REQUEST DETAILS

Practice your SPEAKING, READING, and WRITING with a native qualified English teacher in everyday “life” situations you will meet whilst you are in the UK. Learn how to properly greet and talk to native English speakers in everyday conversations you will encounter whilst you are in London. Beginners to Advanced Level are accepted in small classes in our Mayfair School only for face to face lessons. 

Since 1993 LITE Regal English School is renowned for providing friendly lessons taught by qualified native English speaking teachers. The General English Course – English for Lite and Experience is ideally suited to those students from the Middle East and Asia. Students from many of these countries have been taught by non-native English teachers who taught boring lessons and non-realistic grammar with little conversation or speaking lessons.  Lite Regal International College School of English – English for Life and Experience is ideal for any student who want to learn how to read write and speak better by lessons concentrating on real life situations.

Course Description

Each level here has its own course book, which follows the Cambridge syllabus. A technique that has proven results with our English language students, enabling them to pass all the exams set by Cambridge. Each course book includes the five mentioned elements, helping students to strengthen their weaknesses, no matter what they are.

Reading: You will be exposed and shown how to deal with many different types of reading materials from newspapers to business letters.

Writing: You will be taught all the different writing styles of not only creative writing but also formal and business forms too, allowing you, therefore to write anything in English you choose.

Speaking: Your speaking ability will improve as you do and we at LITE Regal feel that this is an important part of each English lesson. We make sure that you practice and improve your communicative skills at every opportunity.

Listening: Listening comprehension is a very important element of the General English language course. Improving the listening comprehension will help in both your social and work life. That is why LITE Regal English School pays special attention to it.

Grammar: English grammar is the building block of any language. LITE Regal covers all areas of English grammar at all levels.

Further Information

All students are tested either before they start their General English course via our Online English Test or on the first day of their study. This is to make sure the student is placed at the right English language level.

The Online English Test takes 1 hour to complete. When you start your General English course, the teacher will check your level in the first week to make sure you are at the right English level.

We have a full range of ages in each General English class and anyone aged 17+ is welcome. Each class has a good mix of nationalities to encourage a lively exchange of cultures and experiences. The class size is very small to make sure you learn and have the full attention of the English teacher. Each class has 1-3 Students. Even if you do find that there are people from your country in your class, you will not be allowed by the teacher to speak in your language during the English lesson.

The General English course is divided into terms of 12 weeks for each for the levels. Students generally move up a level after 12 weeks in the class. 

Each term the teacher will guide you through one completed textbook. At the end of the term, you will be tested to see if you can move up to the next level.

At the end of the term, you will take an General English level-up test to see if you are ready for the next level. Once you have passed the General English level up test, you will automatically be moved in to the next class. If you are ready to move before the end of the term, your teacher can recommend that you move up to the next level immediately but you will still need to take the General English level-up test.

If at the end of the term you do not pass the General English level-up test, you will have to  stay at the same level, but you will not repeat the same text book or course material.

The teachers at LITE Regal English School are all TEFL / CELTA or equivalent qualified and provide lively, exciting lessons to their students. We want your learning experience to be fun and useful so our English teachers are chosen for their ability to use a communicative method in the classroom. Please look at our Staff Page to see some of out teaching staff.

Your teacher will meet with you to discuss your progress on the course each term: in the middle of the term to discuss your progress. This helps you to tell your teacher what you are finding difficult and they can give you advice about how to solve these problems.

In the middle of the term you will be given a progress test, which will show you and your teacher what you have learned. Your teacher can also give you advice about how to improve your learning techniques.

All of our General English students are encouraged to take formal examinations once they have reached the First Certificate (FCE) level. We recommend that students take the University of Cambridge ESOL exams. These are held throughout the year and you can book the exam at LITE Regal. The exams can be taken in London or Cambridge depending upon which English School of LITE Regal you are studying at.

To help students prepare for the examinations we have special examination preparation courses.
