SGI staff speak the lanaguages of the world

Saint George International is where the world comes to learn English.

We welcome all nationalities and over the history of SGI since 1962, there are not many nations left on the planet that have not sent a student to improve English skills in London with the SGI teachers. And why wouldn’t they? A British government inspection team officially rated the English teaching at the school as ‘outstanding’ and ‘excellent’.

The atmosphere among the students is always great and it’s a global family all speaking English together. You can experience this learning environment every day in all of our different English courses and also, of course on the daily student social programme around London’s highlights.


But did you know that the staff at SGI speak many languages between them?

Take a look at this list of the world’s languages spoken by current SGI office staff and teachers.

Spanish, Italian, French, German, Portuguese, Russian, Turkish, Japanese, Mandarin, Malay, Cantonese, Slovenian, Croatian, Serbian, Swedish, Finnish, Malagasy, Greek and Hebrew.

OK, so it’s not ALL the languages of the world, but we can definitely say that a large percentage of the world population is covered by the language skills of people available to speak to you on the phone at SGI London.
