Set Your Objectives and Personalise Your Course

LSI has been teaching English programmes since 1965 and now has 14 different schools in 7 countries.

As educationalists, we have been committed to innovation in language acquisition for over 50 years, and so we’ve carefully developed the very best online English programme.

Not only is our programme tailored to your specific level and language skills, but to your motivations and lifestyle as well.

Set Your Objectives

As part of the enrolment and orientation process, you can define your specific learning objectives and our academic managers will then ensure that these objectives form the basis of your programme.

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
objectives.

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.

I've improved my English for 3 weeks. LSI has good teachers and gave us an opportunity to practice with people who came from different cultures. I recommend.

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.
