Language Travel magazine recently held their annual 'Star Awards' ceremony in London. Every year, language travel agents from around the world nominate language schools for the awards based on the level of student satisfaction and the level of service offered to agents.

For international students looking for high quality language programs in a market cluttered by so many schools, enrolling with a ‘Star Award’ school is a great way to guarantee that they have found a school that offers the highest standard of service, an excellent academic program and great value.

The agents voting for the 'Star Schools' enrol anywhere between 20 and 10,000 students in educational programs abroad every year. They are constantly in contact with these schools and receiving feedback from students so they therefore have an excellent knowledge of which language course providers are the best.

LTM Star English Language School - Europe: Centre for English Studies, Ireland and UK.

I don't wish to sound negative here, merely informative, but here's my considered professional opinion as a teacher who has worked at numerous ESL schools around the world.

Contrary to what the poster asserts, choosing an English school because it has won some sort of industry award, is no "guarantee" of high quality.

The problem with such an assertion is that the organizations that bestow such awards tend not to be non-profit organizations; so, there may be a lack of true independence.

Secondly, it is natural to expect that these awards would tend to select bigger schools, at least because they have more awareness in the minds of voting members. The reality is, however, that smaller and therefore less bureaucratic schools often can provide more personal attention to their students.

You might be right but then why aren't the larger schools represented?
