LAL Language Centre London

LAL Language Centre London has the warm environment of a boutique school with the high standards of an international language school chain. Students are well taken care of at LAL London, where staff and teachers ensure students are comfortable and confident in their language learning.

The school is located in a modern brick building in Twickenham, a safe and affluent suburb in south west London, outside of the city center. The local area evokes a smaller city, with a mixture of terrace houses, modern buildings and colorful shopfronts. The school is also walking distance from the River Thames, where locals like to spend sunny afternoons lazing on the banks and relaxing, or having a picnic. Central London is however still easily accessible using the efficient public transport system.

Twickenham is the center of rugby in London, and students will have the opportunity to attend a match during the rugby season, amongst other activities which are on offer at the school. There are also a number of clubs held weekly, including conversation and film and book clubs, where students can practice their English skills with their peers.  The school building itself is modern and refurbished with brightly lit classrooms.  

All professors hold a minimum of a CELTA qualification, and many have university qualifications as teachers of English as a foreign language. The school is accredited by the British Council for the teaching of English in the UK and is a member of English UK, the national association of English language centers in the United Kingdom.
