge certificate of achievement. Once you are at inlingua, please ask our Director of Studies or Centre Exams Manager to guide you.

inlingua organises a full leisure and activity programme every day of the week with cultural tours and historical visits as well as fun, social events in the evenings like BBQ evenings, sunset cruises and student parties. You will continue to speak English outside the classroom while you have fun and socialise with your new friends.
