If English is not your main language, come and improve your language skills at our English Summer School taking place in July at our Chelsea Centre.

This year our English Summer School includes 2 intensive courses, each course running for 2 weeks (1st half and 2nd half of July respectively).

Classes are every day, Monday to Friday, 10am to 1pm, for 2 weeks (or 4 weeks if you wish to take both courses).

The Summer School is aimed at Intermediate & Upper-Intermediate levels, with a strong emphasis on Speaking skills.
