Overview of The Academy

Our goal with the Academy is to help you move from consumer of English to producer of English**.**

We have designed a hands-on 10-week course that will give you the opportunity to engage with a wide variety of subjects and original content in English, and produce 10 unique extended pieces of work (both written and spoken) that you can be proud of.

Throughout, you will have the help and support of the Leonardo English team, and you will receive detailed personalised corrections, feedback and guidance for the entire 10 weeks.

You will also have two, 45 minute 1:1 coaching sessions with Alastair Budge.

When the course is over you will leave as a more confident, more curious, and more professional user of English.

Here is an overview of the curriculum*, the subjects you will engage with, and the learning goals of each week:
