Learn English in Cambridge
Cambridge is the county town of Cambridgeshire, East England and only a short train ride away from London. Going there on a language trip not only provides our participants with language lessons at a superb language school, but also a real British experience and a great way to enjoy the British culture.

Please be aware that the residence and flat share options are always very popular and we therefore recommend you book a few months before your expected language trip starts. We will get back to you as soon as possible regarding availability.

The language school also offers single and double bedrooms in the school’s own flat share. This offers the students a similar experience as the residence, but slightly simpler.
There is plenty to explore in the beautiful university city of Cambridge and its surroundings. In order to have time to get to know the city better and delve into the English culture and daily life, the language school offers various excursions and activities or helps you organise your free time. A must is of course to go punting on the River Cam.
