SIMON & SIMON offers English language courses in Cornwall to both professionals and non-professionals alike. SIMON & SIMON’s team of English language trainers are made up of native speakers who on average have 15 years of experience teaching the language, as they are all fully qualified teachers.

Fully tailored to your specific needs.

Our goal at SIMON&SIMON is to host the most effective English course Cornwall has to offer. This is why we put your needs first, tailoring the course content to your specific strengths and weaknesses. We assess your current level of English and then design your course around your requirements. We also provide one of our highly-praised tutors to guide you through your course, and send you a profile on that tutor before you begin.

Much has changed over the past few years with regards to language learning, and we use many modern techniques to ensure that your business English course in Cornwall is as enjoyable as it is effective. One such technique is the Communicative Approach – an approach in which the majority of your course will be taught in English, helping you adapt to the language. Through our methods, you’ll soon be a confident English speaker in a variety of settings, whether business or social.

In depth: Our English Courses in Cornwall

1:1 and Group English Courses in Cornwall

Our courses cater to individuals as well as groups. Our individual lessons allow us to tailor the course content to the needs of the student, which allows for faster progress. Our group lessons, however, do offer exceptional value for money and we ensure sufficient time with the tutor by limiting our groups to six members.

English Course Management

Your English course will be overseen by one of our multi-lingual, highly-professional account managers. Your account manager will be responsible for sending you your course material, course plan, and a profile detailing your tutor’s background and experience. You will also be sent a progress report for every 30 to 40 hours of training.

English Course Locations & Schedules

While we aim to offer the finest English course Cornwall has to offer, we do not limit ourselves to this one location. Thanks to a large network of English tutors that we have created, we are able to offer our services in many major cities throughout the world. To further offer convenience, we are able to offer lessons either at your office or even from your own home. For more on the locations we offer, please contact our London office.

Cornwall English Course Schedules

We run our courses in Cornwall throughout the year, allowing you to choose a schedule that best suits you. We typically operate from Monday to Friday, 8 am to 6 pm, but we are able to host lessons over the weekend if required. We also offer intensive courses at your home or office. These are available for 6 hours per day from Monday to Friday.

English Course Content

At SIMON&SIMON we customise your course content to suit your level of experience and your future goals. You may wish to learn Business English for business use, or you may wish to learn conversational English for recreation. We take this into account, along with your current grasp of the language, and design your course to help you meet your targets effectively.

English Language Examination Courses

If you need to take an English examination, for business or other reasons, we are happy to help you with your preparations. Our tutors are highly skilled in this area and, as such, have helped our students achieve a 95 percent pass-rate. In addition to preparation, we can register you for the examination, administer it, and issue you with your results following completion.

About English

English arose from the West Germanic languages spoken by the Anglo Saxon settlers in medieval Britain. This language evolved through the years, eventually becoming the form of English that we speak today. This language achieved a global stage as a result of the British Empire and its influence on politics, science, warfare, and culture. The language achieved further popularity in the 20th century due to the similar influences of the United States. Today, English is the common language of international discourse and is widely spoken throughout many countries of the world. In fact, its native speakers are only outnumbered by speakers of Mandarin Chinese and Spanish.

About Cornwall

Cornwall is a ceremonial county and unitary authority of England, United Kingdom, forming the tip of the south-western peninsula of Great Britain. It is bordered to the north and west by the Atlantic Ocean, to the south by the English Channel, and to the east by the county of Devon, over the River Tamar. Including the Isles of Scilly, Cornwall has a population of 534,300, and covers an area of 3,563 km2 (1,376 sq mi). The administrative centre and only city is Truro. The area now known as Cornwall was first inhabited in the Palaeolithic and Mesolithic periods. It continued to be occupied by Neolithic and then Bronze Age peoples, and later (in the Iron Age) by Celts. There is little evidence that Roman rule was effective west of Exeter and few Roman remains have been found.

Cornwall was a division of the Dumnonii tribe―whose tribal centre was in the modern county of Devon―known as the Cornovii, separated from Wales after the Battle of Deorham, often coming into conflict with the expanding English kingdom of Wessex before King Athelstan in AD 936 set the boundary between English and Cornish people at the Tamar. Historically tin mining was important in the Cornish economy, becoming significant during the Middle Ages and expanding greatly during the 19th century when rich copper mines were also in production. In the mid-nineteenth century, however, the tin and copper trades entered a period of decline. Subsequently china clay extraction became more important and metal mining had virtually ended by the 1990s.

Assess Your English Level

The following table reflects the various levels of English development as recognised by leading institutions across the European Union. You may use this to assess your current level of English as well as plan out your future progress. It is possible to progress one level for every 50 hours of tutored training, provided you match this time with self-study.

When assessing how long it may take you to reach your goal, remember that different students progress at different rates. Some students take to languages faster than others, while some have more opportunities to practise the language, which means that the projected progress time might fluctuate.
