In extreme and rare circumstances the stated maximum class might be exceeded. If this does happen, it will be only by one person for a very limited period.

We accept beginners on our courses by prior arrangement. If you are a beginner please contact us for available start dates. If we determine that you are at beginner level after your arrival, we reserve the right to offer you the equivalent number of private lessons at no additional cost. Our courses are primarily for students aged 18 and older. While we welcome students aged 17, please note we cannot provide 24 hour supervision.

Timothe was nervous when he arrived at the school and was unsure about making friends with the other students. We specifically placed Timothe in quite an active homestay to ensure that he would get the most from his stay in Swansea. On Timothes first day at the school, we could see that he was a worrier. Our staff at the school nurtured him and introduced him to other students. After two weeks, Timothes confidence was starting to show. After helping Timothe for two months and giving him extra homework as requested, Timothe was ready for his IELTS test. We received his results just before Christmas. It was wonderful to discover that Timothe had scored a 5.5 in his IELTS test and could therefore begin his specialist studies. </p><p>LEVELS AVAILABLE </p></li><li><p> +44 (0)1792 459615 | 15 </p><p>Public Holidays (School is closed) </p><p>There are no lessons on Saturdays or Sundays. 02 Jan*, 14 Apr, 17 Apr* (Easter Holidays) 01 May*, 29 May*, 28 Aug* , 16 Dec 2017 07 Jan 2018 (Christmas Holidays) </p><p>Minimum enrolment age 17 </p><p>Maximum class size 15** </p><p>Start date Any Monday (Start of the new term is preferred.
