Our English school in London develops all aspects of the English language including speaking, pronunciation, listening, grammar, reading and writing. The focus is on improving your ability to communicate clearly and effectively.
During your English course you will be expected to participate as much as possible and work individually, in pairs and in groups as well as take part in whole class activities. All staff hold a valid ‘Enhanced DBS’check or staff will sign a declaration form until their DBS check is returned.
Each week you will be given homework and at the end of the week you will have opportunity to revise what you have learnt. Students can study quietly, do homework, read for pleasure or use one of our computers in the student lounge. There is free wi-fi throughout the school and the student lounge has a coffee machine and vending/snacks machine to save you time in your breaks.
Although the school promotes speaking in English as much as possible, we have multilingual staff available should you need to speak your native language.
