In depth: Our English Courses in Stoke

1:1 and Group English Courses in Stoke-on-Trent

With SIMON&SIMON, you can choose between 1:1 or group English lessons. Group lessons are excellent value and give you more opportunities for conversations as you are learning. We limit these groups to six students to ensure that each student spends enough time with the tutor. However, our 1:1 students make excellent progress as we can tailor the course content specifically to their needs and they receive the benefit of the tutor’s undivided attention.

English Course Management

Your course will be in the capable hands of one of our account managers, who are all multi-lingual as well as highly experienced and professional. Your account manager will be responsible for sending you your tutor’s profile, detailing his or her experience and credentials. In addition, your account manager will send you your course materials, course plan, and progress reports for each 30 to 40 hours of training that you undertake.

Stoke-on-Trent English Course Schedules

Your convenience means everything to us, and we want to be renowned as being the most accessible English course Stoke-on-Trent has to offer. This is why we run our courses throughout the year, allowing you to choose your schedule. We operate from 8am to 6pm, Monday to Friday, but can facilitate weekend lessons if you require them. Our students like to take as many lessons as they can per week, and the majority take at least one 90-minute lesson weekly. If you would like to hasten your learning, we offer an intensive course which runs from Monday to Friday for 6 hours per day, totalling 30 hours for the week. As with our other lessons, this can be held at your office or your place of residence.

English Course Content

You might wish to learn English for recreational use, or you may wish to learn business English for use in banking, marketing, finance, and the like. Whichever the case, we will assess your current level of English before you begin your course, as well as discuss your personal goals with you. We will then use this information to plan course content specifically for you and provide you with a language trainer that will help you reach your goals swiftly.

English Language Examination Courses

If you have any upcoming English examinations, we can provide assistance with your preparation. Thanks to the value of working with tutors of such vast experience, 95% of our students achieve passing grades in their examinations. We also offer assistance with the examination itself, being able to register you for the examination, administer it, and provide your results following your completion of the examination.

About English

English arose from the west-Germanic languages spoken by the Anglo-Saxon settlers in the medieval kingdom of Northumbria. As it spread, it underwent several changes, eventually evolving into the form that we speak today. This was introduced to the world in the 18th century thanks to the British Empire and its influence on politics, culture, science, warfare, and economics. Through influence on similar fields, the USA helped further the spread of English in the 20th century. As a result, English is widely spoken as a second language in many European and Commonwealth countries, and is the common language of communication amongst speakers of differing languages. In fact, English follows only Mandarin Chinese and Spanish in terms of global native speakers.

About Stoke-on-Trent

Stoke-on-Trent is a city in Staffordshire, England, which forms a linear conurbation almost 12 miles (19 km) long, with an area of 36 square miles (93 km2). Together with the Borough of Newcastle-under-Lyme Stoke forms The Potteries Urban Area. This, together with the rural Staffordshire Moorlands area, forms North Staffordshire, which in 2001, had a population of 457,165. The conurbation continues to be polycentric, having been formed by the federation of six originally separate towns and numerous villages in the early-20th century. The settlement from which the federated town (not a city until 1925) took its name was Stoke-upon-Trent, because this was where the administration (and chief mainline railway station) was located. After the union, Hanley emerged as the primary commercial centre in the city, despite the efforts of its rival, Burslem.

The three other component towns are Tunstall, Longton, and Fenton. Stoke-on-Trent is considered to be the home of the pottery industry in England and is commonly known as The Potteries. Formerly a primarily industrial conurbation, it is now a centre for service industries and distribution centres.

Assess Your English Level

The table below is based on recognised language levels used by various academic institutions across the European Union. A highly motivated student attending weekly sessions with their English language trainer in Stoke can expect to move from one level to another after 50 hours providing they also commit to a similar number of hours of self-study.

Of course, some people find learning languages easier than others, and some students will have more opportunities to practise English in the course of their work and leisure, so these factors also need to be considered when trying to assess how long it will take to move from one level to another.
