General Questions

1. How many students are there in each class?

Courses will run with a minimum of 3 participants. ABC English reserves itself the right to cancel a course if the minimum amount of participants is not reached.

2. Can I start a course anytime?

If you already speak some English, you can start the conversation course anytime – participants can join all other courses up until the 3rd lesson if they’ve missed the first two.

3. How do I know which level is right for me?

The first step is take our online test here. Students are placed in the level below their test result because the ‘active’ spoken level is normally lower than a person’s ‘passive’ kowledge of the English language. Alternatively, please contact the school for a free intake. In this meeting, all your needs & requirements are discussed and then the most suitable course is chosen.
