English language (EFL, ESOL)

London Waterloo Academy has a long history of welcoming students from around the globe and we are proud to play an important part in this tradition.

Introduction:
Learning a language is like unlocking a previously unchartered territory on the world map, where you get to know more about the culture of a particular ‘sphere’ (a bundle of countries united by one single culture) and savour a new way of thinking. With the rise of Anglo-American culture, I’m sure you’ve all been, at some point, been exposed to unhealthy doses of British and American entertainment. In many countries, however, English language films and TV shows are dubbed.

Have you ever wondered if How I met your mother could get even funnier with all its memorable puns and splendid jokes? Have you been enticed by Doctor Who and wondered what it would take to sound like the posh British characters in the series? Has a friend sent you an English meme on Instagram before and you get frustrated because somehow you are the only one who doesn’t get it?

What’s more, you finally pick up an ‘English for Dummies’ from the local bookshop. And what await are a small series of so-called ‘grammar and spelling rules’ and heaps of exceptions. Annoying, eh? How do you distinguish, phonetically: ‘thorough’, ‘through’, ‘though’, ‘thou’, and ‘tough’? Facepalm.

No worries – we’re here to help. The Academy has taught English as a foreign language for so many years. We are language experts who know exactly what works and what doesn’t.

We are different. We don’t treat learners with kid gloves (another useful expression!). The vast majority of our staff and students are multilingual, and know exactly the immense difficulties that learners routinely face when learning English.

Fresh Teaching Method (shh…it’s a secret): Textual Analysis

Instead of teaching boring grammar rules and repeating the ‘phrasal verbs’ your primary school English teacher has endlessly bombarded you, we shine. We illuminate. We adopt a fresh pedagogical approach called ‘Textual Analysis’. It means:

yes london waterloo academyEvery lesson is organised around three texts. Text 1 is usually a set of song lyrics to warm you up for the other texts and familiarise yourself with the culture of the English-speaking world. Text 2 consists of a (or a set of) professional text which prepares you for the competitive world of employment. Text 3 is usually extracted from newspaper articles, magazine articles, and/or books. Sometimes, dialogue transcripts and poems may also be featured! That way, you are exposed to different grammatical and literary situations which ultimately benefit your learning!

yes london waterloo academyTextual analysis focuses on language and organisation. Why is Word A used instead of Word B? How do the language features of a particular text modify the tone so that it is fit for its intended purpose? How can I apply what I’ve learnt to excel in English?

yes london waterloo academyAll lessons are interactive. Instead of having a teacher blabbering for three hours straight, textual analysis entails discussion and discourse. Learners are invited to critique and comment on the language of different texts, and learn how native speakers write and speak.

Extra Perks

Did someone say perks? Yes, you’ve heard that correctly.

yes london waterloo academyThe Multilingual Treatment – your tutor is multilingual, so no matter what language you speak, he will understand the difficulties you are facing when learning English;

yes london waterloo academySmall Group TeachingQueen of my Heart…Just a bit of Westlife, but you get the point. All learners are special here and we show this by teaching in small groups, so that you can make new friends and discuss more openly during lessons;

yes london waterloo academyPersonalised Feedback – we really do roll out the red carpet treatment here. Just ask for it – your tutor will give you specific feedback as to how you can improve your English!

yes london waterloo academyFreebie 1st Lesson – you’ve heard it right! The early bird catches the worm. Your first lesson is now free!

We are the first English language school in central London to have a multilingual blog about English language learning, life in London/the UK, and multiculturalism.
English Language Blog – THE POETIC DREAMER   As the old song goes, ‘dream a little dream of me’…Well, in verse and stanzas I bet!

We are going abroad! Foreign Collaborations! To show that we are genuinely multicultural (well, we choose our words carefully!), we are currently collaborating with a number of organisations abroad and also feature in foreign language media.
