Founded in 1955, our partner school St. Giles is situated in the heart of London, and has solid experience in teaching English to executives and professionals. The St Giles International group is one of the largest and most prestigious English language training organisations in the United Kingdom. This "executive" course centre distinguishes itself thanks to its high-quality teaching, its small class sizes and its modern facilities, perfectly adapted to the requirements of executives and professionals. The school is housed in an elegant historic building in the Bloomsbury district, and is easily accessible from Russell Square, Holborn or Tottenham Court Road tube stations. You will study English in the very centre of the city, a stone’s throw from the famous British Museum and the green lanes of Lincoln's Inn Fields, London’s "Central Park". It’ll be difficult to find better!

Gick Platinum--kurs tillsammans med en person till samtidigt som barnen gick Family course. Väldigt bra. Flexibelt, duktig lärare Svårt sätta betyg på barnens i och med att man inte såg så mycket, men det vi såg var bra. Lärarna bra på att ge återkoppling och väldigt trevliga. Barnen tyckte det var nyttigt och kul. Gott betyg :) Boende i väldigt trevligt område, mycket vänlig familj som tog hand om oss på ett bra sätt. Fina frukostar. Ordnade med lunchpaket (sannolikt pga allergirisk i skolan).

« Personnellement, pour mon niveau trois semaines ne sont pas suffisant, cependant durant ce séjour, j'ai pu me faire l'oreille, j'arrive maintenant à entendre la plus part des mots dans une phrase et du coup d'en comprendre le sens.Pour l'expression orale, je suis un peu plus à l'aise mais le manque de vocabulaire m'handicape.De manière générale, le séjour a été bénéfique pour mon anglais. »
