How to choose an English school in Singapore?

When choosing English courses in Singapore, there are several important factors to consider to ensure you select the right course that matches with your goals and preferences.

Here are some key considerations:

1. What are you looking for? Choose the type of English course you need. Common options include general English courses, exam preparation courses (e.g., IELTS, TOEFL), business English, conversation classes and academic English courses.

2. How long do you want to study for? Decide on the length of the course that suits your schedule and goals. English courses can range from short-term intensive programs to long-term courses spanning several months or even years.

3. Is the school legitimate? Look for courses offered by reputable language schools or institutions that are accredited by relevant educational bodies. Check for reviews online.

4. Do you like to school's teaching methods? Ask about the teaching methods used in the course. Effective courses often incorporate a variety of teaching techniques, including interactive activities, real-life situations, and multimedia resources. Take a free trial if possible.

5. Who are the teachers? Check the qualifications and experience of the instructors. Ideally, they should be experienced and qualified in teaching English as a second language, and many students prefer native English-speaking instructors. Meet them first before signing up.

6. How big is the class? Find out the average class size. Smaller classes often allow for more individualised attention and better interaction with instructors.

7. What is the schedule? What if I have to go on a holiday? Check the course schedule and determine if it fits you. Some courses offer flexible scheduling options to accommodate working professionals and students.

8. How much is the course? Any other fees? Compare the tuition fees, registration fees, and any additional costs associated with the course.

By carefully considering these factors and aligning them with your language learning goals and preferences, you can make an informed decision when choosing English courses in Singapore. There are more factors to consider depending on the student. The best advice is do your research, meet with the teacher and go with your heart!
