In depth: Our English Courses in Ashford

1:1 and Group English Courses in Ashford

We offer our English courses as either 1:1 sessions or as group lessons. Group lessons offer considerable benefits, such as excellent value for money and the opportunity for conversation with multiple speakers. Furthermore, by limiting our groups to a maximum of six members, we ensure each student has enough time with the tutor. That being said, students taking one-on-one classes make rapid progress due to our ability to tailor the course to their needs.

English Course Management

During your time with SIMON&SIMON you will be in the capable hands of one of our account managers, who are highly experienced, extremely professional, and all multi-lingual. Your account manager will send you a profile detailing your tutor’s credentials and background prior to your course, as well as send you your course plan, course materials, and progress reports after every 30 to 40 hours of training.

About English

English developed from the west-Germanic languages spoken in the 5th century by the Anglo-Saxon settlers. Though its use began in the kingdom of Northumbria, it soon began to spread across the nation and undergo several stages of refinement. Its range took an international scale during the 18th century when the British Empire’s influence on politics, science, economics, warfare, and culture began to boom. Through influence on similar fields, the USA helped develop the popularity of English in the 20th century, leading to it being spoken widely as a second language throughout the world. As a native language, English is extremely popular with its speakers being outnumbered only by speakers of Mandarin Chinese and Spanish. Its universality makes English the ideal choice for a common language between speakers of different languages.

About Ashford

Located in the county of Kent, Ashford is a picturesque town situated on the river Stour. The town takes its name from an Old English word, ‘æscet’, which refers to a shallow river crossing, or ford, located near a cluster of ash trees.

Though relatively small, with a population of around 74,000, Ashford has continued to thrive since its establishment as a market town in the 13th century. In the 19th century, the town benefitted from the Industrial Revolution and became the meeting point of five rail lines. Today, the town continues to be an important rail link, facilitating travel between London and the Channel Tunnel.

With features such as the Ashford Designer Outlet and the Templer Barracks, Ashford remains a relatively small but significant British town.

Assess Your English Level

Using the language levels pertinent to many European Union universities and institutions, we have created the following table. This details the progress that a highly motivated language student can expect to make. With weekly sessions, you can expect to move up a level for every 50 hours of training, provided you can commit a similar amount of time to self-study and practice.

Some students adapt more easily to language learning, and some have more opportunities for conversational practice. These factors should also be considered while determining the amount of time you might need to progress through these levels.
