Welcome! Hello! Hiya!


And so we begin our new term.

The warmest welcome to all our new students. This is  our favourite time of the year as we get to meet you all.

If you are feeling lost, puzzled, a bit lonely, cold (!),  or  simply want to tell us about your home country as you settle in, please come and make  yourself known to us here in the Learning Centre on the 2nd Floor.

We have information on interesting places to visit in Manchester-  plus magazines, nespapers, DVDS – and all the textbooks you will need to succeed.

Come and say hello!

Resource of the Week: The Week


The Week: Keep Up with the World!

Taken from over 200 print and online sources, The Week brings you news, comment and opinion from the UK and international media. It’s a great way of keeping up to date with what’s going on in both the UK and at home in one handy magazine; it’s also a great thing to read to practice your English reading and understanding.

The first 2 pages always round up the main stories from different newspapers- so it’s useful for looking at “media bias”- that is, how the same story may be reported in a different way.

As well as discovering all of the main stories, key opinions and comment, you will also get a flavour of the week’s cultural highlights, including art exhibitions, books, theatre, films, sport, people, new gadgets, travel and recipes. You will come across as very cultured and clever if you read The Week and it may improve your cooking – I made a lovely lentil soup from a recipe I saw in The Week!
