11 Interesting facts about the English Language

Featured

Almost 1 billion people speak English as a first or second language, which makes it the second most-spoken language after Mandarin. It is as fascinating as it is popular with its own history and quirks. Learners of English work hard on grammar, vocabulary and other theoretical aspects and often forget to enjoy English’s most entertaining side. To help with this task, our Director of Studies Marianne compiled a list of some fun and interesting facts about this amazing language.

FCE Course-A challenging experience!

FCE Course-A Challenging Experience!

Guido from Italy returned to Tti in October to take our FCE Exam Preparation Course. He first studied with us on a General English Course between January until July and then he decided to return to challenge himself on this 8 week intensive course. Read about his experience.

I started the FCE course one month ago and it was not like I expected it. So what did I find in this course?

First of all the programme is very hard and with a lot of detail. Every student has to learn a lot of vocabulary and grammar. Moreover, every expression and word that we study is very specific and it can be used only in a certain context.

Secondly, the thing that I most enjoy is my teacher and classmates. I did not expect to find such lovely students and professional teacher. The atmosphere in the classroom is always nice and we help each other. Furthermore, the teacher really cares about our progress and  exam and he is ready to help us with every problem.

Finally, my advice to any students taking this course next year or considering it would be to recommend doing extra homework on top of those that you receive from your teacher! You’ll need to study hard but it is worth the effort!

FCE

To conclude at the moment this is an excellent and useful experience that I suggest to everyone wants to improve his English and challenge himself in a different way.

Exam Courses at Tti!

Our Exam Courses finished last week. Maria studied on the FCE preparation course and took the exam last weekend. Read all about her experience!

Nowadays, most people know how to speak English, even if it is not their mother tongue because most companies demand a high level of English, but how they can they find out what their exact level of English is? Take an exam!

DSC_0280

FCE (First Certificate in English), is a Cambridge Exam which allows you to know if your level of English is high enough for the job. The exam has 4 parts. Reading and Use of English, Speaking, Listening and Writing.All of them have specifics exercises and require different skills and it is necessary to achieve an overall score of 60%.

If you want to prepare properly for the exam, you should book a FCE course where they teach you to do the exercises, focus on exam skills as well and improving your grammar and increasing your knowledge of vocabulary and then you will be ready to take the exam as I did.

My most challenging section of that course was Part 1 Reading and Use of English because of my low grammar skills, however I enjoyed the classes a lot and of course, I have improved my grammar skills.

If you are interested in taking this course and want some advice then ask your teacher about any doubts you have and for sure you will pass the exam.

Where will an English Course take you in 2017? Caroline tells us about her experience.

Caroline studied on an IELTS course with us at Tti School of English last year! She is now living and studying in London. Read on to find out where her English course at Tti took her!

I moved to London in January last year, with my boyfriend. We had always wanted to study abroad and as both are passionate about music, we decided that London would be the perfect place for us. When we decided to move to London, I started to look at different options. As a singer and dancer, my first plan was to either audition for parts or apply for a musical education. The thought of applying to a University felt out of reach, due to the high level of English required. My English grade from Sweden was not enough to be accepted into university, which led me to research different English Courses in London.

I have always been insecure about my English and especially my writing, that is why I decided that an English course would be a great opportunity to improve my English. The Swedish company “Sprakpunkten” got me in contact with Tti School of English in Camden Town. The location of the school, the different options of courses and the smaller sizes of the classes, are what made me choose Tti.

During my time at Tti I got to work with fantastic teachers that helped me improve my English in both writing, speaking, reading and listening. All the staff were very helpful and friendly. The social programme gave me an opportunity to meet new people and to improve my English in a different environment.

I did two different courses during my four months at Tti, General English and IELTS. The latter was a suggestion from a teacher, and without it I would not have completed the exam with the same results. The teachers always encouraged me to improve and challenge my English level, which made me confident enough to apply for university.

After a nerve-racking IELTS exam, I finally got the English grade I needed and my application for university got accepted. I am now studying a Bachelor Degree in Music Business and Arts Management at Middlesex University!

Something that almost seemed impossible one and half year ago when I first came to London. On the 28th of May, I am organising my first gig here in London with the music promotion company Float Live Music, that my boyfriend and I started earlier this year. This project is a part of my education and is hopefully just a beginning to bigger projects.
