Is the school accredited? 

We are accredited by the British Council for the teaching of English. 

What qualifications do the teachers have? 

All our teachers hold a CELTA or Trinity CERT TESOL certificate or higher. 

How do I register for a course? 

Please complete the online registration form. You will receive a confirmation by email within a few hours. 

When can I start my course? 

You can start your class on any Monday. If Monday is a public holiday then courses start on Tuesday. 

Can I start my course on a day other than Monday? 

Wherever possible, you should try to start your English course on Monday. However, it is also possible to start in the middle of the week when you are not able to arrive on a Monday. 

Will I get a certificate at the end of my course? 

You will receive a statement of attendance at the end of your course. It states the duration of the course as well as your level of English. 

How far in advance do I have to make my booking? 

For the biggest choice of accommodation options please book as early as possible but, in general, it is also possible to enroll on a course at fairly short notice. 

How close are the host families to the school? 

Most of our host families do not live within walking distance from the school. They are in some of the lovely suburbs in south London. You can choose if you want to stay with a family in zone 1, 2, or 3. All our host families are close to public transport. You may have to travel up to 60 minutes to get to school depending on the travel zone you choose. 

What happens if I don’t like my accommodation? 

Should there be any problems with the host family, we will help you to solve them and if necessary, change your accommodation.
