General English Lessons Online and in Manchester

Our live online general English lessons and face to face English courses in Manchester will give you confidence to speak English well.

You want to be able to communicate easily and fluently in English when you are travelling or on holiday.
It makes every trip much better. You enjoy your holiday or visit much more when you feel confident speaking English. And it’s more fun when you can make friends!

You have tried English lessons before, but they didn’t help.
That’s really hard and probably makes you feel bad. It seems like a waste of your time. And your money!
Perhaps you’ve thought; “I will NEVER learn how to speak English well!”
But, that’s that not true. You CAN do this.
IH Manchester has helped thousands of students to speak English fluently and to understand native English speakers when they speak.

Most people remember trying to learn English at school. It is usually a negative memory, isn’t it?
But, that was not YOUR fault. That was because you did not have the right teachers nor the best methods.
Our teachers specialise in helping our students to speak in English from the start of their general English lessons.
They know exactly how to help you. Exactly how to make you succeed.

You CAN do this! You just need teachers who are experienced and use the best methodology. We are completely sure that we can help you.
In fact, we will GUARANTEE your progress.

General English Lesson - Course Details

This course is good for students who:

  • want to improve their English for self-improvement
  • want to study in English in the future
  • 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

What and how you will study?

International House Manchester uses communicative-lexical approach meaning students are helped to communicate effectively using natural, real-life English. 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 at appropriate stages of the lesson in a friendly, helpful way to improve accuracy while developing fluency.
