    Available accommodation

    • Host Family
    • Shared Apartment
    • Summer Residence

    Accommodation can be arranged in carefully selected host families on a half board basis, or in self-catering shared student houses. Our recommendation would always be host family accommodation, as this provides full immersion in the English language and culture, and is therefore always the best option linguistically.


    An important part of learning a language is understanding and experiencing the culture. Therefore, our school in Bournemouth offers students a wide range of activities, including lectures, films, music and quizzes amongst many others. The school also puts on a traditional pantomime at Christmas! You can also take part in many sporting activities, such as tennis, aerobics, football, swimming, trampolining and martial arts. The school also arranges regular excursions to other places of interest in the UK, such as London, Bath, Oxford, Stratford-upon-Avon, Salisbury and Stonehenge.
