About English

English has undergone a considerable transformation since its beginnings as an offshoot of the west-Germanic languages spoken by the Anglo-Saxons. The modern language grew through several phases of development, spreading first throughout the United Kingdom in its early years and then later across the globe under the British Empire. Thanks to Britain’s influence on politics, warfare, science, economics, and culture, the English language became important to modern knowledge, and this was compounded by the influence of the United States in the 20th century. Today, English is widely spoken throughout the world and is commonly used between speakers of different languages. It also has a large amount of native speakers, ranking third after Mandarin Chinese and Spanish.

About Belfast

Belfast is the capital of and largest city in Northern Ireland, as well as the second largest city in Ireland. It is the seat of devolved government and legislative Northern Ireland Assembly. The city forms part of the largest urban area in Northern Ireland, and the main settlement in the province of Ulster.

The city of Belfast has a population of 267,500 and lies at the heart of the Belfast urban area, which has a population of 483,418. The Larger Urban Zone, as defined by the European Union, has a total population 641,638. Belfast was granted city status in 1888. Historically, Belfast has been a centre for the Irish linen industry (earning the nickname “Linenopolis”), tobacco production, rope-making and shipbuilding: the city’s main shipbuilders, Harland and Wolff, which built the ill-fated RMS Titanic, propelled Belfast on to the global stage in the early 20th century as the largest and most productive shipyard in the world.

Belfast played a key role in the Industrial Revolution, establishing its place as a global industrial centre until the latter half of the 20th century.

Assess Your English Level

We have compiled the following table, which is in line with those used by academic institutions across the European Union. This shows the various levels of business English, and you can use it to assess your current level of English and plan your language targets. A typical student undergoing weekly lessons with us should move up one level for every 50 hours of training, provided he or she puts in equal time with regards to practice and self-study.

This table is merely for assessment purposes. Since students develop at varying rates, and some have more conversational opportunities, advancement may be slower or faster than estimated.
