COURSES OFFERED BY THE REGENCY

THE GENERAL ENGLISH COURSE
This course is designed to provide students with a varied and interesting teaching programme, which concentrates on developing the ability to use the type of English necessary for everyday communication. Students can attend this course for any length of time, from one week - to one year. Longer term students will find that as their English improves the teaching and material will reflect that improvement. Those students who are able to attend the Regency for only a short time will find that our small classes, experienced teachers, and English speaking atmosphere will enable them to make rapid progress.

TEACHER-TRAINING COURSES
As well as language tuition, the Regency provides teacher-training courses for teachers of English from abroad. Areas covered include: designing communicative activities; new approaches to grammar teaching; the sound of English; lesson planning; using and exploiting authentic material in the classroom and teaching the four skills. These courses can be arranged on a group or one-to-one basis and may be combined with an Advanced English Language course.

EXAMINATION COURSES
For many years the Regency has operated a programme of specialised examination courses, with considerable success. At the moment we run courses for the following examinations: Cambridge Proficiency; Cambridge First Certificate; Cambridge Preliminary English Test (P.E.T.); Cambridge Certificate in Advanced English; Oxford Higher Certificate; Oxford Preliminary (levels 1, 2 &3); Trinity Collage Graded Oral exams, and London Chamber of Commerce exams. Full details of courses are on the price list.
