I can do that here at The English Studio. The school has a central location in London but the most important thing at The English Studio is the teachers who help me to improve my English. Carlos | BRAZIL This is my second time in London to study English, and I can say that The English Studio goes above my expectations, the teachers are great, but what I like most was the warm welcome on the first day.
At The English Studio we aim to go above and beyond for our students offering academic excellence in our English courses and an exceptional student experience on their learning journey.
But don’t just take our word for it, here’s what some of our students have to say: Testimonials Baha | TUNISIA I was torn between studying in the USA and Ireland but ultimately, I decided to come to Ireland. I still had reservations but when I arrived I was pleasantly surprised with Dublin. I could not believe how multi-cultural and cosmopolitan the city is. I started in Elementary. I didn’t have much English at all but after six months of focus and working hard on my language, I am in upper intermediate. Ruggero | ITALY I first came here two years ago on a summer programme. I am 21 years old now and I wanted to come back so much to enjoy Dublin as an adult especially the pubs, nightlife and Guinness because I couldn’t enjoy that before.
7 www.englishstudio.com | Cristina | SPAIN One thing I like about studying at The English Studio is it’s great location. It allows me to go anywhere in London within a short time. I also like getting to meet people from different countries while learning English. And finally, the teachers are really helpful and make sure the classes are lots of fun. Muhaned | SAUDI ARABIA This course is great, I really enjoy the time learning more of the English Language with my teachers at The English Studio. Their classes are amazing. They make class fun by giving us one day grammar and the next day listening, so we mix it up and learn a lot in class.
Abdullah | SAUDI ARABIA I have been studying English at The English Studio for the last 9 months. I have become regularly involved in the school’s social programme and extra activities. I love my class and my teachers. I have really enjoyed my experience in the college and in Dublin in general and I would recommend it to anyone. It is a great thing to do. Alexandra | RUSSIA It is the third year in a row that I have come to London to study at The English Studio. It gives me a great opportunity not only to study English but meet people from all over the world. The atmosphere in the classrooms is always positive and friendly and the teachers are great and willing to help which makes it impossible to not make progress.
Anna | RUSSIA I am 23 and was working in pharmaceuticals in Moscow. I need English for my job because my company uses English every day. I’m speechless. I had no expectations of Ireland. I didn’t think it would be so modern, but it feels like a friendly village.

Mike Mooney | DEPUTY ACADEMIC DIRECTOR. THE ENGLISH STUDIO LONDON At The English Studio, it’s the little things that make all the difference. While the most important part of a student’s course is their English classes and learning, we think they deserve even more. That’s why we’ve added a few little add-ons. Available outside timetabled classes, we think these extras add up to make our students’ experience extraordinary. At The English Studio, our focus on the culture, experience and student journey helps us stand out from the crowd going further to make sure that our students feel part of our family and experience the best of these incredible cities.
We understand that coming to a new country to learn English is very exciting, but sometimes may seem a little daunting, that’s why we’re here to help students with everything they may need to settle in.
Whether it’s advice on health issues, places of worship, opening a bank account or just the best options for a night out, our staff are extremely knowledgeable and experienced. STUDENT WELFARE Our schools have nominated welfare and safeguarding team members on hand to support every student. We want to ensure students feel at home and comfortable as quickly as possible; that way they can make the most of their experience with us right from day one. Learning support is available as well as multilingual pastoral care for those who need these services. Student wellbeing is vital to each and every member of our team because when you choose The English Studio, you become part of our family.

Paola | COLOMBIA Thank you to The English Studio for this amazing opportunity! The Bruno Mars concert was one of my best experiences that I ever had! My friend and I enjoyed every moment with joy and happiness.
I will never forget this memory, because this singer is one of my favourites and it was powerful to feel each song in my heart and in my soul! Our students tell us that some of their most memorable moments while studying with us come from being immersed into a new culture. For this reason, through The English Studio LIVE we send a student from London and Dublin to experience a live event in the city each month.
Our teachers nominate students they feel are the most hard-working or improved, those that have achieved outstanding results or contributed significantly in the classroom. Nominated students are entered into a prize draw and the lucky winner will get the chance to attend a music concert, world-famous sporting event or box-office hit theatre show. Students in 2018 attended concerts including Beyoncé and Jay-Z, The Rolling Stones, Bruno Mars, The Script and many more. THE ENGLISH STUDIO LIVE 12 | firstname.lastname@example.org • email@example.com
Every week, a schedule of sightseeing, cultural and leisure activities is organised so there's something for everyone to take part in and enjoy.
We know that many of our students are managing a tight budget, so our informed and experienced staff will seek out the best activities for day or night that are completely free or suit any pocket. Even though there is so much to do in the city, we recommend that our students, whether in London or Dublin, go further and explore the rest of the country during their stay. We arrange regular day trips led by The English Studio staff or organised through other providers that we work with.
Both England and Ireland can serve as a gateway to the rest of Europe. For students studying with us for longer from other continents, they will find plenty of flights available for city breaks, sporting adventures or a weekend at the beach. Our team will be happy to advise students looking to plan a trip further afield. Kenny Moynihan | HEAD OF STUDENT SERVICES. THE ENGLISH STUDIO DUBLIN We know students want more than an English lesson, they want to have an experience. The focus of our programme is on cultural understanding of the city and country. Each month, we update our programme to include one-off events which you won't find anywhere else in the country.
We also include a mixture of fee-paying and free activities to match our students' budgets.
The Social Programme At the heart of The English Studio’s social programme is our desire to give students an opportunity to meet their classmates outside of lessons to practise their English, make friends and most importantly to have fun! 13 www.englishstudio.com |

But don’t just take my word for it, London frequently appears top in polls as being the most highly rated study and travel destination globally. Whether it’s history, culture, markets or music that excite you, London has it all. I’ve lived here for 5 years and I’m still exploring and meeting new people every day; it really is an inspiring city!

The people here are friendly, ready to help and always in the mood for a chat! There’s something for everyone here whether you like live music, sport, theatre or art, and we have loads of different festivals throughout the year too.
Dublin is over 1000 years old, so it’s steeped in history and there is always something new to discover. What I also love about this city is that on one side there’s the sea and on the other side the countryside, so for students who like outdoor activities, there is so much to choose from. Situated in the centre of Ireland's iconic capital city, students who choose to study with us in Dublin will discover a city like no other. Surrounded by cafés, bars and shopping centres, our school is set amongst historic sites showcasing the city’s Viking and medieval heritage.
