Course Description

Manchester The courses are designed for those who wish to study a language over a longer period of time, achieving up to an advanced level. With the aid of a text book (included in the price), the syllabus aims to provide useful, relevant language using up-to-date and interesting materials. As well as encouraging participants to practise the language to help build confidence and develop fluency, the course will also focus on aspects of grammar and writing skills. The actual programme content will be determined by the level, and to some extent the interests of the group as a whole.

Students can enrol for modules of 10 weeks which run throughout the year. Programmes run consecutively with breaks for the Easter and Christmas periods. This provides the opportunity for continuous training, allowing students to progress and move up to higher levels as their skills develop. Lessons take place from 6.30 - 8.30 pm.

Curriculum

Cactus language courses are available at different levels to suit students with and without prior language skills.

Studied in sequence, the levels are designed to take students from complete beginner through to proficient level, with different entry points along the way, so that the programme can be picked up at any stage, based on existing language skills.

It generally takes more than one part-time group language courses to sufficiently cover one CEFR*/ACTFL** level and move on to the next with confidence. The Cactus levels structure reflects this. Learn more.

Each course or level can also be studied independently to achieve set learning goals or refresh language skills at the chosen level.

To understand what you will learn in each course, read What will I learn? below. For an understanding of what you can expect to achieve at each level, read What progress will I make at each level? below.

Courses run consecutively throughout the year with breaks in between course units and for Christmas (and public holidays), allowing you to keep up and progress your language skills to a higher level through regular exposure and practice.

What level am I?

If you are unsure where to start or progress to, take our online level test and read our level descriptions for guidance.

What will I learn?

Our Course Outlines give an overview of the content and learning framework of Cactus part-time group courses and include themes, grammar and vocabulary you can typically expect to cover. These are intended as a guide only and our teachers may at times adapt the course content to suit the specific level, aims and interests of the class.

What progress will I make at each level?

Our 'Can Do' Statements provide a guide to what you can expect to achieve at each level and also shows what progress you can expect to make if you stick with it and carry on studying subsequent levels. These are guides only and other factors will affect your rate of progress, e.g. your prior language skills and base level, how proficient you are at picking up new languages, your level of participation in class and revision (and homework) outside of class. It will partially also depend on how difficult (or dissimilar) the language you are learning is (from your native language).

The School - Manchester

This excellent school in the heart of Manchester has been teaching foreign languages to business people for decades and has recently begun offering additional courses for holidaymakers who want an alternative to the enormous class sizes of adult education colleges: here the maximum class size is 12 and averages 8 students. A professional atmosphere is apparent and all teachers are highly qualified to British Council Standards, as well as being mostly native speakers. All classroom time is in the native language (English is never used) which enables students to learn comprehension skills very quickly. The school itself is located on Newton Street in the city centre, very close to Piccadilly Gardens and three minutes' walk from Piccadilly Train Station. Surrounded by cafes, shops and museums, it is close to all public transport routes.

The teachers

Our courses are taught by fully qualified, experience foreign language teachers of native-speaker ability. They provide a quality interactive learning experience at all levels and are able to target individual learning goals and skill gaps. They are also able to enrich your language learning with cultural context and insights.

Course Materials

For all Cactus Foreign Language Courses you will be supplied with course materials, which form the basis of your study.
