ESL Program Introduction

English Lessons and Workshops: At Action in English qualified teachers use effective, modern techniques to create interesting, enjoyable lessons. Teachers assist with the activity programme to ensure that the learning of English continues well beyond the classroom. Students are placed by ability to a maximum of 15 in each class.
