In depth: Our English Courses in Bradford

1:1 and Group English Courses in Bradford

We offer our courses both as group lessons and as one-to-one sessions. Group lessons are excellent value, and we ensure that each student receives sufficient tutelage by limiting our groups to a maximum of 6 members. Our 1:1 students benefit from the undivided attention of the tutor as well as our ability to tailor the course content to their needs, meaning that our one-to-one students make faster progress.

English Course Management

We will place one of our highly-professional, multi-lingual account managers in charge of your course. Your account manager will monitor your progress and send you progress reports after each 30 to 40 hours of training. Your account manager will also be responsible for sending you important materials, such as your course plan, course materials, and a profile on your tutor prior to your course.

English Course Locations & Schedules

In addition to being the best, we also want to be renowned for the most convenient English course Bradford has to offer. This is precisely why we limit your need to travel by bringing the lessons to either your workplace or your home. We also offer our services outside of Bradford. In fact, thanks to our network of brilliant tutors, we offer our services in most major European cities and many other cities throughout the world.

Bradford English Course Schedules

We run our courses throughout the year, Monday to Friday, 8am to 6pm. And, if need be, we can accommodate weekend lessons. We give you the freedom to choose your own schedule, though most of our students choose to take at least a single lesson per week. We also run an intensive course which covers 30 hours a week – running 6 hours a day from Monday to Friday. This, along with our other lessons, can be held at your home or your workplace in Bradford.

English Course Content

At SIMON&SIMON we tailor our course content based on your specific needs. Before you begin your course, we will assess your level of English and discuss your goals with you, determining the type of English you wish to learn. You might, for instance, want to learn basic English for conversational use or you might want to expand your knowledge of English to include business English for professional use. Whichever the case, we take your goals into account and design your course content to help you reach them effectively.

English Language Examination Courses

If you have an upcoming English examination, our tutors can help you with your preparation. Such is their experience and skill that they have helped our students reach a 95% pass-rate. In addition to preparation, we are able to assist with examination registration and administration, as well as the issuing of results.

About English

The English language can be traced back to the Anglo-Saxons of Northumbria, having begun as a derivative of their West Germanic languages. Modern English came about as the result of several phases of development, moving from Old English through Middle English before becoming the language we now speak. This language was spread across the world in the 18th century under the British Empire, and was made even more popular in the 20th century thanks to the influence of the United States. As a result, English is now a prevalent language for international communication and is widely spoken in many European and Commonwealth countries. In fact, English follows only Mandarin Chinese and Spanish in terms of global native speakers.

About Bradford

Bradford lies at the heart of the City of Bradford, a metropolitan borough of West Yorkshire, in Northern England. It is situated in the foothills of the Pennines, 8.6 miles (13.8 km) west of Leeds, and 16 miles (25.7 km) northwest of Wakefield. Bradford became a municipal borough in 1847, and received its charter as a city in 1897. Following local government reform in 1974, city status was bestowed upon the wider metropolitan borough.

Bradford has a population of 293,717, making it the thirteenth-most populous settlement in the UK. Bradford forms part of the West Yorkshire Urban Area conurbation which in 2001 had a population of 1.5 million and is part of the Leeds-Bradford Larger Urban Zone (LUZ), the third largest in the UK after London and Manchester, with an estimated population in the 2004 Urban Audit of 2.4 million. Historically a part of the West Riding of Yorkshire, Bradford rose to prominence during the 19th century as an international centre of textile manufacture, particularly wool. It was a boomtown of the Industrial Revolution, and amongst the earliest industrialised settlements, rapidly becoming the “wool capital of the world”. The area’s access to a supply of coal, iron ore and soft water facilitated the growth of Bradford’s manufacturing base, which, as textile manufacture grew, led to an explosion in population and was a stimulus to civic investment; Bradford has fine Victorian architecture including the grand Italianate City Hall.

Assess Your English Level

The table below represents the phases of English development as regarded by top academic institutions throughout Europe. You may use this to assess your current level of English proficiency and plan your progression. On average, a highly dedicated student can move up one level for every 50 hours spent working with a tutor, and matching this time with practice and self-study.

This projection is only a guide, and it is important to remember that different students learn at different rates. Your progression might be faster or slightly slower based on your skill for adapting to languages and your opportunities for practice.
