General English Courses

General English courses in Ireland with CEC

CEC's General English Courses focus on effective communication and include comprehensive work on grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, and the skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing.

Vocabulary is introduced and practised at every stage of the lesson and particular attention is paid to high frequency, internationally useful words and phrases. Special emphasis is given to communicating effectively and accurately and error correction plays an important role in classes. New language is practised through meaningful speaking tasks and discussions, which include regular integrated work on pronunciation. By the end of the course students will be better able to use English more accurately and effectively and with more confidence.
