General English Language Courses

Our General English courses are our most popular option and will help you improve in all areas of the English Language: grammar, vocabulary, speaking, listening, pronunciation, reading and writing. All our courses also integrate 21st Century Skills into their curriculum.

The minimum age for individuals is 16, but we occasionally accept 15-year-olds in General English international classes if they are part of a group with a group leader. We can accept 14-year-olds only in closed groups with a group leader.

Please note: Students aged under 18 are supervised in lessons and on class excursions only.

Our average class size is 12, with a maximum of 14 except in July and August when General English and Cambridge English Exam Preparation classes may have up to 16 students. Our 14 student limit may be exceeded by a maximum of 1 student for 1 week in exceptional circumstances.

Choosing the right type of accommodation for your stay is really important and we offer a wide variety of homestay, student residences and private accommodation. In addition to our homestay and student residence accommodation, you can also book a serviced hotel room right next to the school at The Justin James. Alternatively, in the summer months, if you're looking for a luxury student residence just outside of Wimbledon and close to the river, there is One Penrhyn Road - our Kingston summer residence.
