The MLS General English courses are for students who want to study in a mature environment and who fully appreciate that studying English in an English-speaking country is without doubt the fastest and most effective way to learn English. The MLS Exam Preparation courses are designed for students who are specifically seeking preparation for a particular exam, or who feel they will benefit from an exam focused syllabus.
