Who are we?
Kaplan International Colleges is a leading provider of English language courses and other study abroad programs. We take great pride in ensuring that our students have the opportunities and tools to succeed, and our educators offer consistently high standards of teaching.
We have 42 English language schools in England, Scotland, Ireland, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Malta, and our classrooms are filled with students from all over the world. Part of the Kaplan experience is making new international friends.
Our destinations have been chosen to maximize the fun and education students get outside of the classroom, too. We have schools in beach towns, big cities and near historical and cultural centers. A course with Kaplan isn’t just about lessons in a classroom, it’s a life experience.
Kaplan International Colleges is a division of Kaplan, Inc. (a subsidiary of the Washington Post Company).
Kaplan International students learn through the communicative method of teaching. This means that classroom time is spent on using real-world, practical skills to improve their knowledge of English. Students focus on the four key building blocks of language: reading, writing, listening and speaking. Classroom activities reflect real situations, and are structured so students communicate as much as possible.
Some examples of classroom activities are:
Writing an e-mail to a friend
Role-playing a dinner conversation
Listening to a train station announcement
Reading newspaper articles
By learning how to communicate in these everyday situations while still in the classroom, students are more prepared for conversations with friends, traveling around an English-speaking country and conversations with new friends and colleagues.
