Which school?

It is very difficult, sometimes, to find the most appropriate school for your language needs. If you live in London, for example, on one side you do have a wide range of educational institutions you can chose from but, on the other hand, unfortunately, being able to assess and find the best English school in London for you is not an easy task as it would seem. This town does offer such a diverse and, yet, heterogeneous number of schools to the extent that, eventually, sometimes we don’t seem to be able to find the perfect one for us.

How do we decide? What are we looking for? What are the elements and services which we have to consider and analyze before we decide where to enroll, how long for and which course to attend? Not an easy task, of course, but, perhaps we can keep in mind the saying “keep it simple” and, most probably, we’ll succeed. Here are our suggestions. Your knowledge of the language needs to be assessed by the school of English, so they need to have this facility before you start anything. They need to be easily accessible from anywhere in town but, at the same time, they also need to be able to support you remotely (via WhatsApp, Skype, Messenger, for example) at any given time, even if you don’t physically attend their courses; they need to provide you with tutors/teachers whose curricula can be found on their website or anywhere else easily accessible; they should be available to discuss your needs in order to tailor their services to your requirements, mostly. It would be also a great plus if they also could manage to set up and encourage extra-curricular activities amongst the students as well as with their tutors/teachers such as museum visits, ad hoc “daily life” learning courses, cinemas, theatre, etc.

Tools are the most important thing and, hence, you should be given books without having to go and search for them in bookshops or to buy them online. Basically, the best English school in London should be able to give you the most suitable service ever in order for you to be able to improve your knowledge and language skills without much effort, thus making it a pleasure.
