FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
I want to join a class. What should I do?
Contact Jennie Mechti via email firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will help you to choose a class.
I don’t know what the level of my English is. How can I choose a class?
We will speak to you and ask you to do an initial assessment test before we decide which class is the best for you.
Will I get a certificate at the end of the course?
We can enter you for a Trinity Skills for Life examination at the appropriate level before the end of the course. You may have to pay for the exam. Your tutor will tell you the current fees for your level, and advise you on when you are ready to enter for an examination. The complete suite consists of 3 exams: Reading, Writing, and Speaking & Listening. Successful candidates receive a certificate for each of these and a full certificate when they have passed all 3. Certificates are presented in an Awards Ceremony each October.
What if I need a visa, or wish to apply for residency or citizenship?
We can prepare you for the appropriate examination such as the Trinity College London GESE exam.
What if I need a level higher than the Skills for Life examinations can offer?
We can prepare you for an IELTS exam at the appropriate level.
