Protection for Students
All our schools are members of English UK, the professional body for English language schools in Britain. This protects students in two important ways. Your course would be guaranteed even if our schools closed and you can complain to English UK if you are not happy with our services.
Our school is located in a safe residential area of Eastbourne. This is a unique school in one of the most beautiful towns in the south-east of England.
Our school is medium sized. The staff will get to know you individually and will be happy to help if you have any questions or problems.
Courses Taught by Qualified English Language Teachers
Under British Council regulations, all our teachers must have a university degree and an English language teaching qualification that is recognised by the British Council.
(In exceptional circumstances, we may employ a teacher who does not possess one of these qualifications if we reasonably deem them to be appropriately qualified and experienced.)
Carefully Selected Homestay Accommodation
Homestay is an excellent way to learn about the British way of life and practise your English in a relaxed setting outside the classroom. LTC is able to offer homestay within walking distance of the school.
A Varied Social Programme to Help You Make Friends
Relaxing and having fun is an essential part of your language learning experience. Our programmes are designed to help you make friends and get to know the local area.
School Principal who can Make Quick Decisions
The Principal of our school has autonomy. When a student or an agent needs it, they can make a quick decision to help.
“I come from a family of teachers and became an English teacher 35 years ago in order to travel and meet people from other countries. I have taught in England, Italy and Thailand and have worked as a teacher trainer, materials writer, academic manager and manager.
“I have a strong interest in customer service and am always looking for ways to improve the services we offer students, parents and agents.
“Originally from Manchester (United, not City), I love living in Eastbourne because of the beautiful countryside nearby. I especially like walking on the South Downs and in Friston Forest.”
“I personally love to travel and have worked in France, Bolivia and Fiji. I love to explore new cultures and to meet new people. I also enjoy discovering new music, seeking out boutique British pubs and spending time with friends and family.
With a background in marketing, both educationally and professionally, and experience within the international business sector, I am excited to communicate with students, parents and partners around the world about courses and opportunities at LTC. I am eager to help with any student requests and always look forward to seeing new faces.”
Our staff have lots of experience and there will always be someone available to help with any questions you may have.
