The English course best suits intermediate level students. Complete beginners and advanced level students should contact Mercator for advice before enrolling. The venue for our adult course is Saint Austell college. Here learners will find a modern, comfortable 21st century classroom. The maximum class size is 15 students. All materials are provided, and reports and certificates are presented on course completion.

Lessons run from 9 to 12.30. There are three 1-hour lessons during this time.

During the course there is a focus on language work and communication. Teachers aim to encourage learners to become more confident communicators during the programme. Of course, grammar, reading and writing skills are also developed within our communicative approach.

Please contact us for more information on our Adult group courses. We look forward to helping you with your enquiry.

What our Agents Say

We have trusted Mercator for more than 20 years making our collaboration a special one and one of the longest! Our collaboration has built over the years through the organisation of short stays and long stays, for groups and individuals. The hundreds of students that we have sent to Cornwall and Devon have always been accommodated by warm host families. We are very keen on working with Mercator and appreciate their professionalism and loyalty and look forward to many more years of happy collaboration!

Although for many years I recommended a study vacation in the UK to students to improve their English, I could never recommend any organising association because I was never happy with their standards of teaching or the accommodation they offered. In particularly this last feature. I am of the opinion that a family who is interested in helping the students to better their English is almost as important as the good standard of teaching in classes. Then I met Mercator Schools who not only combine good teaching methods with excellent teachers but also caring families who are interested in the young people who come to stay with them and interested in helping them improve their English. All of the Italian students that I know who have taken a course of English with Mercator Schools have greatly improved their English which has made it much easier to pass university exams and get better jobs.
