Kings English courses are built on the foundation of the four core English skills: listening, speaking, reading, writing. Learners are encouraged to participate actively in the process of learning and acquiring the new language, while learner independence is constantly promoted. All school teachers are experienced, native level English speakers, and many are qualified to Masters or PhD level.
