General English (Intensive) combines morning and afternoon classes.  It is a communicative course balancing the four skills of reading, writing, listening and speaking. 

You will also focus on grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation and aspects of British culture. You will have the opportunity to focus on a range of specific skills in the afternoon classes i.e. academic, business or general English (subject to student demand). 

You are provided with a course book in the morning classes, in addition to authentic materials, such as newspaper articles, documentaries and video. You will engage in meaningful and purposeful activities which will promote your language learning in the context of the classroom and outside it.

Intensive English is a 25-hour course, with both morning and afternoon lessons. Classes run from Monday to Friday.

The course is designed to meet the needs of learners in a variety of situations and aims to bridge the gap between the classroom and the real world.

Student spotlight



Having looked at loads of English courses in London, I found Regent's the best option for my studies, not only because of the magnificence of its campus but also because of the quality of the programme. I was interested in learning and practising the language in different topics, such as marketing, communications, technology and business.
