A surprising district of the Greater London area, with a history from the Stone Age to modern day heroes, among whom David Bowie is probably the best known, this part of the city is home to the quintessence of the English soul. Dynamism and tradition go hand in hand in Beckenham, an elegant and green suburb in the south-east of the capital, yet only 20 minutes by train to central London. Applying the highest standards in teaching and the choice of its teachers, the school offers high quality courses. The campus has two traditional buildings connected by an ultra-modern cafeteria, opening onto spacious green gardens and serving a wide variety of hot and cold meals and snacks (including halal and vegetarian). There are additional state-of-the-art classrooms in a recently refurbished building 2 minutes walk away. Many classrooms have interactive whiteboards; there are two computer centres for self-study and free Wi-Fi throughout the school. Opposite the school is an award-winning spa and sports centre which offers Kings students discounted rates, as well as a free public library. The school offers a lively programme of lectures and social evenings and most host families are within walking distance. This school is a great option for people who want an authentic experience of London and not just a tourist stay.

Kings éducation possède une excellente équipe pédagogique et disponible pour ses étudiants. Nous sommes très bien accueillis. C’était une expérience inoubliable où j’ai pu découvrir plusieurs cultures lors de mes interclasses.Les cours sont dynamiques et les professeurs à notre écoute. Ma famille était très disponible et accueillante avec moi. À mon écoute à chaque instant. Nous avons pu converser en anglais. Les repas étaient très bons. La chambre et la salle de bain était propre et très agréables.

Kings, South London
Duration: 12 weeks

The reason why I chose Kings London was because I wanted to study and live outside of London but also be near London for visits in my free time. I walked all around London. I visited all kinds of attractions and museums. I like the school because it is small, friendly, nice people and a good mix of nationalities. I like the fact that the host, the shops and the school are in the same area. The course is good for me and they monitor your level well. I love British food and British people! The school was really good, the host was perfect — I choose the Homestay Extra self-catering option. I couldn’t dream better than that! I would recommend Kings 100%. In fact I might book another course with my boyfriend next year at Kings.

Kings, South London
Duration: 27 weeks

I’m following the course “Diploma of English” to improve my language skills for my future job, where I need to relate to people from all over the world. The teachers at Kings are very experienced, they also teach business English and specific courses to improve our conversation skills. The school is located in a beautiful building, the course is not too difficult and I met a lot of new friends. Beckenham is a safe area, it is very easy to get around and I go to Central London twice or three times a week. I recommend everyone to visit the London Eye in the evening! My host family is an elderly lady with a 37-year-old son, they are very nice and friendly and it only takes me 20 minutes on foot to get to school, I usually walk there with another student from Saudi Arabia. This experience abroad is a really good means to meet other students from other countries and to become more independent!

Duration: 6 weeks

I chose Kings because ESL recommended me this school.

What I like about the school is the building, which is new and very bright. The classrooms are really good and the atmosphere is very friendly.

I enjoyed staying with a host family, it is the most amazing thing I've ever done: staying with the family, speaking with them and also trying to understand.

At the beginning, I was put in a class with a level too low for me. But since I moved to a higher group, I’ve really enjoyed the course and my teacher because she's friendly and she does everything she can to make us feel good.

I enjoy my life here in London, it is perfect.

I would definitively recommend Kings because I had an amazing experience and the place is perfect. All Kings' staff members are friendly and they go out of their way to make us feel comfortable.

Thank you for everything!
