Wimbledon School of English ex-student in the Financial Times

Published on February 18th 2021

Recently we reached out to our Wimbledon School of English alumni to participate in a Financial Times article about the value of language schools to the UK's economy. Today, the article has been published and it features one of our former students, Koray from Turkey.

Koray studied at Wimbledon School of English for a year back in the 90's and then went on to get his professional qualifications in the UK while also playing football in an amateur league. While based in Istanbul, he bought a UK shipping company and regularly visits London still. Koray says in the article “Though I can use my English to talk to Canadian and US firms, with the UK it’s a different connection”

The article tells us how the stuggles the language school industry faces because of the covid-19 pandemic this past year, where it used to generate upwards of £1.4 billion to the UK economy.
