The western part of Central London is known as the best part of the city to live in. The houses are larger, the streets are greener and the boutiques are just a little fancier than elsewhere. Take an English course in West London and enjoy this fascinating part of London, just twenty minutes from the city centre.

Our partner school benefits from an excellent reputation and long-standing experience in teaching. It is, in fact, the oldest accredited English school in the whole world. You will learn the language of Shakespeare here in a welcoming, comfortable and motivating setting. The course centre is located 20 minutes away from the city centre in a nice residential district of West London, between Hammersmith and Chiswick. The school is housed in a building with a modern and contemporary design and consists of 14 classrooms, a student room equipped with a TV, a multimedia centre with computers and a free Internet connection, a language lab and a bookshop. In addition, there is a WiFi connection available throughout the building and a cafeteria is available to students for a small snack or for lunch. The London School of English training centre also has another course centre (Holland Park), specialised in the English courses for executives and professionals.

Please note : all courses include a daily three-course lunch, freshly prepared by our team of chefs using locally-sourced ingredients wherever possible.

Excelencia, así es como puedo definir a esta Escuela. Escoger The London School of English ha sido la mejor decisión. Ha superado con creces las expectativas que tenía cuando tomé la decisión de contratar sus servicios. Es una escuela excelente, por sus profesores, por sus servicios, por su continua motivación, por su ambiente internacional y por ello, la recomiendo sin lugar a dudas. He mejorado considerablemente mi nivel de inglés durante estos tres meses y a la vez he disfrutado muchísimo de todo lo que ofrece una ciudad como Londres. Ha sido una grandísima experiencia personal!. Excelente el Social Programme de la escuela. Los profesores muy implicados. La oferta es inmensa en Londres , por lo que estas siempre muy activo.

Testimonials

Aurelia Schmitt
Aurelia Schmitt

I decided to go to London because of its diverse and fascinating lifestyle. It didn’t disappoint me! Every day, London offers something new: a good exhibition, a market, a street party and a bustling nightlife. I was never bored. The London School of English is an amazing, high-quality school, with lovely and helpful professors. The course prepared me very well for my Cambridge exam and the teachers attached great importance to the individual development of each student. The afternoon programme was also very good: a pub night, a football match… In this school, I didn’t find only teachers and students – I found a real community.

Host family
A very good network of host families is proposed by our partner school, London School of English. Many of them live within walking distance of the course centre (zone 2), in the residential district of Chiswick, and others can be reached by bus or by metro (zone 3). You will stay in a single room with breakfast or half board included.
Sharing in the daily life of Londoners will be very enriching on both a linguistic and cultural level! A plus: For those who will bring their laptop, the school will be able to place you with a family who have a WiFi connection, according to availability

Prince Consort Village residence
Surrounded by numerous shops, restaurants and pubs, this brand new residence will seduce you with its comfortable and chic touch. You will stay in a private studio with a desk, a private bathroom, Wi-Fi and a fully equipped kitchen. Socialize in English with the other students in the social space, the game room, the gym or outside in one of the courtyards. Upon arrival, you will find bed linen and towels at your disposal, and you will be able to use the laundry with charge. You will be a 15-minute walk away from the London School of English.

Apartment, hotel
Prices and information on request.

It would obviously be superfluous to list out everything you will be able to undertake in London. It is a bustling city where you will spend a colourful language study stay. The school organises cinema or theatre evenings, walks which will allow you to discover the capital and its treasures (Buckingham Palace, Royal Botanic Gardens, museums and monuments). During the weekends, you can visit numerous places of interest like, for example, Leeds Castle, Rochester, Oxford or Stratford (birthplace of Shakespeare). If you wish to discover the surroundings of London independently, the school will help you in the organisation of your weekend.
