Welcome to


Much more than a General English course!

Our English for Life courses are designed to improve the language skills you need to communicate in all areas of your life: academic, professional, or just for fun. These courses are designed to the competency of your English at progressive levels by developing the skills of reading, writing, listening and speaking without compromising on grammatical accuracy and vocabulary range.

We have a continuous assessment programme where you will be able to track how well you are progressing on a weekly basis and also be able to identify your weaknesses and develop self-study techniques with the help of your teacher.

So what are you waiting for? Come and join the United family!

When can I start my courses?

Good news is you can start your course any Monday as long as it is not a Bank Holiday here in England. If there is a Bank Holiday* on your first week, you will then start your course on a Tuesday. Our continuous assessment policy allows us to offer you a class that challenges your current English language proficiency 44 weeks a year. However, we do recommend A1 students to start their courses in the months of January, April, July or September.

* Bank Holidays 2020 10th April (Good Friday), 13th April (Easter Monday), 8th May (Early Many bank holiday), 25th May (Spring bank holiday), 31st August (Summer bank holiday).

The school will be closed for the Christmas holidays from 23.12.2020  to 04.01.2021
