How to Study English 7 Tips and Ideas

1. Learn slowly

You are like a new born baby. You will learn a new language slowly and through careful steps. So, adopt the steps a baby would and you’ll develop in no time. First learn to listen and then learn to talk and then learn to read and write.

2. Listen everyday

Make sure that you are always listening to English. Listen to the radio. Watch English movies and regular TV. Enjoy a day out at the cinema and watch English movies and make use of any English audio you find online. There will be loads and it doesn’t cost you a thing!

3. Make some friends

Not only can you practice your English whilst socializing, but choose the right friends and you can even practice your English language skills together. Make up some silly conversations to have together and practice your speaking skills. You could even use some text books to guide you and for sample conversations.

4. Read, read and read some more

You want to be reading as much English as possible. Not only to help your reading skills but in order to expand your vocabulary too. A great place to start is children’s books and stories and these can be picked up for next to nothing from charity shops all over London. Read many of the UK’s free newspapers, the backs of packets whilst shopping, adverts on the Tube and trains. When you think about, there is English you can read everywhere. So make sure you do every single day.

5.  Start a vocab book

It’s great that you’re learning all these new words but you will of course forget some. So it’s a great idea to start writing down new words you discover in a notebook for yourself. You may like to order it in alphabetical order, include the word’s definition and perhaps write a few examples of how to use the word. This technique, whilst it may seem time consuming, is a really fantastic way to quickly improve your language skills. And eventually, you will have a huge, useful resource that you didn’t have to pay a penny for!

6. Start a diary

It would be really useful to start writing a personal diary in English. If you’ve never kept a diary before, keep it simple to start with. Just write a few sentences about how you feel, how the weather is and what you got up to that day. Before you know it, you’ll be writing loads and loads and you can even contact us to share your story on this blog.

7. Visit England

Come to England and learn English more quickly. You’ll have so much fun and experience something that will be with you forever. There’s nothing like being able to hear natives speak and you’d really be able to fully appreciate the English language. Check out our English schools in England section now. You may also find out pages on the IELTS examination useful.

Free Stuff to do in London

Free Food in London - one of our tips for free stuff to do in LondonYou may be tired of the old cliché that students are broke but we certainly aren’t! We know how good it feels to get a good bargain and even better when you can enjoy a fantastic day out for free. It seems that everyday we read more and more about how expensive it is to live in London and while it can be expensive, we’ve rounded up some fantastic was you can enjoy our beautiful city for absolutely nothing!

Visit the Sites

London has within it some of the most-loved and well known landmarks. You can go to visit places like Trafalgar Square, Soho, Big Ben and Nelson’s Common and take many photos with your friends.

National Museums and Galleries

Did you know that in 2001 all National Museums and Galleries in London were made free?  Yes that’s right, you can go to magical places like the British Museum at look at its many exhibits, have fun with interactive displays at the Science Museum, or enjoy the works of some of the world’s most famous artists at the Tate Modern, all completely free of charge. Even the National Maritime Museum at Greenwich, the home of time, is free. This is only a tiny selection of the many National Museums and Galleries that you can visit for free.

Enjoy London’s Famous Parks

London has so many wonderful parks and open spaces which you can use to relax and enjoy the sunshine. The views of the BT Tower from Richmond park, from Alexandra Palace or from the Royal Observatory in Greenwich Park are simply breathtaking and possibly the best in London.

Some of London’s more popular parks get very busy and offer free programmes. For example, this year you could meet the England rugby squad at Regent’s Park or go for a guided walk through any of London’s Royal Parks. This can be easily booked and are totally free.

London Markets

Perhaps a nature-based guided tour of the Royal Parks isn’t for you. Instead, you could visit one of London’s many famous outdoor markets. There are various markets scattered all over London and each really does give you a taste of the unique cultures and atmospheres to be found in different areas in London. London’s Spitalfields and Chrisp Street markets hold regular free events that cover everything from seasonal festivals to displays of local artists’ works. And perhaps the famous of all London’s markets is Camden Market which really has to be seen to be believed. Sundays are when it is busiest, when you will find a whole host of weird and wonderful smells, tastes, fashions and music. Camden Market is so big that you probably won’t be able to explore it all in one day. You can of course look around the market for free and even haggle with some market traders to get some great discounts. But the name of this guide is free – so, with a bit of charm and a nice, big smile you may be able to blag some free food at around 6pm, the market’s closing time. Speak (nicely!) to some of the people selling food and more often than not they’re happier to give it away then to throw it away. In fact, Camden is such a bustling place we recommend you dedicate a good few weekends to really take it all in. In keeping with its multi-cultural feel, Camden is also home to many fantastic English language schools.

