Levels and duration of courses
English Language Institute organises classes so that they are usually 90 minutes long, and are held twice a week. When classes are scheduled in such a way, the course is 10 working weeks long. If your schedule does not allow such learning dynamics, classes can be held more or less frequently according to your needs and responsibilities.
This course is for those who want to develop all the Serbian language skills: speaking, reading, writing and listening. However, you will spend most of the time developing your communication skills in Serbian. You will learn the most useful phrases to help you in everyday communication, but you will also receive a strong grounding in grammar.
Individual courses are especially tailored to the needs of the individual student. A specific course program is created for each student based on the results of the ‘interests and needs analyses’.As we focus on the individual needs of the student, he/she can learn the language and reach their desired level of competency in a short time frame.
You can either tailor a course for yourself or choose a ready-made programme for individual students.
Courses are organized in the period from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. We will meet your wishes and needs, when special request is made for classes’ time.
