"Come with high expectations, we'll exceed them". The motto of our partner school already says a lot about the seriousness of the academic programmes offered at 15, Holland Park Gardens. Founded in 1912, the London School of English (LSE) is one of the oldest English schools in England and has lengthy experience in teaching for professionals. The numerous programmes proposed include as much specific courses for young professionals, as English courses for executives or for specific sectors of activity (Legal English, English for HR, etc.) Whether you are just starting out in your career or you are at the peak of your career, the dynamism and know-how of the teachers at LSE will be fully put to use in order to increase, in a minimum amount of time, your ability to communicate in English in the specific context of your profession, but also in the less informal setting of daily discussions. In this respect, the school’s restaurant will become the essential meeting place if you wish to meet people and share favourable moments with your study companions. Whether a Japanese engineer, a German lawyer, a Brazilian architect, a Russian entrepreneur or a Swiss businessman…LSE distinguishes itself by its nationality mix and the chill-out atmosphere of the buffet lunch break favours the sharing of interdisciplinary knowledge and exchanges of business cards of people from all backgrounds.

Please note : all courses include a daily three-course lunch, freshly prepared by our team of chefs using locally-sourced ingredients wherever possible.

Excellente et enrichissante expérience avec un stage linguistique à Londres. The London School of English est parfaite à tous points de vues. Des professeurs de qualité et disponible, une excellente atmosphère et ambiance entre les étudiants et professeurs, des cours adaptés à chacun, un programme social riche et varié, des locaux parfaitement adaptés et une cuisine excellente. - très belle chambre, spacieuse et lumineuse- les parties "communes" de la résidence sont très agréables- possibilité d'amélioration : un peu plus de vaisselles et mise à disposition de produits de nettoyage de base- au niveau du trajet, la ligne de bus 94 s'arrête devant l'immeuble et en 15 minutes, sans changement de bus, on peut se rendre à l'école. L'arrêt est à 3 minutes de l'écoles.Je recommande cette résidence, par contre, aucun contact avec les autres résidants.A noter que des activités étaient organisées dans la résidence mais je n'y ai pas pris part.
