Introduction to Studying English in the UK

Studying English in the UK offers a gateway to not only mastering the language but also immersing oneself in British life. This guide explores the benefits of choosing the UK for your English language education and highlights the top English language schools across popular destinations.

Our Summer School for Groups

We are fortunate to be able to offer a fantastic experience to any groups of students in from outside of Britain in our Extra Summer Progammes. Offering a focus on fun and study in a group based setting in the beautiful town of Cheltenham in the Cotswolds. Close to Oxford, Bristol, Birmingham and only 2 hours by coach to London.

Including a mixture of activites and EFL classes with fully qualified teachers – it is a perfect opportunity to practise our England language, and build up conversation confidence – and hugely improve students confidence, and hopefully make new friends too.

Usually starting with a exam or test to understand fluency through each student – they can then be placed into a team to get the most out of the week, or two week period which is recommended. Our partners will support you throughout the whole booking process and assure you get the right balance between culture and study.

Usually the courses run over the summer period, so June, July and August, the course can run as an exchange with any other school in the area. Where a group of students can go and study in an English school for a period of time. Perfect qualities to learn for going to University.

We also prefer as part of our package, the young people to stay in a host family, rather than a hotel, to further enhance their experience and make new friends.
