Year-round language courses abroad - frequently asked questions

I want to study at the University of Cologne (I'm 19 years old) - where to start preparing for admission?

Most often our clients start studying in Germany with language centers and schools - this is the key factor in preparing for admission. We will help you to contact our partners and choose the best educational institution, collect documents and fill out an application, pass all the entrance examinations, get a student visa. The process of entering is multistage and takes a lot of time, but we are always in touch with you and help in solving any issues.

We are looking for a good school in Cambridge with English language courses, especially interested in the winter holidays (for a duration of 1-2 weeks). In addition to language lessons, it is necessary that the program includes excursions and recreational activities, it is desirable that the camp was attended by guys from Russia or Russian-speaking staff. What are the options for a child of 14 years old?

There are a lot of such programs on our site - only the bulk of them are conducted not in Cambridge , but in other cities and centers. Perhaps you should consider the option of learning English in a teacher's family (note the Home Language International program).

I would like to find a quality English course for adult beginners: I'm 35 years old and English has not been studied before. I would very much like to get to Ireland.

Of course, in Ireland , as in the whole of Great Britain , there are a great number of language schools and courses with programs of varying degrees of complexity - it is not difficult to choose an option for a beginner.

But we draw your attention that getting an Irish visa is quite a complicated and long process, especially for adult students. You must fully pay the entire course until the moment you apply for a visa, as well as clearly argue your desire to learn the language: that is, to indicate weighty personal and career motives, and not just "I want to teach for myself." For example, you can indicate that you plan to work in a foreign or international company, claim to be promoted, want to go abroad for a long course of study (for example, a higher or second higher education). There is also a danger that if you do not have at least basic English, then in visiting language courses in Ireland you may be refused: the visa officer may find that if you have not learned the language before, there is still no special need now. Similar problems can arise with obtaining a general British visa.

In case of refusal, you are likely to be offered to begin to visit language courses in Russia . We recommend that you learn English in more hospitable and easy to visit countries, for example, in Bulgaria or in Malta .

I want to find language courses of sufficient duration to be able to live in London. What schools and courses can you recommend, what is usually the duration of study and its cost in such cases?

For initial acquaintance and a preliminary choice you can address in section of our site, offering language schools in London . For example, we can advise you: London School of English , Hampstead School of English , Frances King London (Kensington district), OISE London , Global London College , St. Petersburg. Georges International , UIC English Central London .

The level of knowledge of French in our country, alas, is zero. Are there any variants of programs lasting from 3 months?

If you have a zero level of French - then courses at universities you can attend only in the summer, the rest of the academic programs are designed for at least an initial or intermediate level of language proficiency. You can find descriptions of several centers that we recommend for your situation: OISE Paris , LSI Montreux , Verbier Language School VLS .
