The Elementary A2 Course is perfect to improve your English if you have previously done a beginner’s course. The training provides a perfect platform for you to grow your skills and confidence in speaking English in a high quality, animated environment. Developing storylines provide opportunities for you to learn the English, all practiced in a realistic context.
How Does It Work?
Through the lessons, you will go around the town of Velawoods and get involved in a range of day-to-day scenarios. This will help you to develop language skills that will be useful in real life. New language is constantly introduced and practised in each of the 39 real life scenarios such as ‘Shopping in Town’, ‘At the Gym’ and ‘Favourite Things’.
How Do I Study?
All learning takes place online through a downloadable application, meaning this isn’t just a cost effective way to study on your computer, smartphone or tablet, it’s also a time effective solution for people who need to learn English alongside their existing responsibilities.
