Established in 1997, Bath Academy of English is an independent, boutique language school set in the heart of the beautiful world heritage city of Bath. As a UKBA tier 4 sponsor and British Council accredited school, we provide high quality education in a stimulating, active and supportive environment for international students from all over the world.
Our qualified, highly experienced teachers and friendly staff are dedicated to helping our students achieve their individual language learning goals through a carefully balanced approach of teaching methodologies, incorporating dynamic and focused lessons, clear objectives and individual attention.
We pride ourselves in being serious about learning; class sizes are deliberately kept small to ensure that each student receives personal attention and that progress is carefully managed to include weekly homework, short revision tests and monthly tutorials and progress tests.
As well as General English courses we can also deliver preparation courses for IELTS and Cambridge ESOL examinations, Business English, Professional Skills Workshops and both English for Academic Purposes and English for Specific Purposes. Two new courses have recently been launched – Conversational English, where a completely learner centered approach is used and Cultural English, a course for visitors to combine their holiday to the UK with practical English language help.
We also have a well-established Junior Summer School which is the perfect environment for teenagers to study English in a caring and fun atmosphere. Lessons focus on providing maximum time to practise speaking skills and enhance vocabulary based on topics all linked to the accompanying social programme.
This year we are offering two new courses unique to Bath Academy; a Shakespeare-themed Junior Summer School and a course for mature students centred around Jane Austen.
An entertaining and informative social programme is incorporated into all our courses which takes full advantage of the many attractions of Bath and surrounding areas. Bath Academy can arrange accommodation in Bath with caring and responsible homestay providers. Living in homestay accommodation, students are able to learn more about British customs and traditions and it’s a great way to gain valuable, additional conversational practice.
Our welfare officer ensures all students are happy with their course and comfortable with their host family. The welfare officer makes sure that all our host families comply with Bath Academy and government regulations.
We look forward to welcoming you to Bath Academy of English and hope you find your studies enjoyable and rewarding!
