Course Description


Learn English in the company of like-minded people from around the world on this highly popular course!

Designed for adults of all nationalities and abilities, this lively and imaginative programme focuses on speaking, listening, reading and writing to help you communicate confidently and fluently in everyday English. Lessons are interactive and structured to allow maximum time to learn and practise new vocabulary, colloquial English, idioms and grammar. The main emphasis is on developing your confidence and fluency to communicate outside the classroom.

We co-operate with another British Council accredited school, The English for adult courses during the summers to ensure a good mix of ages and nationalities. Your classes will be held at Loxdale English Centre and ELC will look after your academic and the adult social programme.

Our maximum class size is just 12 students, which means you will receive personal attention from your teacher at all times.

At the end of the course you will receive an attractive certificate showing your level of achievement. Hang it on the wall. Show your family and friends. You’ve earned it!  




English Through

Loxdale’s unique teaching programme offers you the chance to personalise your learning experience. As part of the course you will learn English through a different subject for two lessons per week. This is called “English Through” and you can choose from subjects such as exam preparation, history, film, art appreciation, business English, creative writing, music appreciation and writing a children’s book.

Loxdale Lecture Series

As part of our commitment to make study time as stimulating and enlightening as possible, our students enjoy a weekly lecture on a Tuesday morning which focuses on various aspects of British life. Popular past lectures have included Homelessness, Things to do in London, British History, HIV and the Terence Higgins Trust, Presentation Techniques, Brighton Music Scene, London Architecture, Street Art, Acupuncture and Nutrition.

 30 Minute Talks

Each Monday afternoon you will be able to enjoy a 30 Minute Talk. These lively and interesting talks explore topics such as Stonehenge, London Museums, Brighton Music Venues, St Georges Day, Guy Fawkes, Cambridge, The South Downs and Christmas in Victorian England.
