BEET Language Centre

BEET is a student-centred, family-run school, with over 40 years of experience. Our aim is to achieve the highest standards in an atmosphere of warmth and friendliness. We are situated in the beautiful, award-winning seaside town of Bournemouth

A school motivated by quality, we pride ourselves on the level of care and attention our students receive. We have an average of 180 students from between 20 & 40 countries; our size enables us to provide a properly structured learning programme with the individual attention students need.

Not only do we benefit from all of the latest classroom technology, we're also lucky enough to have the most highly-qualified and motivated teachers. Although we place great importance on learning, we also believe that life outside of the classroom is key - we therefore offer a full and varied social programme 5-nights a week, as well as teacher led excursions most Saturdays.

BEET is situated in a residential area which means all students live within easy walking distance of the school; this is ideal when returning to the school for evening activities.

The atmosphere is unique and is often cited as one of the things that makes us extremely special; this feeling is shared by staff and students alike.

“BEET reconciles a great deal of advantages in a single school: competence of its teachers, charming and friendly staff, intensity of the classes and permanent offer of social and cultural activities. We feel part of a family and this is the reason why we always want to come back!”
