In depth: Our English Courses in Cumbria

1:1 and Group English Courses in Cumbria

We adapt our courses to suit either groups or one-to-one students. Group lessons are excellent value for money, and present great opportunities for conversation. We ensure that group students receive enough time with the tutor by requesting a maximum of six students. Our 1:1 students tend to make slightly faster progress due to our ability to tailor the course content to their specific needs.

English Course Management

When you enrol with us we will assign one of our highly-experienced, multi-lingual account managers to your course. Your account manager will be responsible for sending you your course material, course plan, and a profile detailing your tutor’s credentials. Your account manager will also monitor your progress and, after every 30 to 40 hours of training, send you progress reports.

English Course Locations & Schedules

While we aim to host the most comprehensive English course Cumbria has to offer, our reach goes further than this region. We are able to offer lessons in many major cities throughout Europe, and further abroad, thanks to a wide network of committed English tutors. To ensure that your need to travel is minimised, we are able to host lessons at your workplace or even your own home. For more on the locations we service, please contact our London office.

Cumbria English Course Schedules

At SIMON&SIMON we give you the freedom to choose your own schedule, which is why we run our courses throughout the year. We operate between the hours of 8 am and 6 pm, Monday to Friday, but we can arrange weekend lessons should you require them. We also run a 30-hour intensive course from Monday to Friday, 6 hours a day. This, like our other lessons, can be held at your workplace or your home in Cumbria.

English Course Content

Before you begin your course, we will assess your current level of English as well as discuss your goals with you. Your target may be Business English, for example, or you may want to learn conversational English for recreational purposes. We will take this into account and design a custom-made course for you. We will then assign one of our tutors to help you realise your goals quickly and effectively.

English Language Examination Courses

We can provide preparation assistance for any English examinations you might need to take, whether for business or otherwise. Our tutors’ experience and expertise is such that they have helped our students to a 95% pass-rate. In addition to this expert assistance, we can help with examination registration and administration as well as the issuing of results.

About English

English developed from the West Germanic languages spoken by the Anglo Saxons in the ancient kingdom of Northumbria. The language underwent several stages of development before it became the language we speak today around the 15th century. In the 18th century, the British Empire’s influence on politics, economics, warfare, colonialism, and culture led to the language being spread across the globe. Its popularity increased in the 20th century as a result of the United States’ influence on similar fields. Today, English is widely spoken across the globe and is the accepted language of international communication. Only the native speakers of Mandarin Chinese and Spanish outnumber native English speakers.

About Cumbria

Cumbria is a non-metropolitan county in North West England, United Kingdom. Cumbria, and a new local authority called Cumbria County Council, came into existence as a county in 1974 after the passage of the Local Government Act 1972. The county consists of six districts, and in 2008 had a total population of just under half a million. Cumbria as a whole is one of the most sparsely populated counties in the UK with 73.4 people per km2 (190/sq mi). Despite this, the Borough of Barrow-in-Furness has a population density over twelves times this at 921/km2 (2,385.3/sq mi).

Cumbria, the third largest ceremonial county in England by area, is bounded to the north by the Scottish council area of Dumfries and Galloway, to the west by the Irish Sea, to the south by Lancashire, to the southeast by North Yorkshire, and to the east by County Durham and Northumberland. A predominantly rural county, Cumbria contains the Lake District and associated Lake District National Park, considered one of the most beautiful areas of England. The area has provided inspiration for generations of British and foreign artists, writers and musicians. Much of the county is mountainous, and it contains every peak in England over 900 metres (3,000 ft) above sea level, with Scafell Pike at 978 metres (3,209 ft) being the highest point in England. Long existing as an upland, coastal and rural area, Cumbria’s heritage is characterised by a broad number of invasions, migration and settlement.

Assess Your English Level

The following table details the levels of English accepted by leading language institutions across the EU. This can be used to assess your level of English development and plan your future progress. Through frequent, tutored lessons and similar amounts of self-study, it is possible to progress 1 level for every 50 hours of training.

When planning your progress, bear in mind that your progress might differ from this projection. This is because certain students learn faster and have more opportunities for conversation and practice. Use this table as a rough guide only and avoid placing unnecessary pressure on yourself as a result of it.
