The London School of English, Canterbury language school is housed in 2 magnificent Georgian-style buildings, at the heart of the professional district of Canterbury, a few minutes' walk away from the impressive cathedral. In an elegant and calm environment, the course centre make excellent facilities available to you, including 12 bright and spacious classrooms, as well as a well-equipped resource centre. In order to relax and chat with the other participants after your English classes you will also be able to make use of the comfortable lounge and the charming interior garden. The training centre welcomes a maximum of 35 professional participants who follow very intensive English courses, specific to a business background. Personalised attention and a top of the range service make this establishment a favoured place to learn English. You will improve your command of English, particularly spoken (but also written) language in various situations of everyday life and in the more formal setting of your domain of professional activity. Answering the telephone, sending an email, introducing your company, speaking in public, all of this in English, will become child's play! Accessibility, transfers...no problem for this school situated in the middle of Kent. From Heathrow or Gatwick airport, take to train to London, then, from Victoria Station, the South Eastern Trains line will bring you as far as Canterbury (East). Ashford International train station (for the Eurostar) is also only 20 minutes from Canterbury.
