Advanced English for Real Life (Series)

Boost your English-speaking ability and confidence through a fun, weekly class.

Aimed at intermediate-level students, this three-month program is designed to help students enjoy more meaningful conversations while mixing or networking at the Club.

By building their English vocabulary and phrase knowledge while picking up tips on interacting in social settings, students can expand their social circle at the Club.

Lessons include role-play, peer feedback and discussion to enable students to practice using specific language.
