English Language Courses in London

At the Islington Centre for English, we are the English Language Specialists.  We offer a wide range of English courses from General English to First Certificate Exam Preparation, from English Accent Perfection to Business English Evening Courses. At our centre in 97 & 98 White Lion street in London, we typically run 10 English courses at any one time slot which allows us to provide for all levels of proficiency: from Beginner (CEFR A1) to Advanced (CEFR C2).

We have four main time slots for our English courses: Mornings, Afternoon (1), Afternoon (2) and Evenings, so there's no excuse!  Many of our students lead busy lives working locally, so we offer a part-time English course around their lifestyle.  Others are in a hurry and want to make super-fast progress, so we provide them with a Super Intensive English Course in which they study from 9.15 to 3.30pm every weekday.

Central to our philosophy is empowering the student to communicate and speak English confidently and effectively. Ultimately, speaking is the most important skill, so teachers ensure that students have the opportunity to talk to their partner, to the teacher and to the class as a whole.  We want to get you talking! Here are the 6 categories of English courses we run at ICE:
