There's more to Wimbledon than just tennis! It's one of London’s safest and wealthiest districts with theatres, cinemas, shopping, sports centres, hundreds of cafés, restaurants and bars and great public transport... central London is only 20 minutes away! The school is located in the centre of Wimbledon, 5 minutes from the station, shops and amenities, and 10 minutes from the Village and its tennis courts. Established in 1964, the school welcomes students in a lovely, typically English building with a large garden.

La scuola è veramente molto accogliente e pulita! La sua ubicazione è perfetta in quanto si trova a soli 5 min dal centro di Wimbledon. I docenti sono bravissimi, simpatici e molto disponibili.Ho trovato le lezioni sempre interessanti e variate.Il mix di culture diverse nella classe mi ha permesso di scoprire le particolarità di ogni paese e di confrontarmi con i miei compagni sulle curiosità più stravaganti :) L’ atmosfera era molto serena! Le gite erano ben organizzate, variate e molto divertenti!!

Testimonials

As I need English to enter the Lausanne catering college, I decided to do a language stay. I chose the Wimbledon School of English because, even if it is a small town in a big city, I was looking for a place with fewer distractions. Indeed, I am preparing for the Advanced diploma and that takes a lot of personal work. I have lessons every day in the morning and twice a week in the afternoon. I still do sports and I went to a few excursions with the school as it offers attractive prices! I live in a shared apartment, we are 6 and we share 2 bathrooms. The good thing is that it only takes 15 minutes by bus to go to the school!

I like Wimbledon very much because it’s not as hectic as central London. Nevertheless you can find many things here like cafés, pubs, bars, cinemas, theatres and a big shopping centre. When you want to go to the city you can get there in about 20 minutes. I think the school is very good and the teachers are professional. When it’s good weather you can eat lunch in the lovely garden of the school. It’s really nice here.

"Who is tired of life, is tired of London”. At the time, I had already heard this sentence several times but I understand its true meaning only now. A city where there are so many things to discover and see. In addition to the traditional tourist attractions, London offers a wide variety of musicals, theatres, concerts and other shows like no other city in the world. The Wimbledon School of English, where I spent 13 weeks, was a great school. The teachers were well trained and able to convey the course content in a light way and to give us individual support. I made a lot of progress. Besides, I met people from the whole world, which allowed me to develop extraordinary friendships. It was the best period of my life and I am looking forward to going back to this city where nothing seems impossible. Thank you, ESL!
