Our General English courses provide a great opportunity to study English while living in the UK. If you are someone who wants to stay in the UK and experience it like a short holiday, then you can study for the short-term at one of our centres. We also offer more weeks for those who would like to stay longer.

You can choose to learn English in the busy cities of London and Dublin, or at our English centre in the relaxing seaside town of Eastbourne. Our General English course is aimed at increasing your confidence in using the language on a daily basis so that you are comfortable in an English-speaking environment, whether this is socially, for work, for travel or for study.
