english courses in london

English courses in London run from Monday to Friday, in various levels all year round. You can book a course for a length of 1 to 52 weeks and you can start your English course on any Monday of the year (except for holidays). We ask for an indication of your level on the online enrolment form. If you’re not sure, don’t worry, before the start of the course you will take a level test to determine your exact level of English.

Groups are formed by level of English. So you will be placed in a group with students who share your level of language proficiency. The groups consist of students of all ages, backgrounds and nationalities, we believe this produces a more interesting and educational environment.

You will develop your knowledge of grammar and vocabulary and practice all language skills; speaking, listening, reading and writing. Classes are designed to improve accuracy and fluency.

Classes are usually in the morning, but can be in the afternoon. Depending on the course intensity the General English courses have 2 (General English 10) or 3 (General English 15) Lessons daily. This course is generally aimed for students who have a small budget or more time available to learn English.

If you prefer more intensive English courses, in London we offer the Intensive 20 (4 lessons daily), Intensive 25 (5 lessons daily), Intensive 30 (6 lessons daily) or the Intensive 35 (7 lessons daily).

The General English 10 and the intensive (20, 25 30 and 35) courses in London always consist of 5 option lessons per week, which concentrate on one of the following areas:

Conversation: This will improve your oral fluency and listening skills. The classes focus on all features of spoken English, using role-play, simulations and discussions to work on stress, pronunciation and intonation to help you understand real English outside the classroom.
Pronunciation: You will work on problem sounds in the English language. The course will focus on pronunciation in words, sentences and in longer passages. You will also practice using stress and intonation to develop a natural English accent.
Grammar: This option will reinforce the most important structures of English Grammar. If you have trouble with particular grammar structures, this course will give you further opportunities to practice them. Some of the structures focused on in the lower level course are: present simple, comparatives and superlatives and countable/uncountable nouns whilst higher levels look at unreal conditionals, reported speech and various verb patterns.

In between classes you'll have a short break for some coffee or refreshments. English classes in London are run in small groups. Because of the small groups, the teacher can give individual support and classes are intensive. Besides the English language, the English culture is an integral part of classes.

Business English courses
In London we offer a course aimed to gain the appropriate skills and knowledge to use English in a practical Business environment. You will develop functional language skills such as telephoning, giving presentation and negotiating. Topics include Marketing and Human Resources and you will learn the practical language needed in the workplace. During the course there will be weekly projects to complete, for example, presentation of a new company or product; summary and analysis of a newspaper article, etc. We offer the Business English 15, which consists of 3 lessons of Business English daily and the Business English 30. If you choose the Business English 30 you will have 3 lessons of Business English and 3 lessons of General English per day. The minimum level for this course is intermediate. If your level appears to be insufficient to follow this course, you will be placed in a General English course, without any extra costs.

Exam preparation courses
The English speaking world has many different ways to determine your level of English. The most common exams for non-native speakers in British English are the IELTS exam and the Cambridge exam. If you need an official document proving your level of English, for instance to enter an English University, English speaking course in your home country, a job in an English speaking company or for immigration purposes, you might want to consider a course preparing you to one of these exams.

In London we offer exam preparation courses for both the IELTS and the Cambridge exam. The required level for attending these courses is Intermediate (B1). In case you don't have this level yet, you can take a General English course first. If you're not sure of your level, please contact us.

The IELTS is an increasingly popular exam preparation course taken by students who plan to study at university in the UK, either for a first degree or a Master's. So improve your IELTS score and get that place at university with our IELTS course. Focus on your weaknesses and study essential exam preparation techniques with experienced IELTS teachers using tried and tested materials. Regular practice exams and weekly one-to-one tutorials with your teacher will help you monitor your progress. The IELTS preparation course in London consists of 20 weekly lessons (4 per day) of IELTS preparation in a small group.

Go to the IELTS website to check the official exam dates and more information about the exam itself. In London you can start the IELTS preparation course any Monday. The exam fee and reservation is not included in the price.

The University of Cambridge First Certificate (FCE) and the Certificate of Advanced English (CAE) are recognised by employers around the world. Unlike IELTS, the FCE and CAE exam course will help to improve your English for real-life situations. This exam preparation course prepares students for these Cambridge exams which are among the most widely recognised English language examinations in the world. The Cambridge preparation course in London consists of 25 weekly lessons (5 per day) Cambridge preparation in a small group.

Go to the Cambridge exam website to check the official FCE and CAE exam dates and more information about the exam itself. Please contact us to verify the exam dates and course start dates for the Cambridge preparation in London. The exam fee and reservation is not included in the price.

Individual English courses
The content of the individual classes are fully customized and will be adapted to your personal motivation to learn English. So if you are either looking for an English course for executives, already have a higher level and you’re struggling with some specific grammar issues or if you want to fully emphasize your English classes on a subject to your choice, we would definitely recommend you to take the individual English course.

Before the course start your English level will be determined and you will discuss the content of the classes and the course timetable. During the course changes can be easily made in accordance with your private teacher.

The standard individual course is the Individual 10 course, which consists of 2 individual English lessons daily from Monday to Friday. But we can be very flexible with the individual classes in London. Just contact us for a price quote if you want a different quantity of private classes.
