Placement Test and Pre-tests All students take a placement test on the first day of their course. The exact level of each student can then be determined and the student is placed in a class which is best suited to his/her ability. Weekly teachers' meetings enable us to monitor the progress of each student and to decide whether a change of level is necessary.

Students who wish to enrol on an Intensive English Examination Course are required to take an English language pre-test to ascertain their level of English prior to arrival. The pre-test can be requested from our Head Office.
