The London School of English is the longest-established officially accredited school in Britain. Founded in 1912, we have unrivalled experience.
We are of medium size: small enough to provide a personal service, but large enough to have excellent facilities and resources.
We have two campuses close to the centre of London, each offering a variety of courses designed for serious adults. Click here to see our range of courses.
We have excellent teachers, but we know that a good school is about much more than the course itself. We offer a full range of services designed to make your experience with us useful, stimulating and fun from the moment you start to plan until after you get home.

All of our training rooms are fitted with flat screens for teaching and project work. Students also have access to computers and language practice facilities as well as free wifi and free photocopying.
Both campuses have a restaurant or student lounge where students can have a hot lunch, or salads, if they choose.

During my two weeks at the London School I had a fantastic time which I will probably never forget. Where do you have the opportunity to learn English with other students from all over the world, to make new friends from other countries and continents? We were sitting all in the same boat, we all wanted to learn English. We spent a lot of time in- and outside the school and it was really great. The London School is excellent for this. The language trip was very well organised from A to Z and the employees of the school stood to us any time helpfully aside. The teachers were excellent, with excellent teaching methods. Also the One-to-one units in the afternoon were very helpful for me. All in all, it was a fantastic time at the London School and I can recommend it very much, any time again!

"I enjoyed my stay at the London School of English (LSE) and feel that my objectives were fully achieved. There are lots of aspects which are really done well. The diversified teaching methods, the competent and friendly trainers, and the great support and help regarding other services. I have especially appreciated the great help concerning arranging an internship. By offering general English as well as Business English courses, the LSE covers a wide range of language courses. Ist special strength is in improving your communication skills in various ways: discussion, meetings, presentations and so on. I would recommend the school to everyone who wants to polish his/her language ability in both counts - the business and general English skills. Thanks for all LSE."
