The English School at the Chelsea Centre

London, United Kingdom



School Introduction

Established in 1985, The English School at the Chelsea Centre is a small, very welcoming English School for adults. Classes are never more than 16 students, and our experienced teachers are all fully qualified native speakers. There is a good social atmosphere, with programmes for students, and a wide variety of nationalities.

You can find us on the famous King's Road in Chelsea, Central London, and with good connections to the lively West End. Many students live with local hosts.

ESL Program Introduction

Courses are 15 hours per week, 09:30 to 12:30, Monday to Friday, and students are expected to attend at least 80% for full benefit.
We mainly teach General English with emphasis on communication skills - practising speaking, listening, reading and writing for effective usage - as well as straightforward grammar and structure.
We also prepare students to take the full range of English examinations from Cambridge University, from KET (Pre-Intermediate) up to CPE (Proficiency) and can also offer preparation for the Cambridge IELTS examination.

Extra classes and individual tuition can be arranged in the afternoons, especially for specialist language needs. Outside tuition (eg, in the student's own home/hotel) can also be arranged, subject to teachers' availability.

All lessons are in British English, but students will also be made aware of differences in respect of American English.

Social programmes are also available, including tours outside London at low cost.
Lesson programmes frequently include guided visits to places of interest, theatre trips, etc.
