English Language Courses for Adults in the UK

Choosing a language course in England

When choosing an English course in the UK you must first decide where you would like to live and study for several weeks or months. It should be borne in mind that the cost of language courses may be much lower in smaller cities outside London, but the choice of language schools and educational programmes in these cities is not as large as in the capital.

Other important parameters to consider:

  • School reputation and teacher qualifications
  • Group size
  • Option to move to a higher level at any time
  • Average age of students at school

All language schools offer standard General English classes ranging in intensity from 15 to 25 hours per week. Professional courses, business English and preparation for the IELTS exam are not offered everywhere, so it is better to choose a school that has all the courses of interest to avoid moving from one school to another.

Documents for enrolment to a language school
  • Copy of valid passport
  • School registration fee
  • Language proficiency test

Accommodation options when studying at language schools in England

Most schools offer multiple accommodation options for the duration of the course. The most budget and popular option is living in modern, well-equipped student residences. All residences have a kitchen, laundry, lounge, gym and a library. Student residences have 24/7 security and concierge services. This option is ideal if you come for a few months and want to immerse yourself into the student life abroad.

Staying with a host family is ideal for those who come for a few weeks and would like to feel part of the ordinary English family. Students are offered a separate room with their own bathroom and 2 meals a day. Students can also choose serviced apartments within walking distance of the school. The apartments are equipped with a small kitchen and offer a 24-hour concierge service that will help you quickly settle into the life in a new city.

Pricing: registration fee £90-150; cost of language courses - from £1,200 per month
