Service Description

It is a 1-to-6 course. There are currently approximately one MILLION words in the English language but as humans we tend to only use two or three thousand on a regular basis. This course is designed both to improve a student’s vocabulary in a general sense but also to provide them with ambitious and intriguing new words that will enable them to stand out and impress in examination situations. Vocabulary will be studied in innovative and exciting ways and not just reading through long lists of words. Words will be grouped both by part of speech and by theme or topic, enabling students to broaden their general vocabulary and their topic-specific creative writing and other forms. The course will also encourage students to eradicate the more basic vocabulary from their everyday usage and replace it with words that will impress.
