I have been studying English for 9 months in London where I tried different schools and I believe that SGI is the best that I have ever chosen. Kind and helpful they helped me not only with the English but also with the daily life. The teachers are present, prepared and do their best to help you. I still keep in contact with some of them and some time we go out together, wonderful!!!

Review by Pezzottini6 years ago
The staff is really nice and helpul but some of the teachers are not very concerned and not well aware of what is asked at the exam (CAE). The preparation wasn't very good, a lot of students have failed the exam and we had the impression that the exam level was much higher that the exercises we used to do at the school. I have appreciated working in a small group and the other students were friendly.
I would recommend the school even though it is quite expensive if you have time to work a lot on your own in addition to the schoolwork and if you have someone to help you.

I am really satisfied by the SGI's language course. I had to improve my kowledge realising some grammar mistakes delivering from my study at High School. The teachers' team was very professional and prepared in teaching method. I needed to correct the grammar mistakes and to incrase my speaking and listening's skills and now I feel to have achieved a positive result. I believe that the quality of theaching and the human resources are the main hallmark of a foreign languages school. I thank to Joanne, Tim, Nicky and Jemma.
I hope to be back in London as soon as possible for my job showing your staff my future improvements.

I really enjoyed my experience at SGI and I would certainly recommend it to my friends.
The IELTS course in the morning was very helpful, I learned a lot of useful tecniques in order to deal with the exam. The teachers were well prepared and both their work ethic and explaining skills were great, not to mention they were nice and kind persons.
From my perspective, the only thing to improve is the class composition. I think that there was a big difference between some guys' background in my classroom and that caused some minor accidents

Review by Brandy6 years ago
The course was always very interesting and funny, all the teachers were so prepared and nice that every morning was more than a pleasure to meet them and have lessons! Moreover, the classmates were friendly and open-minded! I was so sad on my last day....I really didn't want to leave the school!!!
I hope I will be able to enrole SGI again soon!
I suggest everybody should live such an useful and pleasant experience there!

The English teachers are great and easy to build rapport with, specially Emily (Danielle also) who has been doing very well, thank you! I have gained lots of confidence on my day-to-day English speaking since I've started my English class at SGI.
The school should pay a bit more attention, interviewing everyone individually, before the English Course starts, just to make sure if they will be taught on their right level of English equally and fairly. Sometimes, a feel a bit stuck in the classroom when I need to work with some classmates as a group. I also doubt if some of them are on the right group, because they are not able to communicate properly or if it was me being too demanding.
The teachers, who come to replace the absence of others permanent teachers, shouldn't waste such a long time getting used to know every single student very well, as they are there, just to continue the English lessons schedule and program. Further more, some students don't feel comfortable at all to tell everybody what they do for living.
Hope my points of views weren't too strong. But, this is the way I feel and think.

Good training method in line with exams expectations
Review by Eligijus Rudiak6 years ago
Even though, school has some organizational issues, teachers really make the difference! Classes are intense, and for me they paid off pretty well. I've gotten 7.5 on my IELTS. If I hadn't been so stressed out, it would have been even more than that.
Altogether, decent expedience despite minor organizational failures.
Review by Slonk6 years ago
I would definitely recommend SGI. The learning environment is top class and there is no better place to learn the English language. Intimate classes with a real focus of delivering quality lessons.
Review by Viseant6 years ago
I spent a great time in London and I had the chance to meet new people while studying to get my qualification. Everyone was very nice and cooperative and even if the course was very intense you could tell they wanted you to succeed and that they were there for you. I would do it again immediately and I would recommend it to anyone who loves English and wants to practice it.
Review by Abdiaziz6 years ago
They got a social program after class which is really nice to help discovering London.
Well situated, no problem with accomodations, many nationalities in the school which is really nice to practice spoken english.
Only thing is that in summer St george is more like a university for young students than a professionnal training course, but it could also be an advantage to discover London another way !

I went in SGI three times and I have not been disapointed once. This school has really nice and effective teachers and I thanks them a lot for helping to get the IELTS and to allow me to start my studies in London !
Review by Chickee Soboleanu6 years ago
- Teachers ([names] – I can just assess these three): friendly, well-trained (the biggest asset of the school).
- Social program
- Questionnaire after the first day
- School is well-organized
- Possibility to do progress test
- Accommodation (Ms [Name], [Private Data])
- The lunch break is too short. It’s impossible to have a stress-free lunch. At least 15 minutes more would be a little better.
- Facilities, building, rooms:
High CO2 level in the rooms (Concentration is difficult after half an hour), no possibility to bring fresh air into the rooms (no windows)
Rooms are too small. The corridors are too slim (it’s not possibly to pass with other people in a normal way).
I didn’t like it when the students had to leave the room after the lessons (because it’s the teachers room).
In the break there is not enough space were you can do normal business (like undisturbed telephoning).
The toilet in the ground floor isn’t working as it should (there are problems with the flush) – it’s never clean. Furthermore in the first week the hot water in this toilet wasn’t working.
In a nutshell: The location is absolutely unacceptable! Because of these points I would not recommend this school to other students (especially in the summer – during this time it’s also too hot!).
- Course book: We never used it. I paid 25.00 pounds!
I think you really should find another building or invest in renovating these rooms (e.g. ventilation system with fresh air). I really like the way of teaching here and I would like return soon. Regrettably I wouldn’t to be able to return if the conditions stay the same. Until these conditions improve I will recommend my company not to send further more employees to SGI.
I would be happy to discuss these concerns further with you by email. I’m looking forward to hearing from you.
