A word from Head of Business Development
Ah, summertime- A sunny day in London is better than a good day anywhere else in the world. The sun has started to shine, and the days have lengthened, the weather is hot, and you feel as if you can stretch up and touch the sky. We all feel like summer has taken over us, but remember; summer always remains the same, it is our mood that changes. Thus, more than ever, it is now London o’clock. :)
The May newsletter is once again here with you to update you on what has happened throughout May in our campuses and what’s coming in June. The students have participated in many social activities, and they’ve been all around London spending time with their friends and socialising. I am sure you are aware of our on-going campaign for this summer, if not yet, here is a clue; “2 tickets for 2 people” to study here with us. If you want to learn more about it, please have a look at our website and for newsletter for more details.
As I mentioned in the opening of the letter, summer is here, and I am not going to bore you with a long letter this time so I will close here with a sincere thank you. Thank you to all our students, to our future students, to our long-term partners and to our future partners. Your trust and confidence in UKCE have helped us build remarkable campuses and beyond these, there is something deeper and meaningful: the reward that comes only to those who have truly committed to what they’ve been doing and who are always open to change. We will maintain staying true to our purpose and focus on the long term, while adapting to this new world around us.
Hope to see you soon. Sincerely, Beren

Meet Lara, Assistant Head of Academic Delivery
Hello Lara! Could you please tell us about yourself?
Lara- Hi! I’m originally from a small village in Essex but have lived in Austria, Israel and Brazil.
So, What’s your story? How did get where you are today?
Lara- I started teaching in Austria through the British Council. It was only supposed to be a 1 year placement, but I met my now husband and ended up staying and qualifying to teach EFL. I also taught English in high schools in London but returned to EFL 12 years ago and still love it.
What was your life like before you began working as a teacher?
Lara- Teaching is all I’ve ever known and wanted to do.
What was most surprising to you about English language teaching?
Lara- How motivated our students are to learn! I’m also always impressed at the general level of English and other foreign languages spoken by our students compared to English secondary school age children.
Could you tell our students what the achievement or contribution that you are most proud of is?
Lara- I love watching students advance through levels. It always makes me happy when I help a student who started at beginner level eventually prepare for university or exam class.
Is there anything or any advice you would like to share with students?
Lara- Make friends with someone who doesn’t speak your language. Even meeting for the occasional coffee or other activity out of class will really help your fluency…and don’t forget to do your homework!
Thanks a lot for your time, Lara!
