English Course 3 hours Week (Trimester)
Group classes at Diagonal English focus on real conversation and interaction in English making sure, through practice, students can improve their level of English quickly and easily.
Our classes provide students with authentic, engaging, and enjoyable speaking practice across a range of topics relevant to our learners. Our approach to teaching grammar is simple : provide learners with speaking opportunities and teach the grammar that they need to communicate their ideas correctly. That way, learners are taught what they need at the time they need it. Then with further opportunities to practice in subsequent classes, students learn grammar in a real context instead of only memorising rules.
Pronunciation in English is often an obstacle for learners as the way words are written and how they are pronounced is often very different. Students often comment on how they find it difficult to understand native speakers because of this, and that is why by learning through real communication with expert speaker guidance and support, learners can constantly improve this area during their classes.
That is why we believe that the best way to learn to speak a language is through lots of level appropriate practice and exposure to it, focussing on clear communication and highlighting the difference between written and spoken language.
Again,this doesn’t take the importance away from learning grammar, however we believe that by placing emphasis on clear communication we can then teach the grammar that is needed in a relevant context.
English classes in groups of a maximum of 8 students which are designed for students who want to improve their level of English in a quick and effective way.
Two 1 hour classes a week plus 1 masterclass. Students can join our group classes immediately after a level test between September and July.

Each student also has exclusive access to our weekly online Masterclass tailored to their level. Our weekly webinars compliment what is being studied in class and offer our students an excellent opportunity to study from the comfort of their home, focussing on topics such as, specific grammar points, phrasal verbs, vocabulary, Business English, etc.
Native English Speakers
All our classes are taught by experienced English speaking teachers who really enjoy teaching the English language. Our teachers come from all over the English speaking world and through our teacher rotation system, over a trimester learners have the opportunity to interact with a variety of different teachers and their accents which in turn helps improve their listening skills.
Make up missed classes with no additional cost
Here at Diagonal English we understand that many people find it hard to make the time to study English and quite often, having a good working level of English can decide whether you get that job you’re going for or even get promoted to a better paid one.
For that reason, students are able to make up any group classes they miss providing that it is within their selected payment period, whether it being monthly or trimesterly, completely free of charge.
This way we ensure that students make the most of their investment, and also cover the necessary material, ensuring that they and their group progress correctly.
Group Classes -Level of English
After completing our online or face to face level test, which lasts approximately 40 minutes, we are able to have a better understanding of your level of English in a variety of skills, ( speaking, writing, knowledge of grammar), as well as a learner profile which allows us to offer you the most suitable groups in relation to the results of the test.
This way, groups at Diagonal English are as carefully formed as possible, not only according to students’ level but also learner profiles. This also underlines the importance of attending classes and by giving students the possibility to make them up, we are able to ensure that groups are able to progress at the right pace, making sure no one gets left behind.
At Diagonal English, we are sure that you will be won over by our teaching approach, however we don’t want to force anyone, who for whatever reason is not convinced by our classes. For that reason we offer a week’s trial (2 classes) for all our group classes and if after singing up, you’re not satisfied, we’ll give you your back money…. it’s that simple.
There is a registration fee of 50€ for all our courses, however if after first signing up, you stay at the school for a minimum of 3 months, this payment will be valid for life. Meaning that you if you stop studying and return at a later date, you won’t have to pay the registration fee again.
