York Tutors Young Learner English Language courses are designed to provide opportunities for ALL students to improve their English.
York Tutors courses are delivered through a combination of English lessons taught by fully qualified TEFL teachers alongside educational excursions, group activities and course work. The balance of each aspect of our courses can be dictated by the client and take the form of morning lessons with excursions in the afternoons, or more intensive study in classes all day Monday to Friday with evening activities and full-day weekend excursions.
We aim to make sure that all our students gain confidence in using the English language in all situations; from formal to informal occasions.
On arrival at your chosen centre each student will take a written language test followed by an informal interview with one of York Tutors senior teachers. This allows us to assess each students capabilities and place them in an appropriate class of similarly aged students of diverse nationalities. All York Tutors classes are divided using CEF (Common European Framework) levels.
The maximum class size for York Tutors courses is 15 students per group allowing for a greater degree of personal interaction and individual attention from our teachers.
