Private English lessons and immersive experiences in London

Do you need to learn English for work? Or perhaps you are amongst the growing number of over-50’s and 60’s who like to explore new places and enjoy the challenge of learning another language. Whatever the reason, the best way to improve your English is in the company of native English speakers.

At Lingua Holidays, instead of going to school, we come to you. Our teachers meet you in your apartment and either teach you there or out and about exploring the city. And because our English courses are 100% flexible and all lessons are private, you’ll learn quickly.

We plan holidays and courses in discussion with you, and design lessons that are both enjoyable and relevant. So if you have a particular interest or want to improve a specific aspect of your English, we’ll be sure to include that in your programme.

Because we want your trip to London to be a holiday as well as a learning experience, we let you choose how much or little time you spend with your teacher each day. So you may opt for a 2-hour lesson in your apartment on one day, and an immersive full-day programme on another. Maybe you like visiting art galleries or stately homes? Or exploring London’s out-of-the-way streets? We’ll create a personalised itinerary for you, blending private English lessons with activities in London.

English courses in London for over-50’s

Our holidays are particularly suitable for over-50’s who prefer not to learn in school and want the luxury and independence of their own apartment. Our tailor made trips allow you to enjoy a leisurely start to your day before your lesson, and leave plenty of free time if that’s what you want. We’ll also assist you with planning your itinerary and provide plenty of tips on restaurants, places and activities that we think you’ll enjoy.

Suitable for complete beginners to advanced levels.
