We hope you continue to enjoy your online English classes at IH London!
While you are studying at home, we have lots of ideas and tips for helping you practise your English skills. Similarly, as our ability to socialise outdoors is limited just now, there are plenty of ways to enjoy the local British culture online. Take a look at our advice and social events below.
Time for a Chat?
Want some more speaking practice and the chance to meet new students? Why not join our conversation club every Tuesday between 3.30 – 4.30pm? Each week you will get to discuss everyday topics while learning new phrases and vocabulary from our teacher James. No need to sign up in advance, you can just come along and join in via this link. So grab a cup of tea, a few biscuits and get ready to have a chinwag*.
