Language courses in Brighton, England for kids and teenagers

BrightonLearning English in Brighton is a great opportunity to combine learning English with the joy of spending time with kids and young people from all over the world. The city of Brighton is located on the south coast of England. It is a beautiful city with a lot going on, hence the city’s nickname: ‘London by the sea.’ During the summer, it is nice and warm here, but that is not the only reason locals and visitors appreciate the sea and the long beach. Youngsters love being close to the water and they are never short of things to do here in Brighton: you can go swimming in the sea, play on the beach, go on the Brighton Pier Carousel, or just simply relax. The surrounding area of Brighton has many excursion possibilities.

You can go to Arundel Castle, a historical building that dates all the way back to the Middle Ages, or you can go to the City of Portsmouth’s Spinnaker Tower. This is a 170-metre-high tower that offers breathtaking views of the Isle of Wight.

The English language school in Brighton for juniors offers an optimal combination of interesting classes and age-appropriate activities. The English school campus gives youngsters a real insight into typical English university life. This campus also has halls of residence which are directly next to the language school. Those who prefer to do so can also stay with a host family in Brighton, which is an excellent way of becoming familiar with the everyday life of English people. There are many recreational activities to choose from, e.g. you can participate in sports and games or you can join school parties, movie nights, and excursions, which creates an unforgettable language journey and holiday for every participant in Brighton.

Our students in Brighton have the opportunity to stay with carefully selected host families who already have a great deal of experience in the supervision of international language students. The language school is located in the city centre of Brighton.

The neighborhoods where the host families live often have the charm of small English villages but belong geographically to the town of Brighton. All of the homes have easy access to the bus network; therefore all students are able to get to and from school easily. The average travel time between school and accommodation is about 40 minutes. It takes the language course participants about 20-30 minutes to get into the town centre. The bus pass for public transport is not included in the price and costs about 25,- £/week. 

At their host family, the students share a room with another student of the same sex. Bed linen is provided; towels however, must be brought by the students. Once a week, the bed linen and towels can be washed. The bathroom is shared with the host family and each student is provided with his or her own work place where they can do their homework. Additionally, the young guests are also welcome in the family’s living room.
