Malvern House Students Speak to The BBC About Learning English
Released on: December 10, 2010, 6:54 am
London, 10 December 2010 – In June, the team behind the BBC
series Better Speaking came to Malvern House with some questions for
its Chinese students. They wanted to know what kinds of challenges the
students faced in their language studies and what kind of advice they
could offer to other students trying to overcome those challenges.
The students were delighted to speak to the BBC and talk about their experiences to
help others with their language studies. Most of their comments focused upon issues
such as confidence when speaking and writing, the problems of vocabulary, and the
specific pronunciation problems that Chinese students face when learning English.
Malvern House teaches several English language modules and assists students from
more than 100 countries in their language learning. Situated in the heart of London
with classrooms near Piccadilly, Trafalgar Square and in Bloomsbury, Malvern House
recognises the value of coupling a classroom experience with time among native
speakers. They offer varied courses that cater for a variety of language needs. Some
courses provide a general overview of the English language while others are more
specialised. There are courses for university preparation, as well as ones for those
in the business sector.
Moving abroad to take English courses in London can be daunting – both the language and the city are unfamiliar. The streets wind in unexpected ways while the city stretches on for what seems like forever. Different boroughs offer diverse experiences and have their own specific personalities. Each student at this English language school is
adventurous and ready to take on the challenge of learning the language and living
in this city. This is what attracted the BBC.
About Malvern House College: Malvern House College is an independent English
language college that was established in 2000. Malvern House was accredited by the
British Council in 2003 and has had a competitive quality edge over other language
providers in the market place ever since.
