Summer Vacation courses in Brighton and Eastbourne

Summer Vacation English Courses in Brighton, Chester and Eastbourne

Summer is a great time to study English in England. Days are long and the weather is good (well, a lot of the time). And where better to take a summer English course in England than by the seaside. Our schools in Brighton and Eastbourne are both just a few minutes' walk from the beach so you can take a walk and breath of fresh sea air during your breaks or after lessons. Taking a summer course in England will also afford you the opportunity to make international friends from all over the world.

In addition to the General English and examination courses that we run all year round at both schools, we also offer options for young adults and teeangers from June to August.
