At Wimbledon School of English, we believe that effective communication is the key to language learning, as well as the goal. Therefore, on all our courses, you will be encouraged to maximise your communicative ability through pair, group and class work. As a serious academic school, we expect students to strengthen their learning with up to 2 hours of homework each evening, and we also monitor students’ progress, through weekly progress assessments, monthly tutorials, level tests and entry and exit texts.

Our English language courses allow you to improve all areas of your English language: grammar, vocabulary, speaking, listening, pronunciation, reading and writing. All our courses also integrate 21st Century Skills into their curriculum.


Our Options courses for 2024 are:

21st Century Skills

Learning English isn’t just about learning a language. At WSE, we don’t just teach English. We prepare our students for life in an international world. The intercultural skills that our students need to thrive and succeed go beyond language. Several skills have been identified as crucial to succeeding in academic study, business and life, and we incorporate these into every part of our programmes.


But perhaps the most important aspect of studying at WSE is that you will meet people from all over the world, with different lives, different families, different customs and traditions. You will explore not only UK culture, but cultures around the world. You will live, work and play together, in class, in our homestays and student houses, and on our busy social activity programme. There is no better teacher than experience and the experience you gain at WSE will give you the tools you need to manage in an international environment.


Academic Skills

You will develop these skills during your course through various activities, such as:



We think our students’ well-being is top priority so we provide:


Learner Training

As a student, you will be trained in how to increase your productivity and effectiveness as a learner, through:


Soft Skills

Additionally, each course includes elements of specific soft skills training, such as:
