Why study English at City Lit? Is it just a matter of language?

5 September 2022

Language is everywhere. We exist in it and of course in the UK we exist mainly in English.

It is the main means by which we live, how we build relationships with family, friends, lovers, strangers, work colleagues, customers. It is the means by which we receive the world, from international news to films, from emails, to phone calls from bills to advertising.

 

Learn English

Develop key skills

English, it’s not just a matter of language.

English is like the air we breathe. And yet, like breathing, we can take this skill for granted and forget the need to keep developing and improving.

Our communication skills are the most important ones we have both inside and outside work. At City Lit you can work on these English skills whatever your level, from beginner to advanced, from early literacy skills to complex business writing, whether you have English as your first, second or even third language.

You can do courses with qualifications from ESOL to functional skills to GCSE. You can do courses without exams. You can do courses to help you at work or in your private life. You can develop your speaking and your ability to express yourself in different situations. You can work on your reading and judging of different types of texts, digital and non-digital, fact and fiction. You can learn how to write simple messages with good spelling or essays for university with clearly developed arguments.
