Private lessons and our English for Two course (private tuition for two people) are also available. These would suit you if you need personal, tailored lessons. If you already work, or want to work, within the business sector and need to improve your business language skills, we are sure you will find the Business English course very useful.

Having a dedicated exam preparation classroom shows that we want to give all our students the best exam preparation courses they can have. As well as having exam preparation courses for the Cambridge Exams, we are also a Cambridge Exam centre. So you have the convenience of taking your Cambridge exam here in the school at the end of your course, rather than travelling to another location.

We also run a TOEIC test preparation course and a TOEFL test preparation course which can be combined with general English classes. A TOEFL certificate is needed if you want to attend a university course in the USA or for entrance visa purposes.

We run two English for Specific Purposes (ESP) courses at our LAL English School in Florida. So if you are working in, (or would like to work) in the aviation industry, we run the Aviation English ICAO Level 4 exam preparation course. For those who are involved in engineering, our English for Engineering course is perfect for you.

Find out more about these courses on our website or chat with one of our operators for more information.

Leisure Programme

For an all-American experience, come to a part of the USA that has a long-standing reputation for great vacations. From coast to wetlands, from action to animals, rollercoasters to rockets, Florida has it all and a lot more besides.

Here at LAL we want you to improve your English while making memories on our organised activities and tours that will stay with you forever. The school itself has a lot to offer with a well-equipped student lounge and the on-site swimming pool that students can make full use of.

However, we understand that the students have to explore what is around Fort Lauderdale and its surrounding areas. Our English school in Florida has a regular weekly leisure programme that offers a range of different activities that you can attend after school or on the weekends.

The activities can vary from a local Fort Lauderdale Cruise for half a day to an epic weekend trip to Orlando. Keep your eyes open when you are at the LAL Fort Lauderdale School of English and see what tours are running while you are studying with us.

Your accommodation in Fort Lauderdale

LAL also offers a range of different accommodation that you can choose from while learning English in our school. A single or twin room in one of our carefully selected homestays would be the best choice if you want to experience, first-hand, an American life-style while having the chance to practise your English.

If this is not the right choice for you, LAL Fort Lauderdale is the only international language school in the city that has an on-site residence. The residence offers a convenient hotel environment, such as a cleaning service, 24-hour security, comfortable and friendly accommodation and an all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet.