More Free Food!

As well as Camden Market there are a number of places you can get food for free in London. Sounds unbelievable I know, but read on.  Followers of Hare Krishna, a religion, can often be found all around London. They are well known for providing very high quality vegan lunches outside many of London’s University campuses. All they ask for in return is a small donation to their course, the amount of course being entirely up to you. However, you may not enjoy lining up for free food with other students, so how does free food from some of London’s most famous landmarks sound? Well, you can even get free food from Harrods! The Harrods Food Hall regularly has free samplings as well as promotional launches of some of its finest ranges. You’ll even be able to find a nice drop of wine to wash it all down with. Head to any Majestic Win Warehouse in London as they all have free tasting sessions available.

Free Nights out

Comedy nights are always great fun and they are hugely popular. Despite this, entry prices are often free – promoters instead choosing to draw people to the bar with free admission. Free comedy nights are available at venues all over London. Head to the Grafton Arms on Grafton Way for the Warren Street Comedy Therapy, or the Red Lion in Soho for Scabby Tabby, every Wednesday. If you need some comedy to put you in the mood for Mondays – which we all hate – then you should head for Off the Cuff at the Rosemary Branch, Islington, for some truly side-splitting comedy from a highly recommended all-female group of comediennes.

Free TV and Radio Show Recordings

The recordings of many television and radio shows take place in front of live TV audiences. The BBC in particular champions the free entry to such recordings and you can get tickets for shows such as The News Quiz and Never Mind the Buzzcocks. Tickets are allocated by ballot, which are free to enter, at the BBC website.

Movie Premieres

Yes that’s right, you can mingle with the world’s glitzy high flyers…well, at least from behind a barrier you can! All of London’s film premiers held in Leicester Square are completely free to attend and you’ll be able to see your favourite stars walking along the red carpet.

Free Sporting Events

Amateur spot is huge across the capital and on any Sunday there is a huge choice of free and fun sporting events to go and watch. The best way to find out about these events is through your local paper. Dog Racing – The Dogs – is another great night out. Entry to places like Walthamstow and Crayford tracks is free and even if you decide to only spend bet a total of £5 over several races, you will still have a really great time. The Dogs is a very entertaining free night out. Feel like taking part in a free sporting activity yourself? Then get your skates on – literally! There are several group skates around London which are fantastic ways to meet new people and give you a unique view of our wonderful city. Groups include Friday Night Skate and Sunday Rollerstroll. Anyone is welcome to go along and enjoy the fun.

UK University 2009 Guardian Rankings

There are many different ways that the rank of UK universities in 2009 has been calculated. We’ve already included one – the 2009 UK Good University Guide – and for balance, we thought we’d include the UK University Ranking 2009 from The Guardian.

The UK University Ranking 2009 rates 46 subject areas at 149 universities using the following criteria:

  • Teaching quality, as rated by final-year students in the National Student Survey (NSS)
  • Feedback (assessment), as rated by final-year students in the NSS
  • Spending per student
  • Staff/student ratio
  • Job prospects
  • Value added – comparing students’ individual degree results with their entry qualifications
  • Entry qualifications (UCAS tariff score)

It is really important to note that this ranking of universities guide actually takes account of student feedback, specifically the satisfaction of students, in key areas such as teaching. This guide is here to help students and in particular undergraduates. Therefore, universities guide aims to rank universities based on teaching and not research ratings.

So take a look at the rankings and contact us if you have any questions.

Now that you’ve seen the rankings you can begin planning to apply to University. Part of your student life will involve part-time work. Why not get a head-start on everyone else and take your pick of the best student jobs going. You can find a range of advice and tools for you in our student jobs section, where there is also a link to our job listings.

Top Tips for Studying Foreign Languages

Top tips for studying foriegn languages from UK Student News and Events

Learning a second language is a great idea and while it may not be easy, you will certainly find it very rewarding. It will definitely be a challenge so we’ve put together the following tips to help anyone studying foreign languages. We hope you’ll find them useful and they should help you to study effectively, get rid of your nerves as well as give some pointers on how to achieve success in your foreign language classes.

