Every day our friendly team of staff are ready to welcome you with a warm hello! Here is how a typical day looks learning English at British Study Centres Manchester:
In the mornings you will have three hours of tuition, from 09.15 to 12.35. You will get a mid-morning break with time to grab a coffee nearby, chat to fellow classmates or ask our staff any questions you might have.
Every week, you will take a progress test as part of your class, to check how your English skills are developing and evaluate which areas of improvement you need to focus on for the week ahead.
If you are taking a 20- or 25-hour course you will also have afternoon classes that finish at 16.15 with a mid-afternoon break, available for Combination Course students taking Business English, IELTS, TOEIC, or TOEFL. You can also choose to take private tuition if you wish.
We also run free academic clubs each week (such as Conversation Club and Grammar Surgery), as well as fun activities like film nights and trips to museums or art galleries, helping you improve your English language communication skills in a relaxed and informal setting. This is a great opportunity to meet other students and build life-long friendships.
Some activities are free and others incur an additional cost. If you were to take part in all activities throughout the week, you can expect to pay £10-£50 per week.
