Study Breaks/ Specialist Courses

North Devon School of English offers a variety of specialist courses from study breaks for small groups and indiividuals to specilaist courses in Business and Media English.

North Devon School of English organises courses for large groups but we also offer unique study break courses for smaller groups and individuals.

These courses are a great way to learn the language, or develop your English skills, in smaller intensive classes, working closely with a personal English tutor. You will stay with an English family and attend class in the morning, leaving you time to study in the afternoon or explore the local area.

We can help with all arrangements, from airport transfer to arranging local transport and advise you on the best places to see and visit. As an independent language school we are more flexible than larger language organisations and provide courses for visiting individuals, family groups and groups of friends. We offer discounts on groups of 4+.

Our study breaks are popular with:

Parents wishing to travel to England with their children to improve their English

Individual students who want to improve their language skills to help their job or career

Older students (retired from work) who have an interest in studying and experiencing English culture

Our study break courses generally take place in the Autumn (October/November/December) and Spring (March/April/May), however, we are flexible so please contact us to discuss how we can arrange a study break in England for you.

 Other specialist courses we offer:
