Why English Today?

Why English Today?

  • Because it is just a great place to be!
  • It’s where we successfully build self-confidence in our students and self-assurance in their use of English.

English Today is situated in Eastfields House within the grounds of the prestigious Culford Park. We are surrounded by 480 acres of beautiful parkland with an 18th century mansion in the middle.  Our facilities are second to none and students learn, relax, sleep and thrive all in the one location with their teachers on-hand.

Keeping it fun, fresh and imaginative are the core principles which underpin our two-week courses. We pride ourselves on ensuring every child has the chance to express themselves and to grow. Our track record shows every single student leaves English Today with increased confidence, not only in thinking, speaking and writing in English, but also in themselves .  They all return home having had a great time.

  • We keep classroom time to mornings when students are freshest
  • We tailor-make each course to ensure students are learning whilst having fun through activities, drama, team sports, challenges and cultural excursions
  • We ensure they emerge enthusiastic for more. They are more capable in their English, more cultured in their outlook and more confident in themselves
