General group English Course

Our general English course offers a fun package filled with speaking and grammar exercises. This English course consists of two hours of sixty minutes of instruction per week for fifteen weeks (a total of thirty hours). Our goal is to draw you into the world of the English language.

Our English for Beginners course offers you all the tools for a successful journey through an adventure called learning English.

English courses for children

At the American Center, they will soak up the English language like a sponge through activities such as singing to live music (guitar), drawing, coloring, and storytelling. We look forward to seeing you and your child!

Advantages of learning English with native speakers

Learning English with native speakers will force you to communicate only in English
It is very difficult to stay persistent and not escape into another common language during the conversation, especially if you share your mother tongue with the interlocutor. Often a student and his teacher who is not a native English speaker use another, simpler language for the student in explaining and discussing. However, it is very rare for a native English speaker to know the mother tongue (especially if it is Croatian) of his students well enough to explain phenomena in English in that language. While this will sometimes frustrate you and you won’t be able to express yourself the way you want, know that insisting on using English will lead you to speak more fluently. English language courses at the American Center are waiting for you!
Pronunciation and use of language
Native speakers offer a natural way to learn English words and grammar. Attendees of our English course will learn how to pronounce words and phrases correctly. They will also learn how to speak and write using appropriate grammar and vocabulary. Our teachers offer fast and accurate feedback to help students overcome poor speech patterns. Many English words look the same, but are pronounced differently. Sentences like “I have read that magazine” and “I like to read” are examples of this. Similar types of words can be confusing for English language learners. A teacher who is a native speaker will understand the background and meaning of the word.
Cultural topics and differences
Because English is an integral part of culture, American Center teachers are able to answer questions that may arise during the lecture (e.g., questions about customs in American / English culture, etc.).
English Grammar
People whose mother tongue is English very quickly notice grammatical errors. For example, the phrase “I wonder where is the bank?” it is grammatically incorrect and our teachers will of course recognize it immediately. In our English language courses, teachers offer accurate corrections that help students learn to use expressions correctly. After a series of corrections to a student’s spoken or written text, students will begin to monitor their own expression and become able to correct themselves.
The Verbs of English
Some verb constructions in English can be very confusing. Our teachers can easily explain phrases like “come up with” or “check in on”. There are also many irregular verbs in English. Rules for using these verbs like "sing, sang, sung" can be difficult for Croatian speakers. In our English language courses at the American Center, we can make these and many other rules easier to understand.
Different and colloquial vocabulary
Explaining the difference between terms like “wise man” and “wise guy” can be challenging. To our teachers, being native speakers, explaining such words and expressions that are seemingly illogical to students will be much easier.
Authentic English learning
Attendees of our English course will be exposed to an authentic language. Through learning-enhancing activities such as games, students will learn conversational culture and how to speak as native speakers. This also includes the use of slang and correct accents. Course participants will be involved in real and everyday conversations that English speakers use regularly.
Real conversations in English
By talking to native speakers, English students will be able to understand the meaning of phrases and teachers will check back to see if students use words and phrases with appropriate meaning and in the appropriate context in conversations. In our English language courses, teachers explain why a certain term is used in a certain way.
