English Language Courses

UK Work Placement are pleased to offer high quality English language courses to our trainees prior to their work placement start. Classes take place at our office premises. We completely understand that a short course of upto 3 weeks will not make any learner an expert, but our course aims to make learners more confident in English and in their surroundings.

Our classes cater for learners at every level, from basic to advanced, and usually follow the Common European Famework for Languages (CEFR) levels which are:

  • A1 – beginner
  • A2 – Elementary
  • B1 – Pre-Intermediate
  • B2 – Intermediate
  • B2+ – Upper-Intermediate
  • C1/C2 – Advanced

Our language course has its formal elements, which incorporate: speech, pronunciation, listening, reading, writing, grammar and vocabulary. An array of resources are used during classes and specific elements which trainees would like to work can be incorporated.

But a classroom does not have to be enclosed in four walls… Our teachers make every effort to help students feel comfortable in their surroundings. We believe that if during the first few weeks of their stay, if trainees are given the tools, they will be more comfortable and less daunted by life in the UK. To this end, we encourage our teachers to show trainees around Preston, show them the facilities and amenities, places to eat, places to shop, currency exchange, communication options, transport options, and any other points of interest trainees may have. Teachers will have students prepare tasks which encourage trainees to talk to the general public in the streets of Preston. This enables trainees to get used to hearing English spoken to them by different people and with different accents.

Every student who completes a language course with us will receive a certificate of completion.

Each of our partners has different requirements, so please contact us to discuss yours.
