Short Bio:

I have always had a gift for teaching. I used to tutor while studying for my degree thereafter I decided to specialise in education. I have a particular passion for literature and I love to share this passion with my students. I find it hugely rewarding to not only see my students improve but also feel more confident in their abilities. My favourite part of the course is watching the students during their afternoon activities when confidently address the whole class in English.

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.

Distance to the classroom: Usually less than 20 minutes

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.

Distance to the classroom: Approximately 20-30 minutes

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.

Distance to the classroom: Approximately 45 minutes

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.

Distance to the classroom: Approximately 60 minutes

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.

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

Etienne A.

Learning English in London with Klazz was the best choice I have ever made. I spent 6 weeks attending the intensive course which I reccommend to everyone! Olivia was very prepared, she took time to focus on each student and was available to answer any questions. I feel more confident speaking English and I will surely take another course with Klazz if I have the chance!

Our Teacher Olivia recommends:

Well, I fell in love with Primrose Hill, it’s such a great spot to take in the famous London skyline: go and have a picnic! Another place I love is The Footman, in Berkeley Square; It’s my favourite London pub, authentic yet hidden in plain sight. Then, I love going to Homeslice with my friends; they’re famous for their 24′ pizzas which makes them perfect for sharing!

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.
