This English language course is tailored specifically for international students studying summer school courses in English here at the London School of Economics and Political Science.


Classes will deal with listening, discussion, reading and writing. Emphasis will be placed on note-taking, appropriate academic style and presentation practice. Grammar needs will be dealt with within the framework of the material being used. On the final day of the course, students will be required to give a group presentation.

Class structure

Students in the English language course from London School of Economics and Political Science are divided into groups according to the subject they intend to study during the following weeks. When there are very few students opting for a particular course, they will be placed in a group whose subject most closely corresponds to theirs.

Please note that teachers aim to work as far as possible with material which is similar to or connected with that of the course subjects, but we must stress that we are primarily teachers of English.

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • Students will be exposed to lectures during this intensive week that address current issues in the social sciences, giving the opportunity to practise listening and note-taking skills.
