About Us

About Us

Together we are a collection of four high quality and long-standing English language schools located in great cities across the UK: Hampstead School of English (London), Manchester Academy of English, English Language Centre York, and Edinburgh Language Centre.

Our philosophy is simple:

We offer a style of language learning that extends far beyond the classroom and immerses you in the history, culture and life of your destination. 

We want you to have a fully immersive and unforgettable experience, and to help make this happen we base everything we do on three key principles that we believe will make your time with us the best it can be:

Immersive Activities: So you can make the most of your destination, our staff and teachers run exciting social activities that provide the perfect opportunity to become more fluent in the English language, to discover the best of your city, and to create new friendships.

Innovative Learning: We know that if you want to study English well, the journey of learning is as important as the final result. That’s why our teams are always creating innovative, interesting and challenging ways to help you remember what you’ve learnt.

Authentic Locations: We think that the only way you can truly learn a language is to immerse yourself in the culture of the location you are in. Our schools and cities offer exactly this: a genuine taste of the place and its people.                                                                                                                                      

Ultimately, we believe that studying English in the UK will open up your world through a life changing experience. But we know you need to see it to believe it! So we asked our students to share their experiences, and this is what they wanted to show you.
