Our classes provide a comfortable environment for you to learn and use new language and help build your confidence speaking in English.
Improve your speaking through real communication.
Learner-centred classes with a focus on students’ interests, wants and needs.
IH Manchester is part of the International House World Organisation. This is what we PROMISE our students.
These classes are good for students who:
have difficulty using the language that they already know in speaking
want to improve their listening for conversations
live outside the UK but want a trusted UK based school and to speak to people from different countries
want to improve their English for personal development
want to improve their English for work
want to use English for travel
want to enjoy using English in daily life e.g. online, when reading, watching films/movies or listening to music
In these classes you will:
practise speaking and listening skills in English through conversation with other students of your level
practise vocabulary and grammar from your level in speaking
improve your pronunciation
get level-appropriate feedback and advice from a supportive teacher
follow weekly study plans designed to help you progress through the level
get access to extra online resources for study outside class
learn how to study independently, so you have the skills to continue to improve after you have finished your classes.
What and how you will study?
International House Manchester uses a communicative-lexical approach meaning students are helped to use natural, real-life English effectively. We’ll work to make sure you can use the language rather than just know it. We want students to understand English grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation, but more importantly we want students to be able to use the language we teach when they need to use it. Teachers will plan their lessons so there are lots of chances for the students to communicate in English, while feedback on performance will be provided during the lesson in a friendly, helpful way to improve accuracy while developing fluency.
