Deciding on a language school



Once you've decide to go to language school, how do you decide which one to attend? The choice can depend on a number of factors, which you must weigh carefully against each other.

  Here are some guidelines to follow when you decide on a language school:
  • Find out which schools your organization recommends or requires.
  • Weigh the cost of each school.
  • Find out about the instructional approach used in each school and see which one fits your preferences.
  • Look at the daily timetable of each school and see if it fits your family's needs.
  • Find out what the teacher-student ratio is.
  • Investigate what kinds of resources are available at the school: language labs, media resources, organized activities or outings.
