English in London

With 1.5 billion speakers worldwide, English provides accessibility unlike any other language. As the official language of over 60 sovereign states, there are very few places inaccessible to an English speaker, and London, the capital of England, is naturally somewhere where English thrives. While this is a multicultural and diverse city (with inhabitants speaking over 300 languages!), English is the most prevalent and is the language of business, education and social life in general. So, taking English lessons in London will allow you to fully appreciate all the wonders of the city and to take advantage of its many professional and cultural opportunities. You will also be able to travel and to connect with people all around the globe. Contact us today and we will start preparing a course that suits your needs and abilities! 

 

Why Study English in London

For Work: London hosts a thriving community filled with professional opportunities you can take advantage of by learning English. Based on data collected from the World Bank, the OECD and the United Nations, London was the world’s leading financial centre in 2018. This is no surprise, considering the city is the headquarters to some of the largest companies worldwide, including the BBC, Vodafone, Arcadis, Selco Builders and HSBC Bank. There are also a huge array of public sector jobs available in London, but you will need to start learning English before you can apply, as the British government has dictated that only fluent English speakers are eligible for them. So, enhance your employability by taking English courses in London and put your studies into practice in a city rich with potential.

For Studies: Studying a degree in London is a unique opportunity to obtain some of the best higher education in the world, in almost any subject you could imagine. There are many reputable institutions you can choose between, such as the Imperial College London or the University of London; but all of them have strict language requirements. If you would like to pursue higher education and your first language is not English, you will need to prove you know it well enough by sitting for a proficiency test beforehand, like the Cambridge Certificate of Advanced English, City & Guilds International ESOL 8984 or IELTS, among others. Ensure you are prepared for this new challenge with our Exam Preparation Course. Contact us and we will tailor this language programme to your skills and needs!

For Social and Culture: If you would like to feel like a local, it is important that you practise English outside the classroom and make new friends with whom you can use the language and learn the culture. For that, you can join the Free English Conversation Practice & Social Meetup, a friendly language conversation group in London every Tuesday. You will have fun while quickly improving your English! Also, learning English will help you make the most out of the many cultural events around London. For example, you will not want to miss the traditional hop on hop off bus tour! See the best of London without the stress of rigid tour times and massive crowds while listening to experienced guides who will tell you everything you need to know about the fascinating city of London. Most of these tours are only offered in English, so start studying today to make the most out of this experience.
