A Personal Experience

We are smaller than many of our competitors and this allows us to create an environment where everyone can get to know each other. We believe that this makes for a more focused and enjoyable learning experience.

Whether it’s a group course or private lesson, our tutors will take the time to understand you and your goals. So that all our students can receive individual attention, we deliberately keep our class sizes small. The average class size is 10 and the maximum class size is 15.

Mission Statement

At KAE (part of the David Game College Group) it is our aim to ensure that all our students fulfil their learning potential and improve their English in a caring and nurturing environment whilst also gaining valuable insight into British life and culture. Ensuring that our students have the best experience while they are studying with us means we will strive to provide excellent value for money.

45 Years’ Experience

KAE has been teaching English since 1978. Our experience helps us understand how students learn effectively. Over the years, we have improved the language skills of thousands of students.

You might be learning English for your career, to advance your academic studies or to develop a new skill. Whatever the case, KAE can help you achieve your goals.

Quality Assured

KAE is accredited by the British Council for the teaching of English in the UK and we are a member of English UK. This means we are continually assessed and have to meet very high standards. We are regularly visited by independent inspectors who make sure we comply with strict regulations relating to our teachers, facilities and lesson quality.

We have a great reputation amongst former students. That’s why 96% of our students said that their English had improved after studying with us.

College & Facilities

Our college is located in the very centre of the city (Zone 1), close to iconic buildings such as the Tower of London, the Gherkin, the Bank of England and the Shard. We are a short walk away from most of London’s main attractions.

We have recently renovated a historic and beautiful building as part of a multi-million pound development plan. Our students will benefit from modern facilities as well as spacious classrooms.

Our Staff & Teaching Methods

KAE teachers are trained and enthusiastic professionals who aim to provide a stimulating and enjoyable learning experience. At the beginning of each lesson we will identify key objectives for the group or individual. This allows us to provide a focused teaching style that maximises your time in class.

Our teachers aim to create a positive, fun and friendly learning environment that will challenge you. We try to be as supportive and encouraging as possible to help you feel at ease.

The minimum class duration is a full 60 minutes and can go up to 90 minutes. Many other English language schools include breaks in lesson time, shortening them by ten or fifteen minutes. We always strive to maximise your learning time.

Before you arrive, we will give you access to a placement test which helps us determine your level of English. You will also be given exclusive access to our e-learning area where you can learn online to supplement your studies.
