The right English course in Bournemouth

Choosing the right English course in Bournemouth can be a challenge because there are quite a number of options. So what sets our English courses apart? For one thing, they are all full-time. If you're looking to schedule a few hours of English classes around your job or family commitments, we're not for you. For another, our students come from all over the world. If you'd like to study mainly with other people from your own country, this is also not a good choice for you.

Our English school in Bournemouth is in a large historic building which means we have fantastic facilities. A spacious private garden, a library, lots of classrooms, and a cafe are all part of the student experience. You can easily spend all day in our English school, and we'd encourage you to! It's a safe space to practice your English where nobody is going to make fun, nobody is going to laugh, and everybody is in the same boat, all pulling together.

If this sounds like the right kind of English course for you, get in touch. We'd love to take you on a tour of our English school in Bournemouth so you can form your own opinion.

What makes learning English with us in Bournemouth so different?

The main thing that sets our English school in Bournemouth apart from so many others is that 100% of our students are studying English full time. That means everyone spends lots of time at school and goes on excursions together outside of class. There's a real sense of community. Our Bournemouth English school isn't gigantic. It's just the right size for you to get lots of personal attention from your teachers and meet pretty much everybody else who's studying there at the same time you are. If you'd like to join a positive and engaging English school in Bournemouth, get in touch.
