General English (Pre-sessional courses)

General English is a full time, 15 hour per week course that aims to give you confidence in communicating in an English-speaking environment. The course is taught in weekly modules focusing on the skills of speaking, listening, reading, and writing whilst covering essential grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, and common English phrases. General English is designed for students who wish to improve their ability to communicate in English while experiencing the vibrancy and excitement of Liverpool.

LILA offers Exam Preparation courses in IELTS and Cambridge exams (FCE and CAE) and can offer One to One tuition or Bespoke Group Courses for other exams including Trinity and Cambridge PET or KET.

Specialist English courses

Evening & One to One Classes

Evening classes are ideal for students who want to learn English without committing to a full-time course. Part-time, twice weekly classes offer the perfect opportunity to enhance fluency and accuracy in reading, writing, listening, speaking, vocabulary and grammar. One to One classes pin point areas for improvement and provide opportunity to work on individual needs. Classes take place at the student's convenience, either at the academy, the student's home or workplace.

For accommodation
