Intensive Language Learning Courses for Adults at Soho, London

In one of the trendiest locations in the London area, the Soho, Skola has set up a state of the art teaching centre which hosts adult English language courses.

    LONDON, ENGLAND, January 31, 2010 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Located just a stone's throw from tourist-friendly landmarks such as Oxford Street, Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square, the school grounds are very popular with locals and foreigners alike. The Soho institution is also comfortably close to a number of popular dining, shopping and other social venues. Language courses given at the Soho institute, unlike its summer school UK counterparts, are focused on offering flexible language solutions for adults. Skola caters to busy individuals that want to access new language skills to get ready for the increasing demands of the global market. The English language is the most popular language in the world (and the second most spoken after Mandarin) and is currently the pidgin standard for business and communications.

Skola works with some of the most prestigious summer schools England has to offer in order to provide the best experience for young and adult learners. The Soho language courses for adults emphasise offering knowledge that is immediately useful, and offer specialty lessons that prepare students for the language demands of today's business world. Students go through 21 hours of teaching per week, composed of 6 hours of individual tutoring as well as 15 hours in group classes. The group classes focus on general English skills - here the student learns about the various skills related to language learning (such as speaking and pronunciation, listening, reading and writing) and how to integrate them. During the individual classes, the students enjoy personalised tutorials that deal with particular areas of technical or professional English related to a particular field of her interest.
