Learn English at the very heart of the English Riviera, the birthplace of Agatha Christie. You can enjoy the sun, go shopping during the day, feast on fresh fish and party into the night! Come to our school of English in Torbay!
Why you will love to learn English in Torbay
With our recently renovated school of English in Torbay, you will notice that this area truly has something for everyone: Paignton’s sandy beaches, Brixham’s fishing port and Torquay’s busy town centre are just some of the options. Likewise, enjoy the water park, beaches, history, go-kart racing, pubs, clubs, restaurants… you name it, we have it! Almost as far south as you can go, and with the best temperatures in Britain, your umbrella will not see very much action.
In and around Torbay, the beautiful scenery and nature will hypnotize you. Furthermore, you will learn English in England with the world famous Dartmoor on the doorstep. However, if you prefer urban life, the historic cities of Plymouth and Exeter are within easy reach. Else, take a day trip to Bath to see the Romans and Jane Austen come to life!
As you can see, LAL Torbay is the perfect place to take an English course during your holiday.

The teachers get along with all of the students.
I learnt how to express myself, how to listen, how to write and to believe in myself. I sincerely think that LAL is a good school, and all of the teachers are so kind, good listeners and understanding. The teachers get along with all of the students.

I’m very happy with the IELS English school in Malta.
I’m very happy with the IELS English school in Malta. The small group lessons as well as the 1-to-1 training are well adapted to my level of English. The teachers are well-prepared for any speaking or writing problems which come up in class.
Boston is an amazing city.
My favourite place in Boston is Boston Common. It is so relaxing and you can see animals and sit on the grass and be relaxed. Boston is an amazing city actually for me. It is so safe. I like to go to Harvard. It makes me feel so motivated.
I liked my stay here a lot.
The school system is great with the different levels and the online Advantage page where you can practice. My teacher was very friendly and taught in a good way.
One weekend, I was with some friends of school at the beach in Miami. It was very beautiful with the nearly white sand.
