"At the end of our language program My London, you'll be able to call London truly yours"

These guided tours offer students not just a first-hand insight into the modern British culture and lifestyle, but also an opportunity to practice their English in real life situations. Weekends will see you explore British heritage, even further by visiting the scholarly Oxford and Cambridge, or eating fish-n-chips and ice cream on sunny Brighton beach.

The power of English is further being unlocked in the afternoons with the structured English lessons taught in small, international classes. The communicative approach means that students focus on building greater fluency and the confidence in using the language. The facilities include interactive whiteboards, digital language laboratories and use of real-life materials to keep students motivated.

At the end of this exciting trip, you will have understood more clearly why the British drive on the left, why the Prime Meridian runs through Greenwich and why La Manche is called the English Channel. At the end of our language program My London, you’ll be able to call London truly yours.
