FAMILY LONDON : Juniors 5-17 years : Adults 18+

Study English in London this summer on our non-residential half day courses in Kensington

Our Family Programme is held in one building in Kensington so that parents and children can share and enjoy a language learning experience together. Many families come back year after year. Parents who are not studying with us accompany their children to Collingham and collect them after class.

Courses start each Monday from late June to early August. Adults, teenagers and children have separate classes either from 09:00-12:30h or 13:30-17:00h Monday to Friday for between 1 and 7 weeks. It is not possible to study both mornings and afternoons.

Written placement tests are carried out on-line before arrival. An end-of-course report, Discovery Summer certificate and class photo are presented when you leave.

26 June - 11 August 2017 (1 - 7 weeks)


The college, Collingham, is in an impressive building on six floors, 5 minutes' walk from Gloucester Road and Earl's Court Underground stations. It is in a safe residential area.

WiFi available.
