Leicester Language Academy

The International Football Academy, working in partnership with Leicester Language Academy, a specialist English language centre, can offer English tuition for players looking to improve their English Language skills. This can range from IELTS preparation to the internationally recognised ESOL Course.


Leicester Language Academy’s teaching is accredited by the British Council, with the course having two main aims. Whilst also focussing on practical English, which students will encounter in everyday situations.

The second is to help prepare students to sit exams, this can range from IELTS to ESOL.

Small class sizes are essential to optimising learning on an English language course. With this in mind, class sizes for the General English courses are currently capped at 12 students – so early registration is recommended.

There are a range of class levels for students attending from Elementary through to Advanced.

Lessons will take place during our academic days every Tuesday & Thursday (10am – 12pm and 1pm – 3pm).

Which Assessments will I sit and where is it recognised?

Students will be regularly tested in class to monitor their progress. The academy’s teachers will take class performance and test scores into account before advising each student which exam is appropriate for them to study towards before the end of their course.

Completing English language courses can open the door to a range of opportunities including access to both Further and Higher Education either with The International Football Academy or other UK educational institutions.

They can open doors to higher education, improve job prospects and, due to the internationally recognised status of Cambridge ESOL exams, international mobility is increased.
