Tackling English Pronunciation Has Never Been More Fun

Learning English has never been more rewarding thanks to our Improve your Pronunciation classes at Kensington and Chelsea College. The 10 week course is filled with fun and innovative ways of improving your pronunciation including unconventional methods such as candle blowing race.

Many of our students, once completing Improve your Pronunciation Stage 1 progress on to Stage 2, which can lead on to a number of paths including a one of our full-time ESOL courses.

Mercedes Castillo, former student of Improve Your Pronunciation describes Nuria – tutor of improving your pronunciation – style of teaching, techniques and methods:

Based on my personal experience, I have found she has developed a powerful method to help adults understand the different sounds that exists in English. Mercedes Castillo


Nuria’s teaching style is unique. she projects her passion for teaching pronunciation, and she is continually thinking OF new techniques to help us. Mercedes Castillo

Former ESOL Student Looks Forwards To Future In Fashion

Former ESOL Student Looks Forwards To Future In Fashion

Former ESOL student-turned-Model Aramatou Toure has a bright future in Fashion and says it’s all thanks to the help and support she received at the College.

Originally from the Ivory Coast, Aramatou joined the College 7 years ago. Not knowing any English, she enrolled on an ESOL course, where she learnt to speak and write English.

Speaking about her experience on the ESOL course Aramatou said: “I have improved my English a great deal and write and speak it confidently and that has boosted my self-esteem, which is important to have in life.”

7 years on, Aramatou has gained enough confidence to embark on a career in modelling – entering and number of competitions including the prestigious Miss Borough UK Competition.

She has also thrived academically; progressing onto a number of Fashion Courses including Pattern Cutting and Garment making. And with goals of becoming a Fashion Designer in the future, Aramatou is well on her way to a flourishing career in the Fashion Industry.

Speaking about her time on the Garment Making course, Aramatou says: “Now I am able to make garments, I can produce my own clothes, and I hope soon to make clothes for others.”

She went on to say: “Studying at the College has really helped me become the confident Model I am today. I would definitely recommend taking a course at Kensington and Chelsea College.”
