Our General English classes provide a professional and relaxed learning environment where students are helped to develop the four essential skills of language communication: speaking, listening, reading and writing.
Students are asked to complete a placement test before they start a General English course level to ensure that they are placed in the correct level.
Beginner (A1), Elementary (A2), Pre-Intermediate (B1), Intermediate (B1+), Upper-Intermediate (B2), Advanced (C1)
Please note that each level takes about 10 weeks to complete depending on the ability and progress of the student.
15, 20 or 25 hours per week

Please note that WE Bridge Academy only accepts students who are aged 16 and over. Students who are 16 or 17 will not receive a junior course level of supervision and will be in classes with students who are aged 18+. Students and their parents/guardians should consider this before any under-18-year-old enrols on a course.
English Beyond the Classroom gives students the opportunity to leave the classroom and practise their English with native speakers in Cardiff city centre. Under the supervision of teachers, students participate in organised activities that encourage them to absorb vital practical knowledge, engage in real-life conversations, and use everyday vocabulary. This innovative programme allows students to develop their English language skills in a real-life context while having fun and communication with native speakers within the local community.
