English in London

Age 15-18

Get an international experience on your language trip together with students from around the world when you visit the incredible city of London.

Classic English course

On your language trip to London, you’ll take STS’s classic English course. Lessons are the perfect mix of exercises and tests, designed to improve your reading and writing comprehension, as well as pronunciation and vocabulary. Individual assignments are broken up with group projects, giving you the chance to develop your skills in a number of areas. You’ll notice how much you’ve progressed even after just a few days, especially in terms of pronunciation and conversation flow, as well as your increased self-confidence in everyday conversations.

All of your teachers are CELTA certified and have lots of professional experience. All course materials are included, and you’ll receive an STS diploma upon completion of the course. Our language courses in the UK are given through our partner, EC English. EC English has over 50 years of experience and is accredited by the British Council.
