My name is Christina and I am from Germany. I spent a fantastic time at British Study Centres!..
Classes are small and multinational, with an average of 11 students. This enables our teachers to focus on your individual aims and interests to help you improve your English in a way which is relevant to you.
We are really proud to have students from around 35 countries at any one time! This is a great opportunity to get to know people from different cultures and make your stay at British Study Centres a truly unforgettable experience!
We use an innovative, communicative approach to teaching. Lessons are fun and interactive with a high level of student involvement. As well as using stimulating and contemporary materials, we employ a variety of different methodologies. We believe that a warm and friendly environment is essential for effective learning and our commitment to high standards of achievement ensures that your time at the school is a rewarding experience.
You will be individually assessed both on arrival and throughout the course. We give you a written and oral test on your first day and monitor your progress regularly. If you have achieved satisfactory attendance (85%+), you receive a certificate and a report signed by Academic Management at the end of your stay. These are very useful tools to show employers when looking for a new job.
We keep our teaching team up to date with the latest ideas in EFL teaching in a number of ways. We have staff meetings every week, and training sessions (every other Friday afternoon) when we introduce new ideas and techniques as well as discuss the particular needs of students who might be having problems, and plan for the future. To have regular meetings like this is unusual in a language school, but we believe it is the only way we can maintain the proper level of professionalism and care.
