Liverpool School of English International Summer School: An English and Culture Course for Groups

Liverpool is an ideal size for young language learners. It is compact, safe and easy to get around. Here at Liverpool School of English we are enormously proud of our international summer school. Since 1999, we have welcomed young learners from more than 50 different countries to Liverpool for our English and Culture course.

Liverpool is rich in history, culture and tradition yet it is also modern and vibrant. The city is alive with innovation and creativity. This inspiring combination is perfect for learning, enjoying new experiences and having great fun. This course combines communicative English lessons with cultural activities and excursions. Our students are therefore able to develop and practise their English language skills while experiencing British life and culture and making new, international friendships.

With City of Liverpool College we are able to offer excellent educational and recreational facilities in the city for our students across 2 sites at The Learning Exchange (LEX) and Duke Street. Our students, staff and group leaders very much enjoy the facilities here. Both colleges are large, bright and spacious. They are modern purpose-built colleges specifically designed to provide a stimulating learning experience for young people.

Both colleges are less than a 10 minute walk from our Liverpool School of English main building in an excellent location for groups of young learners. We are just a short walk from the city’s busier shopping areas as well as the museums and tourist attractions.

More Info

It is our first priority to ensure our students and group leaders are safe, happy and comfortable while with us at Liverpool School of English. We understand that high quality accommodation and welfare support is the most important aspect of any summer school programme.

Residence Accommodation Ages 10-17 years

Residence accommodation is a popular option for groups who want to live in the city centre. We work closely with a number of residence providers to ensure your accommodation is comfortable, well-managed and secure. All residences are no more than 15 minutes’ walk from the college buildings. All rooms are single and ensuite.

Flats will have up to 10 en-suite bedrooms and a shared lounge/kitchen area.
• Each bedroom has: a lockable door, a bed, a study desk, a chest of drawers or wardrobe, an en-suite bathroom with shower.
• Clean linen is provided weekly and there are on site laundry facilities.
• There is free Wi-Fi in the building.
• There are live-in staff in the residence to provide welfare support for the students and group leaders

Homestay Accommodation Ages 12-17 years

Homestay Accommodation is suitable for those who want to experience life in a British home. We have welcoming, friendly and helpful hosts who love living with international students. Our experienced accommodation team work closely with our hosts to ensure that our junior students are well taken care of and feel at home.

Hosts do not live in the city centre. Students will travel between 20-40 minutes on public transport to get to the colleges (a direct journey of one bus or one train). Homestay rooms maybe single or shared. For safeguarding reasons, students aged under 16 need to apply for homestay in pairs and where students are particularly young (12-13 years old) they should be paired with an older student.
