Your learning experience
We offer our students more than just a language course- we give them a full immersion into the life and culture of our beautiful, friendly small town.
Modern classrooms in a truly historic building
With our own unique blend of old and new, our classrooms are bright and modern, with individual designer furniture, Apple TVs and free wi-fi throughout to ensure your learning experience is cutting edge as well as fun and effective.
Quality teaching targeted to your needs
Our school is housed in the historic Gate House building (above), the defining and iconic landmark of Totnes High Street. This building formed the original entrance to the town walls and parts of it date back to the late 14th Century.
One of our classrooms is actually in the room beneath the clock tower that forms the bridge across the road!
Our teachers are professional as well as friendly and approachable. They want to help you reach your learning goals using the best methods for you. Our teaching ethos is based on discovering individual strengths and weaknesses and working towards personal targets, rather than a generalised approach that may or may not work for you. Our classroom settings are specially designed to encourage conversation and participation, integrating technology and maximising outcomes for everyone.
Meet new friends from all over the world
It goes without saying that the teachers, the office staff, the locals of Totnes and your fellow students will all form an important part of your overall experience. At English in Totnes, you are guaranteed to meet a bunch of warm, friendly, welcoming, wonderful, interesting (and sometimes eccentric!) people. We hope the friendships you make here will continue well beyond your stay.
