New for 2013

As we reach the start of 2013, here at Excel English we are making some changes to the programmes we offer, to improve them even more for our students!

Smaller classes

In keeping with our quality image and our desire to make sure students learn as much as possible, we have reduced our General English class size to 12 students maximum.  The maximum class size for Exam Preparation programmes will be 8 students.

More Intensive general English programmes

As we have noticed a trend for students to enrol for shorter courses but wanting to do as much as possible in the time they are at the school, all our Super Intensive courses will now be 22.5 hours per week, in line with our exam preparation courses.

Dedicated exam preparation programmes

We will now be offering the Cambridge exam preparation programmes (FCE & CAE) over 6 weeks and IELTS and PTE (Pearson Test of English) over 4 weeks.  These courses will be dedicated exam preparation so you will need to take an online test at the time of enrolment, to make sure you are at the right level to begin your chosen course.  If you are not, we will suggest you either do more preparation in your own country or enrol with us for some weeks of general English.  The exam preparation fee includes the cost of the exam textbooks and the exam itself.

Our online learning platform

Our Excel English Online learning platform will be fully operational in 2013, for all students taking one of our adult programmes.  You will have access to it as soon as you have enrolled and paid for your course, so you can start practising your English before you arrive in London.  During your stay with us you will use the system for practice outside lessons, for your tutorials and also to look up school information. And you will also have access to the learning platform for 3 months after you leave the school.  All this is at no extra cost.

New programmes: Football Fanatics Experience & Prime Experience

On our new Football Fanatics Experience, participants will have guided tours of famous stadiums in London, and for an additional fee can also have a trip to Manchester to visit Manchester United and the National Football Museum (price available on request).

The Prime Experience is for people in the prime of life aged 45 years plus.  You will either have our specially written British Culture lessons where you practise your English while finding out about our culture past and present, or you will have general English classes if your level is lower than B1.  The maximum class size for this programme is 8 participants.  Special tours designed to appeal to more mature participants and introduce you to parts of London you are unlikely to have visited before are included in the programme.  We will also be including a special afternoon tea, a fish and chip supper, visits to 2 famous pubs, and 2 weekend trips outside London (in the 2 week programme).

2012 has been an amazing year for London, which we have enjoyed sharing with our students.  But we think 2013 will be even better, and our new programmes are the perfect way to experience it with us.  So visit our course information pages to find the perfect programme for you, and we will see you in London soon!
