The credibility of courses. Note that if courses were established not so long time ago, it is more evidently that they didn't establish solid reputation and wouldn't be able to provide you with all necessary facilities, professional teachers and guarantee you respectable certificate. The recognition of courses by Council of country language of which you are studying. This factor is highly important when choosing language courses. If courses are recognized by Council it acknowledges that level of language teaching offered in these courses is adequate. Keep in mind that courses attached to Council are always more respectable. First, tutors there are native speakers. Second, certificate of The Council is generally accepted. The curriculum of course. Clarify at once whether course you are going to take is a set of modules designed for students taking short-term courses or it is a full structured course. Keep in mind that way language is taught is a very important point, because methodic of teaching foreign language as a second language differs much from methodic of teaching this language as a native one. The variety of programs courses can offer (business, conversational language, language for some specific fields, for Law, for medicine, intensive course). The diversity of languages and programs courses can propose adds up to their credibility and reliability. The longevity of holidays. For sure there must be a break in studying, but it mustn't be too long for you not to forget everything you've learned. You must be in language speaking environment as much as possible. Hence, language must be on credit side, you should use language actively. The courses fee. Check all money details very carefully. Check whether registration fee is included in general price for course. Get to know what a variation of fee for different programs is. Make sure if there any discounts for program you are going to attend. The organization of any extracurricular activities: social events, excursions, discussion halls. Get to know if there is any extra charge for these.
Hope that these selection criteria of foreign language courses will come in handy to you and will help you choose courses where you master language perfectly well. Test them in practice and make certain that they are sure fire to work.
