We are an independent, friendly, boutique school which is accredited by the British Council for teaching English in the UK. We are your "home away from home". The skills you develop during your course at Languages United will stay with you throughout your life, giving you new experiences, new opportunities, new friends and a new window through which to view the world.
Languages United provides English language courses for individuals and groups, adults and juniors, throughout the year. As well as General English, in the past we have run specialist courses such as English with Floristry, English with Aromatherapy, English with Jane Austen, English with Football.
Our lessons and activities are integrated to give each student real-world situations where they can use and improve their English.
Students develop social and personal skills through interacting with other students from different parts of the world, and gain insight into living in a different country.
Our teachers are all qualified teachers of English who aim to inspire, motivate and empower their students to use and develop their skills.
We understand that our younger students are going away from their home and parents. Our Welfare Team provides care and support for both students and parents. We are available to help before the student arrives and throughout their stay.
Our students have the potential to make an impact on the world. We aim to develop their skills for life - not just their communication skills, but their understanding of other cultures, their teamwork and leadership skills and their confidence in their own abilities.
Our courses get students talking to each other, discussing topics that make them think critically about the world around them and giving them an understanding of how people see the world. They start to view themselves as global citizens and learn that language is the key tool to develop cross-cultural links.
We expect our students to respect this global diversity and to follow the rules that are put in place to embrace and protect our differences.
With our social responsibility projects students learn about those less fortunate than themselves and do work to help them.
