GENERAL ENGLISH (ESL)

At HSL, our English language programs are designed to give you the language skills to live, work, study and travel with confidence.

Our English programs allow you to develop your English speaking, writing, reading and listening skills at a pace that suits your needs and timetable. Whatever the schedule may be – fast and consistent or slow and steady – our small interactive classes, communicative tasked-based learning, real world practice and fluency development ensure that students have ample opportunities to acquire English language skills with confidence.

To ensure you get the most out of each and every class, students are placed in one of five ESL levels as per their written and oral placement test.

Starter → Elementary → Pre-Intermediate → Intermediate → Upper Intermediate

Teachers continuously monitor student progress throughout the program and give regular feedback and advice, helping them to develop the world class English language skill they need.

Students are given the chance to choose the elective classes that best suit their interest. Classes are mixed level classes. These classes vary and give students a chance to see how language is a living adventure.
