As a student in our General English Program, you’ll focus on interactive, conversational English rather than teacher lectures. Your teachers will limit themselves to speaking no more than one-third of the class time in order to encourage you and your classmates to converse in English. The interactive lessons clarify grammar usage, introduce new vocabulary and hone your reading strategies, always with an emphasis on spoken communication. You will develop your verbal English skills as quickly and effectively as possible.
Many of our students say that one of their favorite things about Bridge is the multicultural student body. Our General English Program students range in age from 18 to 50+ and are our most diverse group. They are here to learn English for a wide range of reasons, from simply experiencing life and culture in the US, to learning specific skills for a profession.
No matter why you choose to study English at Bridge, you will undoubtedly benefit from the friendships you develop and the things you learn from your fellow students.
