About Angle Education

Angle Education delivers immersive learning programmes with high-quality residential accommodation* in London, Oxford, Ipswich and Edinburgh, some of the most exciting cities on earth. Along with your lessons, you’ll also have an unforgettable experience discovering truly unique cities that have something for everyone: great theatres, museums, restaurants, shopping and historic landmarks such as Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, The Tower of London and the magnificent University Colleges of Oxford and Cambridge. Most of our programmes offer you the chance to see the key sights and places of interest while practising your English. Our staff are here to help you have the greatest experience of your life.

Angle Education specialises in closed groups and can put together packages for different types of groups – adult groups, junior groups or teacher training groups. We also accept individuals in some of our summer sites and are able to cater to both groups and individual needs.

It may be possible for some summer sites to provide classes where groups can be mixed, so that students can study with other nationalities or groups. Information sheets for each centre show options available.

What is a closed group?

A group of students that visit Angle Education to study together. We welcome groups of all sizes.

What are the advantages of closed group programmes?

  • classes at a time, day, location that is suitable for you.
  • courses that will target your students’ needs.
  • as many excursions as you would like. Your group can see the sights and experience the customs and culture of the UK

What can we offer to individual students coming to the UK?

We do offer our language programmes to individual students in specific centres, so if you like what we do and would like to study with us, please get in touch with us.

How we teach at Angle Education

We teach in an exciting way which is truly different from many other schools. The syllabus is based on themes and topics which are directly linked to activities and excursions that our students will undertake whilst in the UK. This means that the English we teach has a connection with the places we visit, the things we see, and the conversations which take place in the real world.

We can also arrange for your group to work on an ongoing project during their stay in London, Oxford, Ipswich or Edinburgh. This can lead to a presentation to the class at the end of the course. This is a good and natural way to provide revision of the language and culture learned during the course, and provides an important achievement goal for students. On the Summer Camp Programme, the presentation element usually forms a compulsory part of the syllabus.

Our syllabus

Our syllabus is a free-flowing set of modules which are based around topics and themes connected with London, Oxford, Ipswich/Cambridge, Edinburgh and the UK. There is no absolute fixed order in which topics are completed and this means we can vary the modules according to what your closed group would like to see and do during your stay and around the different parts of the UK you visit.

There is no one set course book for the class, and we use a lot of authentic materials such as local travel maps, magazine adverts and materials sourced from the internet.
