Courses, fees and dates

Part-time evening courses June 2019

Our objective is to give classes at a convenient time for you, with high quality teaching at a price which you can afford.  There are a maximum of fourteen students in a class and the price covers all required books and study materials.

The Pre-First and CAE courses are for students who would like to improve their general English or need support before doing Cambridge First or CAE courses in the future by:

  • Mainly focusing on writing, grammar, vocabulary and speaking
  • Introducing suggested skills strategies for listening and reading

This is an open Cambridge exam centre, and its website (http://www.ihbristol.com/exam) offers all the relevant details including exam fees and dates.

“David is like a gripping movie: even when you are worn-out after a day at work, you will neither lose your attention during his lessons nor get bored. Thanks to him, I easily passed the exam and got the Certificate in Advanced English, which has been crucial in getting a job in Spain!”
– Fabrizio Caon, Italy

“David has been for me the best teacher of English. He organises his classes in a way that you can learn all the hours that you are in class keeping your attention (even after a long day at work) till the end. His recommendations for writings are specific for each student.”
– Laura Ruiz Martinez, Argentina

“David is by far one of the best teachers I’ve ever had. Not only does he do his best to encourage the students but also to guide you towards the proper way in order to pass your exams. He is the best option if you want a great teacher and to learn with a human touch.”
– Javier Alpanez, Spain
