Our Approach To Learning

Leicester Language Academy is first and foremost an academic establishment. Learning in an enjoyable and stimulating environment is at the heart of everything we do. To support this, we focus on small class sizes led by qualified tutors with both academic and practical business and commercial experience.

With a broad range of students and staff from many different countries, we are a multi-cultural establishment and we believe that this is a beneficial context for both academic and personal growth. Tolerance, understanding and communication are therefore central to everyday life at the Academy.

Our policies are designed to ensure that no applicant or student receives less favourable treatment on the grounds of race, colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin, religion or philosophical belief, disability, age, sex, sexual orientation, marital status or on any other unlawful basis.

We will ensure that students are accepted and taught on the basis of their relevant aptitudes, skills and abilities.

Whilst encouraging students to familiarise themselves with aspects of British culture, Leicester Language Academy will never discourage students from retaining and expressing elements of their own culture. The Academy will not tolerate racist or sexist behaviour, whether the latter takes the form of overt verbal or physical bullying, insensitivity to alternative lifestyles and cultures, a lack of respect towards different traditions or a disrespectful attitude towards any culture.

English is the common language of Leicester Language Academy; however we have native speakers from many different nationalities. If a situation within Leicester Language Academy requires communication in your native language, we will endeavour to provide language support as appropriate.
