Course description

The LSI Intensive 30 Course is for students who want to maximize their language learning practice during their stay. The Intensive 30 Course concentrates on all the areas that students need to achieve a much greater fluency in a short period of time. This course is suitable for students who wish to study intensively and get a well rounded insight into the language and country. The courses focus heavily on speaking and communication skills: the morning consists of four lessons in communication skills, while the afternoon classes further intensify the tuition and consolidate what students have learnt through fluency practice and a comprehensive review of the culture and customs of their host country. For those studying English who work in business or are planning a career in business, we offer the LSI Modular English for Business Course, which can be incorporated into your Intensive 30 Course as an afternoon or morning option. Students may also follow examination preparation courses as part of this course.

Course topics

The classes stress the use of language in everyday situations. In 2 lessons each day, students will work on grammar, pronunciation and vocabulary, while in the other 2 lessons, they will focus on reading, writing, speaking and listening. Textbooks and a variety of other materials are used in instruction, including role-playing, newspapers, magazines and other materials. Students focus on special topics and classes in the afternoon. Topics include: fluency practice, media studies, film and theater, local culture, current events, politics, and research using the internet. Intermediate and advanced students also have the option of studying in the test-preparation and business classes.

"LSI gave me a fun alternative to learn English."

LAURA COLMAN, student from Venezuela

I think LSI has an excellent team of teachers. Each of them have a different methodical manner to teach English.

The school is located in a good place. You can find different options to have a lunch. The problem with LSI is you can not take your lunch in a close place inside school, and also you do not have a microwave to heat the food.

There are many activities that you can take for free or paying a promotion price, and you can have fun with a lot with teachers and students.

I recommend this course to future students.

"Beautiful"

Gianluigi Cafiero, student from Italy

I was in LSI Brighton only for 2 weeks, it was a little time to have a lot information.
For me this was a beautiful experience because I came back to the past when I was young without the problem of young people.
About the school I liked teachers and tehir methods, manly Rachel and Jhon.

visa

Visa support

We cannot apply for visas on behalf of students. However, the school can supply you with all the documentation you need to support your visa application.

If you are studying in the UK for over 11 months, you will receive a reference number called a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) that you need to submit to the UK embassy along with your General Student Visa application. Students who have successfully booked a language course and have paid their fees will receive a CAS from LSI Brighton. Please note that UK law states that a CAS can only be issued to students who intend to pursue English language studies for over 11 months.

If you are studying in the UK for 11 months or less, you have to apply for a special visitor visa called a Student Visitor Visa. As a student visitor, you will not be able to work part-time while studying. If you plan to study in the UK for 11 months or less, a letter of acceptance will be sent to your home address by regular mail at no charge to you. If you wish to receive your paperwork by express mail, you will be charged £ 75 when you register.

Flights and airport transfer

The school offers airport pickup services. If you wish to be picked up, just give us your flight details and arrival date. The price of a one-way airport transfer from Gatwick is £ 120. You must book your airport transfer in advance when you register.

Please note that we do not book flights for our students. If you are researching airfare costs, we recommend using Kayak.com, a search engine that lets you compare flight options from your home country to Brighton based on your budget, schedule and preferences.

Travel insurance

Study abroad worry-free with Language International's health and personal effects insurance coverage. When you book a course with us, you can opt to purchase an international insurance plan that covers not only your health care cost but also loss of your personal belongings. You must book your insurance in advance when you register.
