July and August, Carnival, and All Saints: make fast progress in English during these breaks.

Why 4 hours/day?

4 hours every morning gives the best result for an intensive language course in Brussels.

Do you wonder why we teach 4 hours per day in the morning. Why not 2, 3 or 6 hours?

Research proved that 4 hours per day is the optimal duration for intensive language lessons:

  • Fewer hours don’t facilitate fast progress.
  • More hours require a long lunch break.
  • Efficiency of full day training is lower per hour.
  • Free afternoons allow for revision and other obligations.

That is why not only students from the capital but also from Flanders and Wallonia choose our school to make fast progress.
