Five minutes’ walk from the world famous cathedral, the training centre is an oasis of calm ideally suited to focused study, with its own garden and coffee lounge for moments of relaxation. Close to the main shopping streets, the vibrant surrounding area offers cafes, restaurants, pubs and tourist attractions as well as quieter parks and green spaces.

Our clients

The family-like relationship we build with you, our clients, is what makes the centre so special and to ensure this we put a limit of no more than 35 participants per week. Our intimate environment includes both stimulating multinational diversity and the shared interests of mature professional people. We use this environment and our longstanding expertise to help you achieve demanding but focused training objectives - in our small groups or through individual training - that will help you become a more effective communicator in English. Clients are often sad to leave Canterbury but always satisfied with the progress they have made.

Your experience

The Canterbury experience is often described by clients as ‘perfect’ and ‘very special’. This is because you participate in a genuinely effective and varied full-immersion environment that maximises your contact with English: during meals with your host family; during training; and during coffee breaks, lunch and social programme activities with other participants and staff. Our careful attention to detail ensures you have a smooth and enjoyable stay: executive accommodation options; an inclusive taxi service; thoughtfully selected social programme options; and individual interviews to have feedback from you and to discuss your progress. Join us for a unique experience.
