Why Go Intensive?

Intensive courses have a number of advantages over regular classes:


  • You’ll be able to progress more quickly, thanks to the increased exposure to the language
  • You’ll learn in a more immersive environment
  • You’ll have more opportunities to practice speaking and listening
  • You’ll benefit from a higher level of individual attention.

We understand that not everyone learns at the same pace, which is why our intensive language courses are designed to be totally flexible. You can take as many or as few classes as you like each week, and we’ll tailor the content of each class to your individual needs.

Not only will you see a noticeable improvement in your language skills after just a few weeks on one of our intensive courses, but you’ll also get to experience the language and culture first-hand. Simon & Simon’s experienced and qualified native-speaking tutors will help to immerse you in the language, giving you a real taste of what it’s like to speak like a local.

Intensive Language Courses FAQs

How many language schools offer intensive language courses?

Many language schools offer intensive language courses. However, the number of hours per week and the length of the course vary depending on the school and the programme. To choose the right language school for you, find one with an appropriate start date that covers speaking, writing and general communication in your chosen language.

Do you offer intensive English language courses?

Currently, we only offer intensive courses in Arabic, French and Spanish. However, if you’re in need of a boost in business English skills for your business, our English Language Training Course length and intensity can always be adjusted to suit a swifter timeline. Alternatively, if you need to learn more about British culture in the workplace, our Cross-Cultural Training course could be perfect for you.

What is the minimum age for an intensive language course?

Most intensive language courses have a minimum age of 18 as they are adult programmes. If you are looking for an intensive language course for a minor, your best bet is to contact the language school directly to check or look at investing in some extra-curricular activities around language skills instead.

How many hours per week is an intensive course?

Lesson time will vary depending on the school and the programme. At Simon and Simon, our intensive courses offer both half-day and full-day options to suit your needs and schedule. You can also choose whether to go super intensive with a one-week course or lessen the intensity with anywhere up to a four-week course.
