English Language Courses


I give courses throughout the year for different groups of teachers and learners in the beautiful villages of Shipton-Under-Wychwood and Burford in the heart of the Cotswolds, one of the most beautiful areas of countryside in England. 

Enjoy the conference facilities of The Bay Tree in Burford, a wonderful hotel dating back to the 16th century, or at The Shaven Crown, a historic hotel dating from 1483.

Practise using English the whole day with your tutor as your guide, and explore the beauty of the Cotswolds. 

Visit beautiful villages, ancient houses, historic castles, and admire wonderful views. Visit nearby Oxford (20 minutes), Cheltenham (20 minutes), and Stratford-Upon-Avon (45 minutes). Trains to London are just 76 minutes.

Bed and Breakfast accommodation in the village is around £50 per night, or you can choose to stay in a local hotel:
Accommodation in and around Shipton-Under-Wychwood



 Alternatively, the course can run in Stratford-Upon-Avon, the historic and beautiful town of William Shakespeare.  The venue is The Shakespeare Hotel in the heart of the centre next to the school that Shakespeare attended.  Accommodation is £70 per night.  It is an ideal location for visiting the 5 houses connected to Shakespeare, exploring the beauty of the Warwickshire countryside, and seeing world-class performances of plays by Shakespeare and his contemporaries at The Royal Shakespeare Theatre.
