A typical day with Ardmore.

Students have three hours of English lessons per day from Monday to Friday, with the lessons divided into two parts.

Part One: Language input, which involves using grammar and vocabulary in various tasks/exercises.

Part Two: Fluency/practice activities aimed at developing fluency through specific tasks like designing a website or poster, conducting a classroom survey or even producing/acting in a short play.

We offer a wide range of activities, which may include: Football, Arts & Crafts, Dance, Tennis, Basketball, etc. 

Evening entertainment programme may include Talent Show, Disco, Quiz Nights, Film Nights, Sports Tournaments and more options.

Emphasis on communication helps students to use English for a variety of purposes and in various situations. Our aim is to build students' knowledge and confidence in understanding and speaking English.
