About English

English arose from the West Germanic languages spoken by the Anglo-Saxons in the ancient kingdom of Northumbria. The language underwent several phases of development over the centuries, eventually becoming the language we speak today. This was introduced to the world under the influence of the British Empire, and later the sway of the United States. As a result, English is now the common language of international communication and is widely spoken as a first or second language around the world. Its native speakers are only outnumbered by speakers of Mandarin Chinese and Spanish.

About Berkshire

Berkshire is a historic county in the South East of England. It is also often referred to as the Royal County of Berkshire because of the presence of the royal residence of Windsor Castle in the county; this usage, which dates to the 19th century at least, was recognised by the Queen in 1958, and letters patent issued confirming this in 1974.

Berkshire borders the counties of Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Surrey, Wiltshire and Hampshire, and is usually regarded as one of the home counties. Under boundary changes in 1995, it also acquired a boundary with Greater London. Historically the county town was Abingdon, but in 1867 the town of Reading – by then much larger – superseded Abingdon in this role. In 1974 local government reorganisation moved Abingdon and several other north-west Berkshire towns into Oxfordshire.

A later reorganisation, in 1998, abolished Berkshire County Council, although retaining Berkshire as a ceremonial county. The highest tier of local government in Berkshire are now the unitary authorities of Bracknell Forest, Reading, Slough, West Berkshire, Windsor and Maidenhead and Wokingham.

Assess Your English Level

There are certain language levels recognised by academic institutions throughout the EU, and these are represented in the table below. You may use this table to assess your current level of English and gain some knowledge about how to progress. For every 50 hours of training with your tutor, and equal time spent on home study, a committed student can expect to move up one level.

It is also important to remember that this is only a guide. Every student progresses at a different pace and you may find that your development is slightly faster or slightly slower than this projection. Take this into account when attempting to plan your progress.
