General information
The focus of all our languages courses is on the development of all language skills, especially speaking and listening.  We want to give you confidence and fluency in communication.  You will also learn much about the cultures of the countries where the language is spoken.

Courses have structured materials compiled by ALA to suit your level, but you will also study using other resources, including CDs.

Some material is practised directly with your teacher; at other times, work is done in pairs or small groups under the supervision of your teacher.
