Situated in the surrounding area of a park in the city centre, our partner school is housed in a beautiful 19th century building. Close to the train station, it is also only a few minutes' walk away from the town centre and the beach. Most of the modern and comfortable classrooms are equipped with PCs and projector facilities. A multimedia centre, a language lab and a library complete the facilities made available in order that you may study in the best conditions. After classes, you will be able to make use of an Internet area (access is free) in the Hawley Club, a bar with a billiards table, table football and televisions as well as a brand-new table tennis area. During the summer, the private garden offers a calm and sunny area for you to relax and meet your numerous new friends.

Meine 2.Sprachreise führte mich diesmal nach Margate, England. Eine englische Küstenstadt, welche im Juli viel zu bieten hat. Besonders begeistert haben mich die Bewohner,sie sind sehr hilfsbereit und freundlich .Meine Unterkunft bei einer englischen Familie war sehr komfortabel und ich wurde sehr herzlich aufgenommen. Die täglichen Unterhaltungen haben mich in meinem Sprachgebrauch sehr gefördert.Die Schule liegt im Stadtzentrum und ist mit dem Bus sehr gut zu erreichen.Die Kosten wurden in meinem Fall von der Schule übernommen. Die Lehrer sind sehr engagiert und stehen einem in allen Belangen zur Seite. Im Unterricht wurde auf meine Fragen und Wünsche eingegangen. Leider waren zu meiner Reisezeit nicht alle Teilnehmer willig engagiert dem Unterricht zu folgen. Das trübte meinen guten Gesamteindruck. Unsere Gastgeberin pflegte mit uns regen Kontakt und förderte sehr mein Sprachverständnis. Ich wurde nach meinen Wünschen gefragt und ich habe mich sehr wohl gefühlt. Tägliches Freizeitangebot, und Ausflüge , auch an den Wochenenden.

Testimonials

Maximilian Kroll
Maximilian Kroll
English in Margate, Margate
Duration: 3 weeks

A warm hello from the island! My language stay takes place on the east cost of England, about 2 hours from London by train. It’s a fascinating place – with a beautiful beach and many pubs where you can relax. But I am here to learn. Teachers at school are really good, they explain everything slowly and precisely. In the morning, we learn the grammar and in the afternoon, we practice our speaking skills. We work in groups and talk about the most varied subjects. It’s not always easy, but very useful and close to real situations. It’s a shame that I can stay only 3 weeks. There’s no better way to learn English than living for a while with native speakers! And the best is to live with a host family. See you! Max

Host family
Staying with a host family will allow you to get maximum benefit out of your stay. This option, chosen by the vast majority of MLC students, allows you to discover the British culture and to practise English daily. All of the families are selected with care by our partner school. The vast majority of the families are situated only a few minutes' walking distance away from the school. A local area bus pass is provided for students who are staying outside the Margate postcode area. You will stay in a single room with half board provided during the week and full board at weekends. All of our host family accommodation has got Wi-Fi available.

Culver House residence
For more independent students, the school offers accommodation in "Culver House", situated only a stone's throw away from the school. This beautiful house was completely renovated in 2005 and offers maximum comfort. Staying in a single or double room - if you are travelling as a couple or with a friend -, you will find a TV and video and a private bathroom. The residence makes a WiFi Internet connection, a kitchen with complete and modern equipment and a garden in a private courtyard available to you. It is important to book this accommodation option in advance because the number of places is limited.

Margate Language Centre makes it a point of honour to develop a rich and varied social life for its students. The Hawley Club, open to both students and teachers, is an ideal place to meet, talk, have fun and relax between classes, during meal breaks, in the afternoons and evenings. To complement the vast choice of sports activities that you will find in Margate, such as bowling, tennis, golf, horse riding, sailing, jet skiing and other water sports, our partner school regularly organises half or full day excursions to enable students to discover or revisit Ramsgate, Brighton, Cambridge, Oxford or London. Staying in Margate also gives you the opportunity to take long walks along the coast, to have a beer at the “Tartar Frigate” in Broadstairs (Charles Dickens’ favourite pub) and listen to a weather-beaten fisherman’s extraordinary tales of the sailors who were his ancestors, in a language imbued with salty sea spray and the great open air.
