Career Education Blog


English is the de-facto international language of today. While this status is entirely unofficial, English is the most commonly learnt language and is viewed as an 'essential' for all ambitious people. This means that the demand for English courses and qualified English teachers has never been higher. English language learning is available all over the world but many people still choose to visit England in order to study.

If you want to learn a language London is well stocked with language schools, although it should be noted that different schools cater for different needs and there can be a significant difference in cost. Some language schools, for example, are aimed at younger teenagers who are in London for a two week language holiday and would rather be exploring one of the world's great cities than knuckling down and studying gerunds. Other language courses are aimed at people who will be in town for a longer period of time and may well be holding down a job to finance their stay. A third kind of language course which is becoming more and more prominent is aimed at new arrivals in the United Kingdom who need basic English to function properly in society.

If you want to learn English London is not the cheapest place to do it but does offer a fantastic assortment of things to do when not in the classroom. Many language schools organise tours to famous landmarks, trips to football matches and nights out in tourist-friendly parts of town. You will also meet a whole array of students from around the world who are in the same situation as you and are keen to meet people and make friends.

Older learners who choose to learn English UK are more likely to be doing so for business purposes. Many businesses are based in or around London and many more have their UK or European headquarters in the city. This means that a lot of people from around the world are sent to work in London every year and need to learn English or improve their English to properly carry out their jobs. Business courses are often taught on a one-to-one basis or in much smaller groups than those catering to teenagers on a language holiday or immigrants on government-funded courses.

If you are looking for an English course in London be sure to choose the right school and course for your needs. Not all language schools are what they seem and you should always do as much research as possible before handing over any money. It is often best to go by a personal recommendation; if this is not possible, try speaking to the school by telephone (language barriers permitting, of course).

Bearing all this in mind, if youíve already cracked English, thereís no reason to stop there! There are advanced English courses for professionals, teaching you relevant and specialised vocabularly and of course, there are other languages to learn too. Like English, German is another language which is frequently used throughout the business world for there is an immense amount of industry there. A basic German course Berlin could put you on your way to an entirely new and international career so donít think language learning ever has a ďstopĒ point!

Language learning really can take you anywhere! If you donít choose to use your new found English language skills for business, donít forget that they can still help you in many other areas of life Ė from making friends and serving the community to volunteering abroad and working for charity. It could be you make friends on a fair trade purse making project in a deprived third world area or you meet them in a high class bar in New York Ė English is everywhere and learning it will widen your horizons to an extent you couldnít begin to imagine!
