Free speaking practice

The Language Resources Centre offers free speaking practice for students with a native speaker to improve conversational skills. Our speakers are volunteers and come from the richly diverse King's community.

The LRC also offers a wide variety of resources, workshops and events as well as multilingual learning advisors who are always on hand to help you make the most of the facilities.

Teaching style

We use the immersion method of language teaching. This means majority of the course will be conducted in the language of study. Our teachers use a communicative approach in class, practising the following four skills:

  • Speaking
  • Reading
  • Listening
  • Writing

Students engage in interactive language activities, participating in group and pair work according to a syllabus based on systematic grammatical progression.

 

High quality language tuition

The MLC employs over 100 teaching staff who are native speakers of the language they teach and have in-depth knowledge of language teaching methodology.

Many of our teachers also have expertise in other areas such as journalism, politics, business, international affairs and the health sector.
