More about The Gold Course

The Gold Course is a 15 hours per week General English Course. The emphasis is on communication. We want our older students to share what we can offer and be able to share their thoughts and experiences through English.

Our Gold Course students love to share their views, experiences and impressions. We want you to be able to do this with confidence through English.

“Gold-only” Classes

We know that students on 40+ courses prefer to be in a class with students of a similar age so we guarantee ‘Gold-only” classes whenever there are four or more participants at the same level.

If there are fewer than four participants, Gold Course students may share morning classes with other adult students.
