A Special Place To Learn English

Improve Your English…Small Classes and a Special Environment!


These programs are especially for high beginner to advanced level students who prefer a three- or four-day per week program that follows a curriculum. Classes are small (maximum six students), so students receive personalized attention. Classes focus on all areas of language learning – speaking, listening, reading, vocabulary, grammar and writing.

Students enroll in the Semi-Intensive and Intensive English Program for four-week terms. Students start on Monday (Tuesday, if Monday is a holiday). Depending on the time of year, students join a newly-formed group or an existing group, at their level. Students stay in the program for an average of four to six months, in successive four-week terms, or based on holidays or student travel may enroll in a partial term of less than four weeks, if they wish. Continuing students progress to a higher level in the curriculum and do not repeat course materials.

Fun Activities Every Week!

All students are invited to participate in weekly, Friday activities such as visits to museums. Students pay for the Metro, and lunch if they would like, but admission to most museums is free. An English Now! staff member leads the group. See our Student Activity Calendar for details about weekly and other programs.
