High-quality host families in London

Our homestays are well-connected to our classrooms and can be reached by underground, train and bus. London is one of the largest cities in Europe and is divided into six public transport zones. Depending on your preferences and budget you can choose which zone you want to stay in.

ZONE 1

Central London, the closest to the city centre and all the main attractions. A great choice for students who want to be at the heart of the bustle and don’t mind paying a bit more for their accommodation.

What to see: The Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, Tower Bridge, Buckingham Palace and much more. It’s where the main action takes place!

The ring around the city where you can be in the centre in no time at all. The perfect option for those who still want to feel very much part of the buzz of London while saving up a tad on their accommodation.

What to see: Abbey Road and Camden Town if you want to stay on the hip side, Notting Hill and Portobello Market for a romantic atmosphere.

Farther away from the centre, this zone offers the best of both worlds: it is a little more cheaper than Zone 2 but still reasonably near to the city centre. The ideal solution for those looking for more spacious and affordable host family homes.

What to see: Here you can experience the scents of the Kew Gardens or take a look at the stars at Greenwich.

A more outlying district that provides you with the best of city and country life for a genuine London experience. With fast trains to all London mainline stations, it is the best option for students looking for great value for money and quiet surroundings.

What to see: In this area you have the possibility to visit the Royal Air Force Museum or the Wembley Stadium, one of the most famous sport arenas in the whole world.

Top reviews

Classes with Klazz were really good: the teacher was patient with the students, and she had good teaching methods. We went to many museums with the teacher and it was really interesting to talk about the museum afterwards in the class. Now I feel more comfortable in English, so the experience was definitely worth it!

In the afternoon the class went with Alison around London and we saw a lot of the city with her. One day visited Big Ben and could see the London eye which was beautiful as the weather was sunny that day so we were very lucky. For me the week was a lot of fun.

I loved classes with Klazz!

Italy

Marco M.

My time in London was the best experience of my life. It was my first time in London and honestly I can say that I fell in love with the city. There is so much to see there, it is impossible to be bored. The co-working space is very close to Hyde Park and after class we went there with Alison and the whole class, the weather was so sunny and honestly I can say it was an amazing time. I would recommend to everyone to go to London in their life! Thank you Klazz!

Italy

Martina A.

I wanted to improve my English to give me more career options and I found that these classes helped me a lot, now my English is much better. The teacher, Alison, is very good as she understands the needs of each student and because the class is small she is able to focus on everyone. Overall, Klazz was very good for me and I recommend it highly.

Portugal

João N.

My teacher in London was Alison and I found that she was an excellent teacher. She has patience with her students so you do not feel embarrassed or upset if you make a mistake, and she encourages you to be confident when you are speaking English. My English has improved now thanks to Alison and Klazz.

Italy

Francesca M.

The time with Klazz was amazing, I loved the teacher Alison!

Switzerland

Sophia P.

There were more people in my class than I hoped (we were 9), but the teacher Alison was still able to help all of us and everyone could feel like they were important.

Italy

Davide L.

I had a great time in London, studying English in a very international class with Alison as a teacher.

Italy

Dario T.

The teacher Alison was very kind but I think sometimes it was difficult for her to control the class because there were 9 of us and some people were talking at the same time. However, overall it was very good and this was only on the first day that we had a small problem.

Switzerland

Elias R.

London is a beautiful city! I think it is my favourite place in the world now because I had a fantastic time there with my teacher Alison and my class.

Germany

Hanna O.

My stay in London was amazing! I loved the Christmas atmosphere, we went visiting Christmas markets with our teacher Alison and it was so cool! Classes in the morning were intense but worth it, as I feel way better now when I speak English.

Germany

Luka D.

Alison is a good teacher and she helped my English to improve when I was in London because she explained the topics very clearly so I felt that I really understood it.

Germany

Charlote E.

The exercises we did with with Alison were perfect for our level. With my four classmates, we worked mostly on writing and speaking, and now I am more relaxed when I speak English.

Germany

Lena D.

