Make new friends and improve your English with our online courses
Join our Online courses to make new friends and learn English with the same highly qualified and experienced teachers that makes United World School of English so special. All our Online English Club follows a communicative methodology in a virtual classroom that enables students to experiment with the language, take more risks and improve their English skills confidently. Through our online courses you will socialise with other students from all over the world and learn techniques to develop all four key English skills – listening, reading, writing and speaking (including pronunciation).
English for Life Online
Our English for Life Online courses were designed for learners who would like to improve their English faster. These courses follow a similar structure to the language courses we offer in Bournemouth but with an added range of tools to facilitate online learning. You can choose from 15, 20 or 25 lessons per week.
One to One Online
Our One to One Online courses were created so that students would have the opportunity to get English language tuition in areas that are very specific to their needs. You can choose between private tuition only or a more balanced approach where you can have both group and individual lessons.
To get the most from this course you will need:
A reliable internet connection
A desktop computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone
A web camera on or attached to the device you are using
An integrated microphone in the device you are using or an attached headset.
You will be sent all the details you need to connect to our virtual classroom.
Why learn English online?
You can have the experience of learning English with other students from all over the world from the comfort of your home
We have been delivering live online lessons for more than 5 years. This means our online courses are not a quick solution because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Our online courses have been carefully designed to accommodate the pros and cons of distant learning
You can choose a more flexible approach by joining our UW English club where you can choose the number of lessons you would like to study per week and on which days. If you would like a more intensive approach, however, you can attend our English for Life Online programme
Lessons are planned and delivered by the same teachers that make United World School of English in Bourneouth so special.
When can I start my courses?
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.

However, we do recommend A1 students to start their courses in the months of January, April, July or September.
