This course is for students living in Trinidad and Tobago (Student visa services not included).

Our General English Semi-Intensive courses are designed to develop your English language skills and the exam techniques you’ll need to be successful in your IELTS. It combines General English with IELTS preparation to enhance your overall language proficiency.

We cover reading, writing, speaking, listening, grammar, and vocabulary to ensure a comprehensive learning experience. Additionally, our project sessions offer practical work and structured study activities to improve your research and communication skills. With our courses, you’ll gain the confidence to express yourself fluently and accurately in a range of real-life situations. 

All new students will be taking a placement test with a CSL teacher. This will determine their level.

All our levels cover the contents of the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) of the Council of Europe. The communicative approach is applied in all our language courses. All levels have equivalent band scores for the IELTS Exam, TOEFL Exam and Cambridge Exams. 


On successful completion of the programme, students will be able to move on to study English at Mastery levels. Some students who have completed this programme, may progress to GCSE English, explore other courses offered at colleges, seize promising employment opportunities, or even pursue additional training to enhance your skills further.
