DEVELOPMENT LANGUAGE SKILLS

Each person has quite specific needs. There are those who would like to improve their SPEAKING, in order to attend an interview, or for tourism reasons, or just because speaking has been neglected and the focus has been on grammar.

In some cases, READING must be improved due a forthcoming exam. Others might wish to improve their WRITING skills for either business or literary interests. Finally, some would like to gain the ability to LISTEN to English songs, movies, or to conduct telephone conversations.

Hours can be flexible.


TUTORIAL CLASSES

The main purpose of the tutorial classes which are offered at Brighton is to reinforce the topics and themes the students have found difficult at their respective schools. The process begins when parents arrive. First, we identify why there has been a failing at school. Furthermore, Brighton will contact the students’ English teacher at their respective institutions in order to address what topics are needed to be covered. When this is done, a syllabus will be created with the objective to rectify the difficulties encountered.





The ESOL and IELTS exams are being held in Pasto in an alliance with the BRITISH COUNCIL BOGOTA, COLEGIO CHAMPAGNAT, and BRIGHTON

The advantages are as follows:

  • The convenience of sitting the exam in our own facilities
  • Low costs by not incurring in travelling expenses
  • Exam dates are more flexible
  • Exclusive sessions
