About Bournemouth

Bournemouth is located on the southern coast of England and enjoys a mild climate. With seven miles of golden sands and sparkling sea, only a short walk from the school, this vibrant cosmopolitan town has it all. Bournemouth is famous for its entertainment venues, educational and sports facilities, and its restful atmosphere. Founded in 1800, the town has grown into a resort which is characterised by its wide, tree-lined avenues and pedestrian areas. Victorian architecture is complemented by beautiful gardens, modern stores, cafes, and eateries. Visitors are sure to enjoy loads of memorable experiences.

The Course

Our English language courses have a workload of 15 hours per week over 20 lessons of 45 minutes each. All our courses include language skills development, project work and a hands on approach which aims at preparing students for educational trips and outings. We also encourage our learners to put the new language they learned into practice by engaging in creative tasks and facing real life situations with confidence. 


During our English language courses students will attend 4 45-minute lessons everyday (20 lessons per week). The duration of each lesson allows students to keep focused and motivated as they switch from new language input to practice and production with all members of their host family. Lessons are planned so that students have the opportunity to interact with their host family and community in order to naturally improve their English. All our host teachers hold a certificate or diploma from University of Cambridge, which guarantees ​the quality of our academic programme. The use of music, arts and technology play a great role in the curriculum designed by our in-school academic team.  

Students will do a level test and have a quick chat with our academic team before they are placed in a group of students of the same age and level.


Our levels follow the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference) and are organised as follows:









Upper Intermediate





Staying with a family is probably the best way to practise your English and learn more about the British way of life. Bournemouth is a city of many cultures and this is reflected in the homestays we use. Families are carefully selected for their friendliness, cleanliness and access to and from the school. Host family homes are regularly inspected and most of our families are located within 20-45 minutes away from the beach and town centre. The family will provide all the necessary assistance. Services included:

  • Single room 

  • Shared bathroom

  • Full board (breakfast, pack lunch and dinner)

  • Laundry, sheets and towels provided by the family
