Fluency in English

Study English to get a head start

The English language is one of the most sought-after language skills in international business, and a requirement for many of the world’s top universities. While learning English can be a difficult challenge, there are ways to make this experience as rewarding and beneficial as possible

Live as an English speaker

The best way to learn a foreign language is to immerse yourself in the culture and language. With Kaplan you can take an Intensive English course, a more relaxed Vacation or General English course, or even take a year or a semester to build your English. Studying in an English-speaking city offers the most thorough and comprehensive route to English fluency. Living among native speakers will help you master everyday language on top of your English lessons.

Learn the essential language skills

Kaplan courses will give you a strong basis in the four most important skills: reading, writing, listening and speaking. Use your classroom time to communicate, build vocabulary and even focus on your interests. Take advantage of Special Skills courses and study English films, prepare for an English exam or one of many other choices. 

Make lifelong social and professional connections

Meet people from around the world with experience at all levels, and spend time exploring and learning together. The kind of relationships people build at Kaplan can lead to worldwide travels, business opportunities and lasting friendships.
