The activities and excursions were really interesting. The guide knows so much about history. It's amazing! I loved the opportunity to see different places here in England.

Lake School of English: Home > Courses > General English Courses


The Lake School offers General English courses all year round. Students on General English courses are placed in classes according to their level, so you may join existing classes. Our qualified and experienced teachers make sure this integration is smooth to provide a friendly, positive classroom atmosphere for all students.

Most students choose Intensive General English, this is a full-time course (21 hours per week). In the summer, there are fixed start dates.

Some students take Semi-Intensive General English, this is a part-time course (15 hours per week, mornings only). You can't do this course in July and August.

If you are CEFR B1 level or above and are studying on an Intensive English course, for a minimum of 4 weeks (not in July or August), you may like to prepare for an internationally recognised English language qualification. We prepare students for IELTS and the Cambridge exams.

Courses available on request

We arrange special programmes of tuition for individuals and groups on request at any time during the year. 

Individual tuition can be combined with other courses.

Closed group programmes can include transfers, excursions, accommodation and social activities.
