After lunch, Accelerated Combo Course students take two intensive one-to-one lessons. Students can choose the set curriculum of Business English and/or, being a private class, students can focus on their specific needs such as Test Preparation (TOEFL, TOEIC, IELTS, or Cambridge), pronunciation, or Academic English.
