When can I start my courses?

You can start your course any Monday as long as it is not a Bank Holiday here in England. If there is a Bank Holiday* on your first week, you will then start your course on a Tuesday. Our continuous assessment policy allows us to offer you a class that challenges your current English language proficiency 44 weeks a year. 

* Bank Holidays 2020 10th April (Good Friday), 13th April (Easter Monday), 8th May (Early Many bank holiday), 25th May (Spring bank holiday), 31st August (Summer bank holiday).

**The school will be closed for the Christmas holidays from 23.12.2020  to 04.01.2021

Do I have the right level?

The first step is to do our online test. After that you will have a little chat with Tamara Leacy, our Director of Studies, and she will be able to tell you which of the levels above you should start from. If you are not ready yet, we will prepare a package for you to help you achieve the required level before you start your preparation course.


We offer both host family and residential accommodation to all our students.
