Language Schools - Study English in the UK!
Studying English in the home of the English language is a dream for many students. The UK offers language schools to suit all tastes and language abilities. Whether you are a beginner or an advanced learner, want to study English specific to your profession or want to spend time in a dynamic city or a relaxing country environment, the UK has a language school for you.
English language schools are under the supervision of several teaching quality control groups. The most famous one is called the English in Britain Accreditation Scheme which is run by the Association of Recognized English Language Services (ARELS) and the British Association of State English Language Teaching (BASELT). Schools need to be examined regularly and their services are evaluated according to strict standards. All UKEAS recommended language schools are qualified schools so you can rest assured as to their quality and your professional counselor can help you in choosing a school that best fits your needs.
