The time for setting New Year’s resolutions fast approaches. How many times have you firmly resolved to learn a language but the end of the year sees that goal remain unreached? For those who are looking to stick to their resolutions in 2012 and study English in London, St George International language school is worth considering.
At this London school English courses for general purposes are not all that’s on offer. Business English is also very popular. A common desire of English language students is that they perfect their business English skills. Unsurprisingly, many students either travel to, or are already living in London and feel a business English course would help them to get ahead. SGI offers a wide range of Business English lessons which are tailored to the areas of focus and level of the student. Both morning and afternoon group class options are available and range from four to 30 hours a week in length. One-to-one tuition is also on offer and is tailored to each student and the English skills they need to build on. The Business English Writing course takes place in smaller groups and in the evenings. This focuses on perfecting business English writing skills such as are required for emails, C.V’s and reports. St George International can also arrange the BULATS (the online business orientated language test) to be taken by students at any time.
The school’s current students certainly seem to feel that SGI is worth the while and the school’s recent student survey is evidence of this. The school received excellent feedback from students from August to October of 2011, with 98% of students saying they would recommend the school.
The student survey also revealed that not only would a very high percentage of students recommend the school but teachers have received consistently positive feedback also. The average teacher score (as rated by students) for August of 2011 was 8.83, September was 9 and October was an even more impressive 9.3. As a student, having faith in the capabilities of your teacher is obviously of extreme importance. Furthermore, 99% of students surveyed in both August and October felt their English had improved, with 97% of students surveyed in September cited an improvement. Many of these students felt their English was of such a level that they could now progress to studying at university in English.
If you’re determined to stick to your New Year’s resolution for 2012, it’s advisable to book early. Courses do get booked up and the New Year can be a specifically busy period.
The school was started in 1962 and remains to this day, a family run company. The school is very centrally located in Fitzrovia and is a two minute walk from Oxford St tube station. Aside from its London branch, St George International also has schools in Brighton, Oxford and Cambridge. SGI is accredited for its English language teaching by the British Council and also, by Trinity College London for its English language teacher training courses.
