English courses for adults in Sidmouth: Min. Age 18+

Do you want to improve your English in a quaint little English seaside town? Then Sidmouth is the place for you!

Our partner school has a variety of adult English courses across six different levels, and complete beginner courses can also be arranged especially where needed. Even in the unlikely case that we can’t find a class to suit your level, the school will happily arrange one-to-one lessons for the same price, only with reduced teaching hours - flexibility and student satisfaction are key!

At this school, students benefit from learning in small classes of just six students (9 in summer) maximising teacher-student contact. The courses follow a syllabus that combines vocabulary and grammar with practical day-to-day English usage, helping students to develop their language skills in a well-rounded way. The courses also go beyond pragmatic language lessons, however, as students will also develop a better understanding of English culture and British life. So grab a mug, put the kettle on and have your tea bags at the ready!

Why should I choose Sidmouth over other locations?

Students choose Sidmouth over other destinations thanks to its picturesque seaside location as well as its secure and tranquil environment that facilitates language study. While it might be safe and calm, you’re never lost for things to do in Sidmouth; the city of Exeter is just a 15 minute drive away and its south-westerly location means that it enjoys the most temperate climate you’ll find in England, meaning you can get in the water for a surf, a stand-up paddle or a swim.

And what's more, there’s a FREE activity programme included in the course price!

That’s not all however, students at this school enjoy a whole host of free additional extras included in the course price:

  • FREE basic social programme
  • FREE SIS coach transfer to/from Heathrow Airport every Saturday
  • FREE accommodation booking service
  • FREE use of student internet
  • FREE Book Club (not available in summer)

So don’t hesitate, book your language course today and enjoy the beauty of England’s southwest!
