At North Devon School of English we offer various specialised language courses, with English courses which are aimed at older teenagers, university and adult student groups.

These courses consist of content that is vocational, with the language and the content of our English classes customised to fit the programme. Our Eco, Media and Business English courses include a project and presentation element, encouraging practical language skills.

In addition to classes with North Devon School of English language teachers, our specialised courses include guest speakers, professionals with a relevant background in the media, business and ecological sectors.

The combination of specialised English classes and interaction with native speakers working in these sectors provides a unique learning experience that is challenging but rewarding.



We offer Business English courses for groups (from the same company or profession) and can also offer one to one tuition. We will arrange accommodation in a hotel or home stay so that you can practice with native English speakers out of class.

We focus on speaking, listening, and writing English for the business world. We know that every business is different and so every course is made to fit your needs.

In addition to English classes there are workshop sessions run by eco experts that include some ‘hands on’ activities, as well as excursions that are based around sites of environmental interest.

Themes explored in the Eco English course include sustainable living, alternative energy and eco agricultural techniques such as permaculture.
