Which is the best English course in London for you?

Our London language school has one of the widest ranges of English courses of any of our campuses, so you have plenty of options to choose from. For a quick-start programme for beginner or elementary English speakers, try a general or intensive English course in London. We have summer options as well that move at a more relaxed pace.

Students can get ready for the IELTS, or any of the many Cambridge English exams in London, or decide to take a gap year or a gap semester to work towards English fluency. Two specialised year-long programmes in Fashion & Design or Media & Art are also on offer. These longer programmes are often combined with a professional internship to gain some workplace experience. Speaking of internships, our London language school has dedicated business English courses for professionals with their own schedule of activities outside of class so you can network more efficiently.

Whichever way you decide to learn English in London, you can count on us to be with you every step of the way, encouraging you, helping you optimise your studies, and guiding you towards the next step in your English learning journey.
