COURSES
Teaching methodology The St Giles teaching approach focuses on the needs and aims of students. Students are individually assessed when they arrive to make sure they are in the best class for their needs.

Learners are encouraged to participate actively in class. Teachers deliver fast-paced, interactive lessons so that students are motivated to learn and courses are interesting, relevant and enjoyable.

Lesson content is planned around the interests and needs of students. Regular one-to-one sessions with teachers allow students to continually influence the content of the programme.

St. Giles teaches students a rounded set of skills. We build confidence in speaking, listening, reading and writing English. Class sizes are small, a maximum of 12, to give you more personal attention. Every 2 weeks you have a progress check with your teacher and every eight weeks you are assessed to make sure you are progressing as far and as fast as you can.

All teachers are qualified, native level English speakers, and many have years of experience. St Giles builds on the experience of their teachers to develop consistently high teaching standards. Student feedback is very important to St Giles. In 2014, most students rated teaching at St Giles as exceeding their expectations. This rating has consistently increased over the past 3 years. In 2014, both the friendliness of teachers and quality of teaching were graded, on
average, as between “very good” and “excellent”.

There is an online learning zone, with a range of resources to use while you are with us or before you start your course to get prepared. Outside classes are regular organised activities and trips to practice your English in the real world. With at least 5 activities a week, weekdays and weekends, there’s plenty of choice. We have a cinema night, bowling, dance lessons, book club, theatre evenings, trips to London, Paris, Amsterdam and many more European
sightseeing highlights.