A little everyday goes a long, long way. Learning a foreign language is totally different from studying a subject. You can’t leave all the work to the last minute and hope to “cram” just before exams. Studying foreign languages is a cumulative process and if you want to get the most out of your course you should study for a couple of hours every day.

Study smartly. Split your day’s study time up into smaller chunks, no more than 30 minutes in length and spread them out through the day. Not only will you get more done this way than if you spent 2 hours solid studying, but by focusing on different topics throughout the day you will be able to cover a lot of material. This way, you’re practicing all the elements of the foreign language, every day.

Go to class. Do remember why you’re studying a foreign language in the first place – for the experience and to achieve something. Even if you haven’t finished your assignment, still go as you will learn so much more if you go! Classes provide the ideal opportunity to practice your foreign language skills with your teacher – more often than not a native speaker – so you really should make the most of the opportunity.

Make friends to help you whilst studying a foreign language.Talk to other people. Introduce yourself, make friends and you’ll soon have loads of people who you can practice with. Not only can you study together, but we all know how good it feels to be amongst friends and a happy environment means you will progress much further while studying a foreign language. It’s also a good to idea to get to know your teacher. Why not have a coffee with them after class and you can discuss your goals and worries too.

Know your grammar. Grammar is the most important part of any language and if you want to progress whilst studying a foreign language you will have to learn it. Sorry, but that does mean some boring study sessions, but once you’ve got the basics you’ll be flying along in no time.

Do your revision. Tests are very important so make sure you prepare for them. The best way to prepare for your language tests is to practice past exam papers and do them under timed conditions too. This way you will be really comfortable with the format of the paper, how the questions are asked and how long to spend on each question. Even though exams are there to test your progress, you should remember that these exam techniques can help you relax and ultimately do better.

Follow our tips for studying a foreign language and be happy!Be happy! Make sure you have a good attitude and that you do all you can to enjoy your studies. Hopefully you’re already motivated enough to study a foreign language once you are on a course, so keep your goals in mind so you can stay positive throughout your foreign language course. Remember it’s ok to make mistakes – that’s how we all learn.

Ask for help. Never be afraid to ask for any help from your teacher or fellow students. If you followed our advice and quickly introduced yourself to people you should have no problem in getting a study group together. Your fellow students will support you and group study is a great way to practice a foreign language.

Be sure to come back soon as we’ll be bringing you a guide to reading, writing, speaking and listening next. You could also register to stay up-to-date with UK Student News and Events.

IELTS Examination Guide

IELTS stands for International English Language Testing System. The IELTS English test is an internationally-recognised system for testing English language. It is designed to measure ability to communicate in English across all the four language skills – listening, reading, writing and speaking – for people who intend to study or work where English is the language of communication.

If you aim to study at university level in the UK, you will be required to take an IELTS English test and get the required score. The universities in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and Ireland also recognise the IELTS examination and it also recognised by the immigration authorities in the UK, under such as the new points based immigration system.

UK Universities React to Recent Criticism

Responding to reports published by the Quality Assuarance Agency, Diana Warwick, Chief Executive of Universities UK, said: “The quality of UK honours degrees is the envy of the world. QAA’s own audit is the way we assure ourselves of that. These regular reports from the QAA are a useful tool, and enable the sector to reflect on good practice and consider their own systems. This regular feedback is one of the strengths of the UK quality assurance system.

“We note in particular comments about the current degree classification system. The sector is already debating the way we classify these degrees.

“The QAA recognises that the support institutions give their international students is a strength.  Institutions are well aware of the issue of the sustainability of international student numbers, particularly in an increasingly competitive environment. As the report notes, they keep support services under review to enhance the experience of international students.

“Universities are aware some international students may have specific needs in terms of language and understanding different styles of learning. Much is already being done to support them and ensure they succeed in their studies to the standard expected.

“Overall, the reports identify a wealth of good practice and that institutions’ external examining arrangements were working satisfactorily. The robust quality assurance system we have in place will ensure that this continues to be the case.

UK Language Schools Attract an Impressive Mix of Nationalities

A breakdown of respondents in a survey investigating nationalities of students at UK language schoolsA recent survey was carried out in May 2008 which wanted to investigate the current mix of nationalities at UK language schools. Several aspects of UK language schools were looked at, from student nationality and reasons for studying, to the standard of schools and how students enrolled on their course. It was found that their is a very healthy mix of nationalities at UK language schools, with no one nationality dominating, providing an ideal environment for learning English as a foreign language. In fact, many students will choose a UK language school that has a small number of students from their own country.

