Courses

Our teachers are our greatest strength. They are supportive, professional and focused on helping you achieve your personal goals.

Teaching Style:
The St Giles approach to teaching and learning a language is ‘Learner Centred’. This means that we focus on the needs, interests and aims of our students, and plan the content of the course on the basis of this information. Our learners are encouraged to participate actively in the process of learning and acquiring the new language, and we aim to promote learner independence. All our teachers plan fast-paced interactive lessons so that students are motivated to learn and our courses are interesting, relevant and enjoyable.

Qualifications:
All our teachers are qualified, native level English speakers, and many have years of experience. We also have a high ratio of Diploma and Masters qualified teachers at our schools.

Teacher Development Programme:
St Giles is very proud of our teacher development programme. All our centres have a teacher development programme helping our teachers to continually improve their skills. We also encourage them to take further qualifications and all teachers are regularly observed and appraised.

Observations:
As part of our Teacher Development effort, we employ a group-wide scheme of graded teacher observations, whereby teachers can learn from the practice of others and receive dedicated feedback on their performance and progress. This process helps to maintain consistent teaching standards at all our centres and upholds St Giles’ reputation for high quality teaching as evidenced by our inspection reports.

St Giles has a special needs coordinator at both our Central London and Highgate schools and we keep our class sizes to 12 to enable appropriate student support. St Giles has a very active social programme to support English language learning with trips organized weekly to London’s historic and social venues.

We run creative writing classes, trips to Stonehenge, Brighton, Scotland and London film studios and much more. Every Monday night is New Student’s night where you can meet and make friends as you start your course. We also support classroom learning with online English language tips and an active school blog.

About the Student residence:

Plenty of parkland, spacious rooms, a basketball hoop and a BBQ area - these are some of the perks of moving out of Zone 1 and into Tufnell House in Kentish Town. This awesome student digs has had a recent trendy transformation, and being only 5 minutes walk from the tube means you still have all of London at your fingertips. North London is your immediate playground though - hilly, leafy, full of character, music and vitality. A place many residents wouldn’t dream of leaving, ever.

Homestay

This popular accommodation option is the ideal choice if you want to practise your English outside the classroom and learn about British culture and way of life first hand. Homestay at London Central offers:  Our lowest price accommodation option  Carefully selected and monitored hosts  Choice of half board or breakfast only  Choice of single or shared rooms (for students travelling together)  All bed linen and towels provided  Superior homestay option available Due to our central London location, homestays are located on average 45-60 minutes from the centre by public transport. London is a big city, and is divided into 6 "Zones". Zone 1 is closest to the centre, and Zone 6 is furthest from the centre. St Giles London Central is in Zone 1. It is very unusual to find homestay accommodation in Zone 1, and therefore the majority of our homestays are in Zones 3-5. If you are studying English at London Central, you can live in Zone 1 if you choose one of our student residence or hotel options. Superior homestays offer large, well-furnished bedrooms with internet access, as well as the option to book a private bathroom. During busy periods, we occasionally use homestays that are carefully selected by the agency, Hosts International. Hosts International are a British Council approved homestay provider.
