Blended Learning Programme (BL30)
A blended English learning programme of online lessons by Skype or telephone from your home or office and live face-to-face lessons in school with your personal teacher.

Part 1: Online Preparation Lessons
Five pre-course online lessons of 45 mins each to prepare you for your intensive course in the UK. These can be spread over as many days or weeks as you want though we suggest about 3 or 4 weeks.
Part 2: Intensive Course in UK
Attend an intensive general communication course in the UK with 22.5 hours face-to-face lessons in a mini-group of around 4 – 5 students (max 6). This builds on the pre-course online lessons taken already and allows you to get the most from a single week away from your workplace.
Part 3: Online Follow-up Lessons
Five post-course follow-up lessons of 45 mins each to continue the learning and development of the UK training. These sessions never expire and can be taken as quickly as you like, or used later if you need specific help with a project or task.

Learn English Online
Rick welcomes you to Kingsway English Online Learning"People say learning online is not as good as being face-to-face with an English teacher - and I agree!"

A lot of schools who offer English online courses just give you a lot of computer exercises to do and no teacher time. No wonder you get bored and never finish your course.

Kingsway English Online One-to-One is different!
In our online English training we focus on live face-to-face teacher sessions.

Of course it is necessary to have some 'follow up' work to reinforce the things you have learnt, but we ensure you stay motivated through live teacher input to all the activities.

One-to-One Courses (1115 / 1122 / 1130)
A tailor-made course of one-to-one (individual) lessons, suitable for all levels including beginners. It is most suitable for people with very specific aims and very little time.

There are three options – 15 hour, 22.5 hour or 30 hour courses. Choosing which one depends on your needs. If you want to have free time for leisure activities the 15 hour programme is ideal. If you would like an intensive course but with free time for your office work then the 22.5 hour course is perfect. To make maximum progress then we recommend the 30 hour option.

The content of the lessons is up to you. Your teachers will help you identify your goals and together you can decide on the language areas which will help you achieve them. But you are free to change your mind at any time. After class you can choose to use our well-stocked self-access facilities and study for at least an extra 4 hours per week.

Family English Courses:

For 4 weeks in the summer, usually from the second week of July to the second week of August, we run an exclusive ’boutique’ English Summer School or Summer Camp for young people aged between 13 and 17 years.

We have strict rules – no teenagers are to be seen at Kingsway’s adult school, and no adults are to be seen at the Summer School! So you can both be assured of being independent but only 5 minutes away.

Minimum stay = 1 week / Maximum stay = 4 weeks
18 hours/week of lessons and academic activities
Max class size = 12 (typical class size 8 - 10 students)
