What to look for in a language school


Once you have made the adventurous decision to learn English in another country, you need to research the best language school for you.

Here are some tips to make sure you get the most out of your language learning experience.

One of the most important things to do is look at how much the course costs and how many hours or weeks each course is. Check to see if books are included in this cost, as they could be an added expense. It is also a good idea to ask about the sizes of the classes. In order to receive enough individual attention, classes shouldn’t be larger than sixteen students.

It is also important to check whether the class is taught online at any point, as you will benefit more from in-class hours with a teacher that you can interact with. In addition, good language schools will insist on having properly qualified, mother-tongue English speakers on their teaching staff.  Any course you do should also be accredited so that you can make sure the content and standards are checked on a regular basis.

These points should help you with choosing a great language school for your journey into English fluency.
