Learn English in an enjoyable, family-orientated environment! Empire Education Centre is certified by the Cyprus Ministry of Education and caters for students of all ages, starting from the age of 2. It is open daily from 8:00 am to 8:30 pm. Both group Lessons and private lessons are available. Empire Education Centre is a small English school located in the town centre of Limassol and all groups have a small number of students so that the teachers can give adequate attention to everyone. There is also a well-equipped library where our students can sit and read a book, or borrow a book to read at home.
The vast majority of our English students are Russian speakers that either come to Cyprus on holiday to study English or live in Cyprus permanently. All of our English teachers are British and speak with a clear English accent, thereby teaching correct phonics and pronunciation to our English students. All of our teachers use differentiated methods of teaching, particularly when a student faces learning difficulties like Dyslexia. All English teachers explain English rules in class and do many speaking activities – written work is usually given as homework to see if the students have fully understood the material that has been covered in class. English teachers ensure that all students are well-trained in Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing skills by the end of each course. We are therefore very proud of our English students because they have a 100% success rate on all internal and external examinations.
English level test and course evaluation
A free English Language level test will be given to all students upon their enrollment at Empire Education Centre and an English Language progress test will be given at the end of the course to examine the success of the course. Based on the level of each student or group, special English courses can be tailored to improve the English Language knowledge of new students. Certificates of Completion (for pass marks) and Certificates of Achievement (for distinction marks) will be awarded at the end of each course.

Our native British teachers offer students an invaluable opportunity to excel in English Speaking and Communication, English Listening skills, English reading comprehension, English writing processes, as well as English grammar and vocabulary. Each day the children will have a new topic to focus on and create a debate for speaking communication. All teachers are native English Speakers and they will teach the students phonics and pronunciation rules. Topics of interest will be used for writing practice. For instance, formulas will be shown regarding letter writing, news reports, magazine articles or even analysis essays (once again depending on the level of the students). Reading sections will have a wide variety of topics taken from fiction and non-fiction texts (depending on the ages and levels of each individual group).
In addition to learning English, summer school students will have the opportunity to participate in an art and craft workshop. Depending on the age and gender of the students, they will be given both freelance and instructed art work to complete including papier-mâché, painting, crafting, as well as making sandal and jewelry designs. An Art Competition will occur at the end of each course for the best compilation of art work. Summer school students will also perform English karaoke. The most successful way to learn how to communicate in English and build speaking confidence is through English Karaoke. Students will use rhythm to learn how to perform English karaoke songs of their choice. Summer school also includes an English drama club. Modern and Classical drama will be watched and performed by our students. This is also a fun way for students to learn how to communicate in English with their peers and build their speaking confidence.
