For nearly fifty years Saint George International (SGI) has built up a reputation for excellence in delivering foreign language courses to individuals and to corporate teams from large international companies.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT
The school now offers a wide variety of language courses from its training centre in London, from its network of teachers across the UK and from its partner schools abroad. SGI today revealed that the secret of its success was listening to its students needs and matching their passion for learning.
The school refers to its approach to teaching foreign languages as “The SGI Way”. At the centre of this are five values which inform every language course that is offered. These are:
1. A commitment to continue to improve its language course provision
2. The adoption of a holistic approach to language learning which is not confined solely to the classroom
3. An undertaking to systematically review all work that a student has learnt
4. To connect with each student and ensure they can participate fully
5. To be flexible and negotiate learning aims with each individual
The quality of the results of this approach can be seen in the school’s formal accreditation and in student feedback as they finish their course of study. SGI's foreign language department has been accredited as a Buying Solutions supplier for the provision of language skills training courses to the UK Public Sector. SGI is also accredited by EAQUALS for its foreign language course provision and by the British Council for its English Language provision.
Recent student testimonials have highlighted how the experience of learning with SGI has left a lasting impression. Sara de Maio from Geneva recently praised the school’s approach to teaching language through a focus on cultural themes. This approach broadened her study beyond the textbook and really helped her to improve her fluency. Sara commented that the “interesting lesson topics” and “lots of discussions” kept her stimulated and allowed her to explore fascinating new areas such as “architecture and cinema”. She summarises her learning experience by saying that she “always had the feeling that [she] was having fun”.
Walida from Algeria referred to her study time as “an enriching experience” during which she learned about her classmates through shared discussions and was given the opportunity to learn about British society whilst improving her English. “The classes went beyond the classical English course,” she wrote. “I learned about British culture, politics, history and royalty.” Katya Dilchovska from Bulgaria concurred that “the teachers and the atmosphere help you learn while having a lovely time and enjoying every minute of your studying.”
The secret of the success of SGI is relatively simple but it has taken nearly fifty years to fine tune its approach to meet the needs of language students. Students studying Italian at St Georges UK or any of the other languages on offer will find a school that matches their love of the language and their passion to learn. Their website has all the information you’ll need, so for example if you are interested in studying Spanish, just look at the list of courses of Spanish at St Georges.co.uk.