I loved spending 2 weeks with Klazz. With my classmates we had classes with Alison (a great teacher!) in the morning, and visited London together in the afternoon, stopped by pubs, having dinner together… In the end, my classmates became my friends!

Switzerland

Amélie D.

I really liked the teacher Alison and the classmates, we had a good time together and are still in touch.

Studying with Alison was the best, it was easy to understand her explanations and she was totally available to answer all our questions.

Switzerland

Elisabeth V.

Alison is an amazing teacher, without any doubt. She was all the time nice and caring, and she’s very good at teaching English.

Switzerland

Davide G.

The Klazz teacher Alison is the perfect teacher, she is kind with her students and she makes you feel important. All of us in the class loved Alison because she made the learning fun, which it has never been for me before I came with Klazz.

Switzerland

Justine P.

I was in London for 3 weeks to learn English but I wish that I could stay longer there. Everyone in the class was very nice and we were all friends together so the lessons were very fun, and the teacher Alison was also great.

Spain

Clara D.

I will say that I had a good time overall with Klazz because my teacher Alison was excellent but I think that there were too many people in the class for me. In the first week we were 10 people and the next week it was 9, I would prefer a smaller class.

Spain

Fiorela T.

Classes with Klazz were fun and we learned a lot from our teacher Alison, she is very good with explaining things clearly. In the afternoons we did activities, for example one day we went to the museum and Alison informed us of many interesting facts about the museum. The activities in the afternoon were my favourite because you see interesting sites but you also are still speaking English so you feel that you are improving. I had a great time and London is the best city!

Spain

Nina Z.

My classes with Klazz were always interesting because there was a good range of exercises and then in the afternoon we all went to visit nice places in London.

Argentina

Camila T.

Alison is a great teacher: creative and patient. I enjoyed her learning games and I think they were useful.

Italy

Taina Di G.

A very good experience with Klazz! I've enjoyed my experience with Klazz. I stayed two weeks in September in London. We were three people the first and only two the second week. So, with our native English-speaking teacher, Alison, it was easier to improve our skills in English.

France

Béatrice P.

Alison is very attentive to the well being of the students. She takes the time to adapt to everyone's weakness. A lot of exercise and links to study even outside class. She's a good guide for London outings and discoveries. The courses are articulated in stages: individual working, grammar, vocabulary and listening. This makes it possible to vary the working supports.

Why Klazz

Affordable and convenient

Study English in the heart of London for an affordable price. It has never been so easy to immerse yourself in British culture.

Simple and innovative

Select your class, book, go. It only takes three steps to make your booking. Klazz Campus will provide you with helpful information and support throughout your stay.

Safe and transparent

With Klazz you can see your teacher and future classmates in advance, book a host family from home and enjoy the stay thanks to our included travel insurance!

Efficient and personalized

We offer small, comfortable class sizes to enhance your learning experience. Courses are personalized based on your needs. Choose the start date and duration that suit you best.

We are Unique

Traditional schools sell courses through agencies. Agency margins reach up to 40%! Additionally, agencies try to sell you expensive courses, since that’s how they earn more.

Klazz has no middlemen and therefore no added costs! We have our own study advisors who are language travel experts and will tell you everything as it is; while agency representatives are often badly informed about schools that they sell.

Language schools traditionally pay high maintenance and rental costs, even when their facilities are empty. All this adds to your course price.

At Klazz we rent rooms in coworking spaces. We pay for facilities only when we need them.
Additionally - we can always pick just the best locations with optimal conditions. And our students get to engage with interesting locals who work in those spaces!

Our teachers are professional independent freelancers. We build a strong relationship with them and they work with us only when we need them. This helps us to optimize costs, provide better quality control and assure the best teacher for each class.

This also means our teachers have more flexibility and higher responsibility, which allows us to pay them above the industry average. That’s how we attract the best teachers and how we keep them happy and motivated. Happy teachers = happy students!

We significantly decrease our operational costs by having no physical sales offices, no “old school” paper forms and almost no manual processing. That’s also better for the environment!

Digitalization and optimized processes are at the core of our company, which makes the experience also easier and more convenient for our customers.
