Learning English at CLAC
The CLAC English learning programme aims to give students maximum benefit during their stay by linking what is studied in the classroom with the language that they will need in all other aspects of their course.

In this way students immediately get to practise what they have learnt, which builds both fluency and confidence, which in turn builds more friendships!

A typical day begins with a 90-minute intensive English language lesson that has been carefully designed to teach grammar and vocabulary. In the second part of the morning students have two shorter 45-minute intensive English skills lessons.

Teachers focus specifically on areas such as pronunciation, speaking, listening, reading and writing. Language games and role plays encourage involvement and motivation. For further writing practice, students are encouraged to keep a diary throughout their course. Prizes are awarded for the best diary!

Specialist Workshops are one hour classes held on three afternoons each week focussing on interest-based topics which vary each week and are chosen by each student according to their own interest. These classes aim to reinforce English through engagement and enjoyment.
