School

The English capital is a mixture of all imaginable cultures. You will find people from working class backgrounds, the underground movement and the Establishment living side by side under the watchful eye of the Crown.
Due to the enormity of the city, London has the largest underground rail network in the world, but if you would prefer to stay out in the fresh air, you can choose to travel by double-decker bus. Always buzzing with activity, London will introduce you in the latest clothing and music trends, and promises you a visit full of energy and vitality.

Close to famous Oxford Street and the Bond Street and Baker Street tube stations, our partner school has all the modern facilities you need to make progress in English. Apart from the 24 bright and spacious classrooms (35 during the high season), students have access to a resource centre with a library, audio and CD-rom material, a computer room with flat-screen computers where they can access the Internet and make use of computerised language-learning methods. The school also has a WiFi network. There is a study centre where students can take university-type courses in Business, Computers, Hotel Management and Tourism, as well as a Job Club.

Accommodation

Host family
Host families, which have been carefully selected by our partner school, generally live around 45-60 minutes away from the school and offer a natural and stimulating environment for practising the language. Students stay in a single room and have half board provided, which is an interesting option considering that it allows you to account for meals for the whole of your stay.

Student house (from 18 years)
This option allows several students from the school to share accommodation during their stay. Each student has his/her own room and shares the common rooms and equipment (kitchen, bathroom, etc.) with the other students. The student houses are located in zone 3 of London, around 40 minutes away from the language school building.

Superior student house (from 18 years)
This high-class student house is ideally located in zone 2, a 30-minute tube journey to the English school and a short bus ride to the famous Camden Town market. The house comprises of 8 single or double very comfortable bedrooms (bedlinen provided), all fitted with their own modern private bathroom. The students from the school will be able to socialise in the kitchen and other common areas of the house, surf the internet thanks to the free Wi-Fi access, or sunbathe in the garden during the summer months.

Leisure

London overflows with leisure possibilities, especially from a cultural point of view. There are a large variety of monuments, museums, galleries and shows on offer, the most classic mixing with the most extravagant. Sports lovers will also have plenty to keep them busy in the numerous sports centres found in town and in the suburbs. The school organises activities and outings of the sort that will create a dynamic group atmosphere outside of the classroom, thereby allowing students to practise their English in an authentic context.

Testimonial

Hanna Samuelson British Study Centres has a good location in the middle of central London and I like the accent people have here and their pub culture. The school staff is very helpful and when I injured my foot one day at the school they even paid for the cab that took me to the hospital. I think the classes are very good, we talk a lot to each other, but it also would have been nice to write a bit more. I aim at learning as many new words as possible and start to communicate more in English. I also would like to attend a Cambridge course in the near future. I found my London accommodation on the web. I'm also pleased with the service I received from ESL, who rapidly helped me with my booking and the contact with CSN. After finishing my course I got a job in a Sport shop in London!
