With over 100 years’ experience and a wide range of courses to suit almost every need, we have helped many thousands of people to improve their English. We aim to give you relevant skills that can be applied immediately, so our English courses are intensive and practical, and our clients are motivated adults (20+).

Our Holland Park Gardens centre in London offers Professional and General English courses for adult clients aged 20 or 25+ (average age 38), as well as Academic English courses for adults aged 20+. The centre is in an elegant, residential area a short distance from Central London. All courses are tailored to meet the needs and interests of the course participants.

Our school achieved a perfect score in our recent British Council inspection, so quality is assured. The London School of English also ranks as one of the best value for money schools in London for General English courses according to EL Gazette, a leading publisher in the English Language Teaching industry. Our course prices include online learning, end of course reports, course materials and more. Our 'hour' lessons are 60 minutes long and this gives clients more time with their trainer to help them to make progress towards their learning objectives quickly.

Holland Park Gardens

The Holland Park Gardens centre is in Holland Park; an ideal location in which to relax and focus on your English and only 15 minutes from the city centre. The area is full of independent shops and restaurants and the school is just a 10-minute walk from Notting Hill and from Westfield, the largest shopping centre in Europe.

The centre provides a friendly and supportive atmosphere with popular homestay and residential accommodation close to the school and a lively social programme. On our evening social programme, you can discover new places and continue to improve your English in a relaxed and enjoyable environment.
