In depth: Our English Courses in Blackburn

1:1 and Group English Courses in Blackburn

We offer our English courses as either 1:1 lessons or group sessions. Our group lessons offer exceptional value, and we limit groups to six students to ensure that each student receives sufficient time with the tutor. But, our students taking 1:1 lessons do tend to make better progress as this allows the tutor to cater for the specific needs of the student.

English Course Management

One of our highly experienced, multi-lingual account managers will oversee your course with us as well as send you your course materials, course plan, profile on your tutor’s experience, and a progress report for every 30 to 40 hours of tutelage.

English Course Locations & Schedules

In addition to offering the most comprehensive and effective course, we aim to offer the most convenient English course Blackburn has available. This is why we have created a network of tutors able to offer our services in many major cities across Europe and the rest of the world. For added convenience, lessons can be arranged at your workplace or even your home. Please contact us at our London office for more information on our worldwide services.

Blackburn English Course Schedules

We typically operate between 8am and 6pm, Monday to Friday, all year long. However, if you require weekend lessons, these can be arranged. You are free to choose your own schedule, though many of our students make the most progress through taking at least one lesson per week. We also offer an intensive course which runs from Monday to Friday for 6 hours a day, totalling 30 hours per week. This, like our regular lessons, can be held at your office or the comfort of your home.

English Course Content

At SIMON&SINMON we tailor your course content based on your individual goals. You may, for example, simply wish to learn English for travel or relocation purposes. Conversely, you might want to learn business English to further your career. We work with you to determine your targets as well as your current level of English and then have your tutor design a course that is tailor-made for you, and that will help you reach your goals effectively.

English Language Examination Courses

If you have an upcoming English test or examination, SIMON&SIMON can help you prepare. Our tutors are highly-experienced, which has allowed them to help our students achieve a pass-rate of 95% in examinations. In addition to assistance with preparation, we are also able to assist with examination registration, the administration of the exam, as well as the issuing of your results.

About English

English evolved from the West Germanic languages spoken by the Anglo-Saxons in medieval Northumbria. This language, now unrecognisable, underwent several phases of development until it became the language we now speak today. This was given a global stage as a result of the expansion of the British Empire in the 18th century, as well as the influence of the USA in the 20th century. English is now widely spoken as a first or second language across the globe, and is the unofficially designated language of international conversation. Such is its popularity that its native speakers are only outnumbered by speakers of Mandarin Chinese and Spanish.

About Blackburn

Blackburn is a large industrial town in Lancashire, England. It lies to the north of the West Pennine Moors on the southern edge of the Ribble Valley, 8.9 miles (14.3 km) east of the city of Preston, 21 miles (34 km) north-northwest of the city of Manchester. and is 8 miles (12.9 km) north of the border with Greater Manchester. Blackburn is bounded to the south by Darwen, with which it forms the unitary authority area of Blackburn with Darwen, Blackburn being the administrative centre. At the time of the UK Government’s 2001 census, Blackburn had a population of 105,085, whilst the wider borough of Blackburn with Darwen had a population of 137,470. A former mill town, textiles have been produced in Blackburn since the middle of the 13th century, when wool was woven in people’s houses in the domestic system. Flemish weavers who settled in the area during the 14th century helped to develop the woollen cottage industry in the region. James Hargreaves, inventor of the spinning jenny, was a weaver in Blackburn.

The most rapid period of growth and development in Blackburn’s history coincided with the industrialisation and expansion of textile manufacturing. Blackburn was a boomtown of the Industrial Revolution, and amongst the first industrialised towns in the world. Blackburn’s textile sector fell into a terminal decline from the mid-20th century. Blackburn has subsequently faced similar challenges to other post-industrial northern towns, including deindustrialisation, economic deprivation and housing issues.

Assess Your English Level

The following table is based on the levels of English stipulated by prominent English language institutions in the European Union. You may use this to assess your current level of English and identify the criteria necessary to progress. For approximately every 50 hours of tutored learning, and equal time spent studying on your own, you should move up one level.

It is important to remember that this is only a guideline. Different students progress at different rates, and some have more opportunities for practice. Keep in mind that your development could be faster or slower than this projection.
