COURSE details

Learning a new language

When learning a new language, it is important that the learner take charge of his/her learning in an appealing, varied and supportive environment. Both inductive and deductive strategies are employed in our sessions.

The teacher’s role is that of a guide and it is expected that students take responsibility for their own learning, i.e. students are expected to use their own initiative, asking questions to seek clarification, promoting discussion as well as speaking to English-speakers outside of class time in order to maximize the learning process.

Additional Information


There are 50 contact hours per module. Classes meet for two sessions per day Monday to Thursday. 9:00 am to 10:30 am and 11:00 am to 1:00 pm.

our past students say...

“This ESL Program was a life-changing experience. I got, not only an extensive knowledge of grammar and rules, but also the actual ability to communicate in English fluently with enough competence to get the certifications needed for my profession. After completing the ESL program at CLL, I was able to have my first job in English, a dream come true. The experience and professionalism of the teachers are remarkable. I am still very fond of my classmates and some of them became very close friends. Getting to know the twin island was a beautiful experience. I have no regrets.”

Advanced – C1

“I’ve done many English courses before but this one was the best, definitely. In three months, my English level improved notably, having more comprehension and speaking skills than when I started. Only with two levels in the course I did, I can say that my English is really great. Personally, I recommend it.”

Intermediate – B1