Nationality Mix at UK Language Schools

The study found that students at UK language schools represented a total of 32 different nationalities. This number has dropped compared to 2007, when a total of 40 nationalities were represented. However, the mix of nationalities has continued to remain diverse, with no one nationality accounting for more than 9%.

A more significant finding was a significant fall in students from the Middle East. In fact, in 2007 Libya was the 4th most popular nationality, with 6.5% of the student population. Middle Eastern students together accounted for 15% of all students in 2007, but only 2% this year. We wouldn’t like to make any suggestions as to why, but perhaps the current political climate has had an effect.

A breakdown showing the top nationalities of students at UK language schools

This year, students from Thailand replaced Chinese students as the joint-top nationality with 9% of the total population. Thai students shared top-spot with students from Korea. 2008 saw a significant drop in the numbers of Chinese students, down from 7% in 2007 to just 1% in 2008.

Types of Student at UK Language Schools

Having looked at what nationalities are represented at UK language schools, we now turn our attention to their reasons for studying in the first place. Specifically, what types of student are they and how long are they studying for?

Over 37% of students who took part in the survey described themselves as being full time students. However, this is down considerably from the 53% who described themselves as students in 2007. The rest of the respondents were described as professionals – such as doctors and lawyers for example – at 19% and business people at 9%. Despite the drop in numbers of full time students, the average length of study at UK language schools actually increased from 15.9 weeks in 2007 to 23 weeks in 2008. The majority of students – 38% – are studying for between 20 and 39 weeks and a total of 14% of students are studying for 40 weeks or more.

An interesting finding of the study was that the numbers of students who were already using English at either work or higher education are equal, at 38% showing that many people have chosen to study at UK language schools to further their professional or educational development. Considering that the length of study has increased significantly, it is surprising to note that only 20% of respondents were studying for the purposes of going on to further education. 43% of students were studying English in order to better their current or future employment opportunities.

How have Students Chosen their English Language Schools?

A breakdown showing if UK students knew where they wanted to study

While the use of education agents was down this year against 2007 a significant number of students still found agents a useful and reassuring method for finding a UK language school. This year 36% of students said they found their language school through an agent as opposed to 53.5% in 2007. Clearly, students appear to be carrying out their own research on UK language schools before approaching an agent to make the booking for them. 50% of students booked their place through an agent this year, down slightly from 60% in 2007. Most interestingly, there has been significant growth in the recommendation of UK language schools by friends and family as a means of finding a school, up from 26% in 2007 to 36% this year.

What do Students Think of UK Language Schools?

Despite a wide range of class sizes from 4 to 16 students, an average of 10.6, 20% of respondents expressed their opinion that class sizes were too large. And even more surprisingly, despite the rich diversity of nationalities at UK language schools, 9% of students polled complained that there were too many students from their own country at their school. Students from Turkey, Korea, Japan, Columbia and Thailand were the most likely to pick up on this issue.

What Do International Students in the UK Study and Where?

What do International Students Study in the UK and Where do they come from?We’ve been crunching some numbers over the past few days and have compiled your one-stop resource for details on international students in the UK. The British Government has been on a major drive recently to recruit international students. Demand for further education in the UK is strong and there is significant growth in student numbers from China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, India, Nigeria and the USA. In fact, at most UK universities you can expect the student body to be made up of students from over 100 countries. In this sense the UK university system is truly global and with currently one in ten of the student population coming from overseas, we thought it was time to look at exactly where and what they are studying.

We’ll come to the data in just a moment, but first, where have we got the numbers from? The data is based on international students joining their first UK degree course. To be able to provide useful insight, we’ve split the data into EU and Worldwide data. The data therefore also includes students who have taken part in UK exchange schemes, such as ERASMUS, TEMPUS and LINGUA. All the different types of further education courses have been included in the data collection: foundation, undergraduate and postgraduate degrees and vocational courses, including English courses.

The data that we will cover in this article covers 114 UK universities and includes the countries that international students come from, what subjects they study and also where they study. We’ve also been able to calculate the percentage of the student population at each university which comes from overseas.
