LSI Level Testing

Students are required to take LSI’s online English level test to help us place you into the right class. As well as a digital test online, students are given a speaking test as part of the enrolment and orientation process by an academic manager when we can further discuss your own language

Digital Coursebooks & Supplementary Materials

All LSI online English students receive digital coursebooks from Oxford University Press & National Geographic as well as access to our own supplementary materials. All digital materials are included in our tuition fees.

LSI is not only a school, its a place where we felt completely safe, where we made friends for the rest of our lives, where we find support, kindness, and the best professionals who will look after you forever! LSI its a FAMILY and I am proud to say that I am part of this amazing community! They have the best professionals, who give us everything we need to became fluent and secure with the language, and to keep improving after our time there. In my experience in Vancouver I had Kevin as director, hes the best! Hes an amazing professional who gave me the support that I needed with Linda ( my teacher, who I consider my Canadian mother) to became a Cambridge student and have success in my professional life! After two years that Ive been there, Kevin and Sallie , from LSI in London were extremely kind and professional to help me solving a problem and I can say that I became even more fan of LSI than I was before( if it was possible)They showed a genuine concern for their students, a magnificent teamwork, impeccable professionalism and organisation beside all the kindness they had with me. I not only extremely recommend, I must to say: LSI is THE BEST school, with the best professionals I have ever met!Thank you very much for everything Kevin, Linda, Sallie... LSI team youre an example to be followed as professionals and human beings!You have my admiration forever

I had attended the Morning class (Advanced level) about 2 month for preparing my MBA Course. Teacher Michael(Advanced level class) is the best English teacher I've met so far. The morning class begins from 9am to 1pm(4 HOURS!) but I NEVER felt boring or tried to attend the class. I strongly recommend to take classes of Teacher Michael to anyone! And I thank for LSI New York Staff ( Ms.Kerry, Ms.Lucy and Ms. Jil). They are very nice to support the LSI students.And also I met great of great international friends from the class.Briefly, It was the best.

The atmosphere was very positive and friendly. You could concentrate in studying and not think about what you don't know.
