SIMON & SIMON offers English language courses in Leicester 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.

At SIMON&SIMON, we don’t adopt a generic approach to each student. Instead, we tailor our English courses in Leicester to the individual needs of every one of our students. We use the skills of our acclaimed team of tutors in order to design a course for you that is based upon your strengths and weaknesses as a speaker, and caters specifically your level of English proficiency.

We ensure that your Leicester English course will be productive and enjoyable through our modern teaching methods. One such method is the Communicative Approach, in which the majority of your course will be taught in English, thereby enhancing your grasp on the language. Furthermore, we make sure that you are in good hands by sending you a profile on your tutor prior to your course. This will detail your tutor’s experience and background information.

In depth: Our English Courses in Leicester

1:1 and Group English Courses in Leicester

We offer our Leicester English courses in both a 1:1 and group basis. Students tend to make the most significant progress through individual (1:1) lessons as this allows us to truly tailor our course work to their needs. However, group lessons are very affordable and allow opportunities for diverse conversational scenarios. We do limit our groups to a maximum of 6 members, however, as this ensures that each student gets sufficient time with the tutor.

English Course Management

Overseeing your progress will be one of our very professional, multi-lingual Account Managers. Your Account Manager will send you a progress report following each 30 to 40 hours of training as well as send you your course materials and course plan. Your Account Manager will also compile and send you your tutor’s profile, containing that tutor’s experience and background information.

English Course Locations & Schedules

Our network of language trainers extends across the globe, allowing us to offer our services in many major European cities and various other cities across the world. These courses are built for your convenience and can thus be arranged either at your office or even at your own home. For more on our global reach, please contact our London office on 020 7821 0999.

Leicester English Course Schedules

We run our English courses in Leicester throughout the year, typically from 8am to 6pm on weekdays, though weekend lessons can be arranged upon request. You are free to choose the frequency of your lessons, though most of our students make the most progress through taking at least one 90-minute lesson per week. We also offer an intensive course, which runs Monday to Friday for 6 hours a day, totalling 30 hours per week. This can be arranged at a leisure centre in Leicester or at your business premises.

English Course Content

The first step of your English course will be an assessment in which we determine your level of English and ascertain your desired area of focus. You might, for example, want to learn business English for the purpose of banking or marketing. On the other hand, you might simply want to learn conversational English for the purpose of travelling, or perhaps settling in an English-speaking country. At SIMON&SIMON, we pay special attention to your goals and customise a course that is specific to those goals.

English Language Examination Courses

We have the resources to assist you with preparation for a business English examination, or any other type of English examination that you need to take. Our tutors’ vast and considerable experience has helped our students achieve a 95% pass-rate, and we can use this experience to help you in your preparation. In addition, we can assist with registration, mediation, and results issuing.

About English

English is a derivative of the West Germanic settlers that came to Britain in the 5th century AD. It spread across what was then the medieval kingdom of Northumbria, evolving as it did. It spread across the globe under the influence of the 18th century British Empire, via disciplines such as politics, military tactics, science, economics, and culture. The influence of the USA on these same disciplines in the 20th century further perpetuated the English language. Now, English is the language of international communication and is frequently used as the language of communication for speakers of different languages when a common language is needed. English is also widely spoken as a second language, and its native speakers are only outnumbered by speakers of Spanish and Mandarin Chinese.

About Leicester

Leicester is a city and unitary authority area in the East Midlands area of England. It is also the county town of Leicestershire. The city lies on the River Soar and at the edge of the National Forest. In 2006, the population of the Leicester unitary authority was estimated at 289,700, the largest in the East Midlands, whilst 441,213 people lived in the wider Leicester Urban Area. Eurostat’s Larger Urban Zone listed the population of the area at 772,400 people as of 2004. Leicester is the 10th most populous settlement in the United Kingdom using the 2001 census definitions and the urban area is the fifteenth largest conurbation in the UK, the second largest in the region behind the Nottingham Urban Area. Ancient Roman pavements and baths remain in Leicester from its early settlement as Ratae Corieltauvorum, a Roman military outpost in a region inhabited by the Celtic Corieltauvi tribe. Following the demise of Roman society the early medieval Ratae Corieltauvorum is shrouded in obscurity, but when the settlement was captured by the Danes it became one of five fortified towns important to the Danelaw.

The name “Leicester” is thought to derive from the words castra of the “Ligore”, meaning a camp on the River Legro, an early name for the River Soar. Leicester appears in the Domesday Book as “Ledecestre”. Leicester continued to grow throughout the Early Modern period as a market town, although it was the Industrial Revolution that facilitated an unparalleled process of unplanned urbanisation in the area.
