Take an English course in Bournemouth, a delightful coastal town which is home to golden sands and twinkling blue seas. This English seaside town is often described as having some of the best beaches in the UK, not to mention Boscombe which is just 2 miles from the city and attracts water sports fanatics from all walks of life! Not only is the city famous for its beaches, but also for the lush green countryside that surrounds it, meaning that you’ll never be far from nature during your stay here. Bournemouth is an ideal location whatever the season - in summer you can soak up some glorious English sunshine or pay a visit to the International Air festival, and in winter you can take a stroll around the magnificent street markets and do a bit of shopping. And with excellent links to nearby cities such as London, Oxford and Cambridge, you will find yourself at the perfect base to explore during your free time!

If you have specific requirements or prefer more one-on-one time with the teacher, opt for a course of Private Lessons. This option allows you to really customise your English course and focus on any particular aspect of the language that you choose.
Stay with a host family on a half-board basis for a complete immersion into the language and culture.
