Finding the right fit: Are afternoon classes right for me?

1st February 2023

Are afternoon English classes for me? Celtic English Academy

Afternoon classes are now available for 2023 and offer a cost-effective option for students who prefer to take classes in the afternoon. Are they right for you?

In this article, we’ll explore 9 reasons why afternoon classes may be the perfect match for your learning needs.

1. Affordability

The first, and most obvious, reason for choosing our afternoon classes is the money you will save.

By enrolling in our afternoon classes, you can save up to 34% on class tuition fees.

For example, if you choose the Afternoon General English programme, you can save £380 in a 4-week program and £1560 in a 24-week programme. And, if you choose the Elective + Afternoon General English program, you can save £460 in a 4-week programme and £2040 in a 24-week programme.

What can I do with the money I am saving?

You can use the money you save for your personal expenses, exploring the city of Cardiff or even travelling to other cities during weekends or days off such as London, Manchester, or Edinburgh.

In some cases, the savings from the afternoon classes could even cover a month’s worth of accommodation costs or the cost of an airport transfer.

2. You get to study when it’s best for you

Everyone has a time they learn best. For some students, this may be in the afternoon.

It’s important to think about when your brain is most alert when deciding what classes to take. If you find it hard to focus in the morning, then afternoon classes may be better for you.

If you are a night owl, hitting the snooze button may be tempting in the morning. This is possible with afternoon classes.

3. Your morning routine

Some students like taking their time to get their morning going, maybe eating breakfast and going for a walk.

If you’re an athlete who trains early in the morning, or if you like to go to the gym before classes, taking classes in the afternoon might work well for you.

4. Enjoy more daylight

During the winter, there is more light during the day. This means you can spend your mornings walking around Cardiff, visiting parks or the seaside, and then go to school in the afternoon when it starts to get dark.

Cardiff is a safe city, so people like to be outside even after the sun goes down. When classes end in the afternoon, the streets are full of people and the public transportation works smoothly.

5. Participating more in class

Our teachers prepare the classes in a way that encourages students to speak, debate, and exchange ideas. If you feel like you would participate more in class activities in the afternoon, then this could be a good option for you.

6. Preparing exams and homework

Taking classes in the afternoon gives you more time to finish assignments or prepare for exams before class starts.

7. Active Social Life

Cardiff has a lively nightlife, and students often make the most of it. That’s why if you’re studying for a short period of time and want to go out on weekdays, having afternoon classes might be a good choice. (You can have your mornings free to recover from the previous night!)

8. The same high standards as Morning classes

Our wonderful teachers also lead classes during the morning sessions. So you will get the same learning experience.

9. Nationality Mix

A very diverse mix of nationalities allows students the opportunity to study with students from many different countries.

As you can see, there are more benefits to taking classes in the afternoon than just the cost. When making a decision about class scheduling, it’s important to consider your personal preferences and learning needs.
