Some Factors That You Should Look At While Choosing English Language School:

With the help of an agent or by your own efforts, if you have a shortlist of all the schools where you can go for an English course in Manchester, how do you finalise the best one.

There are several factors to consider before deciding the best school for you. Some of the important factors are:

  • Check the school website. You can get a good feel of the professionalism of the school through the look and feel of the website. Read through to know more about the school and the courses they offer.
  • A recognised body accredits a good school. Accreditation confirms that the school is regularly being inspected for the quality of teachers, students care, their administration and management etc. Some of the good accreditation bodies are Quality English, The English Network, The British Council and IALC.
  • Check the class size. More the number of students per class less would be the personalised attention. Go for schools that take only limited number of students per class.
  • The school should allow you to go up or down to the next level based on your ability to understand and grasp the subject. This is often a need for students, who start to learn a new language.
  • Find out their grading, exam and homework schedule. Decide if you will be able to match up the schedule depending on your time availability.
  • Find the total price of the course including course books, exams, accommodation etc.
  • If you need accommodation, check if the school will provide accommodation or will you have to look for it yourself.
  • Check the quality of teaching staff and their qualifications.
  • Check the facilities of the school like library, computer room, cafeteria, TV room etc. All these make the studying process so much easier and enjoyable.
  • Find the learning methodology adopted for the course and if it is as per your liking.

Once you have finalised the school and course, get yourself enrolled. Now, all you have to do is study hard and excel.
