The CERAN method

The intensive English programme offered by CERAN, aimed at adults and professionals is essentially focused on communication and interaction. The training offered by qualified, native speakers is the best way to make quick progress in English.

Several course options are available at the centre, all of which include the following:

  • General English lessons focusing on general communication and managerial communication (depending on the student's level).
  • Phonetic training: you work on and improve your pronunciation with the help of the software SpeedLingua, which allows you to hear English and corrects you at the same time.
  • Multimedia sessions: guided by a teacher, you will develop you oral comprehension and enrich your vocabulary.
  • Educational guidance sessions: your teacher will asses your "learner profile" with you in order for you to get to grips with what you have learnt during lessons.

Please note that the lessons last for 45 minutes each.

As well as lessons, other activities are offered during the day:

  • Themed conversations in English everyday at lunchtime with your teachers.
  • Discussions in English during breaks
  • Themed evenings everyday for two hours: inter-cultural communication, presentations, team management.

Training on campus

With a busy professional life, what could be better than escaping for a few weeks to the heart of the Ardennes, to a green and relaxing space. The centre is in fact barely a few kilometres from Spa and its thermal springs: a rejuvenating experience which will allow you to immerse yourself 100% in the English language and concentrate on your intensive language programme.

The language centre at Spa

Located in the heart of a luxurious and historical region, the centre is made up of several buildings, all dedicated to the teaching of a particular language. There are several classrooms, a dining hall where meals will be shared in English and a living room, to carry on practising your English during the breaks.

The centre also has two multimedia spaces, an international common room where the students can meet up, and also numerous sports areas where students can relax.

If you need to stay connected, a WiFi connection, ADSL connection and computers are all available for students to use at their leisure throughout the stay.


A high quality residence

Because you are on an intensive course, the centre offers students accommodation of the highest quality. Students stay on campus in an individual room (double rooms are available for couples), fitted with a bathroom and toilet, as well as a desk if students need to work or carry on their language training individually.

Two suites have been added to the standard rooms, allowing services for all your needs and expectations.

Spacious and with contemporary design, the rooms offers well-being, clam and relaxation necessary to help with your training.

This accommodation option includes meals on full-board from Sunday evening to Friday midday.

If your stay lasts longer than one week and you wish to stay on site during the weekend, we can organise your accommodation for Friday - Saturday nights as well as breakfast. See the Dates and Prices tab for details.

Finally, if the residence is fully booked, CERAN can offer accommodation in a hotel nearby to the centre.
