How do I register for a course?

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

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 also possible to enrol for a course at fairly short notice.

Can I start my course on dd.mm.yyyy?

We have availability for all courses and accommodation availability is excellent. You can start your class on any Monday. If Monday is a public holiday then courses start on a Tuesday.

Where is the school located?

Where better to study than in the heart of London. The school is based on Oxford Street – just a few steps away from Tottenham Court Road tube station. Oxford Street is a major road in the City of Westminster in the West End of London. It is Europe’s busiest shopping street, and as of 2011 had approximately 300 shops.

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

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

Is the school accredited?

We are accredited by The British Council so all of our teachers are fully qualified. We have also been inspected by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI).

What is British Council recognition?

The British Council is an official organisation that, amongst other activities, offers a voluntary scheme for monitoring and assessing English language schools in the UK. ‘Accreditation’ by the British Council means that a school has passed the tests of quality set by the British Council’s English in Britain Accreditation Scheme. This accreditation is seen by many as an indication of the quality of the lessons offered by the school. See the British Council web site for more information.

What qualifications do the teachers have?

All of the teachers have a degree level qualification (as minimum) and a recognised certificate in teaching English to foreign students (this does not include the free courses).

What teaching methods does your school use?

Our school uses a variety of teaching methods depending on what is being taught: grammar, comprehension, conversation etc. All teachers are fully qualified and selected for their teaching skills.

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

Every student receives a statement of attendance at the end of their course which contains the duration of the course as well as the student’s level of English according to the CEFR for languages.

How close is the homestay accommodation to the school?

Most of the homestay accommodation is not within walking distance from the school but is typically located in one of the lovely suburbs around London. You can choose to stay in zone 1, 2, 3 or 4; the price depends on which zone you choose. We always try to arrange accommodation close to public transport and on average you will travel up to 30 minutes to the school depending on the zone you choose.

What happens if I don’t like my accommodation?

Should there be any problems with your chosen accommodation, the school and agency will work closely together to solve any problems you have.
