We have been running our English courses in the west of England for over 10 years. Most of our groups come from schools that have enjoyed the courses and the English classes so much that they return with students year after year.
Our English courses, take place at the school, in the centre of Barnstaple, located near to shops and cafes. They combine morning classes with afternoon excursions around the North Devon region. English classes focus on speaking and listening, and groups are split according to ability.
Our teachers are qualified and have many years experience of teaching all ages and abilities. We want our students to enjoy learning and English classes are designed to be interesting and engaging.
Below you will find a sample programme for our 7 day language course. We also offer 10 day, 2 week and 3 week courses. Please contact us for more information.
