English courses for adults

English courses for adults (16+)

Our approach to teaching and learning is at the heart of our success as a school, and your success as a language learner. ‘Let your English come to life’ is our motto and it means we aim to make your learning enjoyable, challenging and rewarding, developing your confidence in communicating in the English-speaking world.
General English

Our General English course is designed to give you a solid foundation in English and develop your ability to communicate.


The Lewis School has a strong history in providing IELTS preparation courses, with many previous students following degree courses in the U.K.

Academic Year

Our flexible Academic Year programmes allow you to choose from our range of group courses and create your own path of study.

One-to-one lessons

1:1 lessons are tailored to suit your individual needs in the area you require, for example Business English, Legal English or soft skills - whatever you wish to study.

Afternoon Classes

Afternoon General English is available as a part-time course, or you can add it to any 15-hour course. Lessons mainly focus on your communication skills.

Specialist Training

In collaboration with Sterling Training, who deliver top quality programmes to business, military and security forces worldwide.


From the first day you arrive at the school, we learn about your reasons for learning English, your language strengths, and your personal aims for the course.
Classes are small – the maximum number of students is 13 for IELTS and 12 for all other courses - so you will receive a lot of individual attention. Your teachers will discuss your progress every week, and if you follow a General English course, you will be able to move to a higher level when you and your teachers feel you are ready. From time to time, you will also have a one-to-one tutorial with our staff so you can discuss your progress.


The school's multicultural environment and opportunities to practise English outside the classroom make a big difference to your learning. Social activities also provide an ideal opportunity to practise. We have created vocabulary sheets for our trips to develop your language as you explore the UK. Weekly Study Clubs help you improve your conversation skills, grammar and more.
There are also opportunities for self-study, from our online syllabus to our Study Centre with a mini library and progress tests. Our students can use certain facilities at Solent University next door, like their
restaurant and library. So we offer an excellent environment for your English to grow!
