Is a 40+ English course for me?

40+ English Courses are special English language programs designed for people over 40. They offer you the chance to learn English in an overseas location, with other mature students. The course will help you to boost your communication, reading and writing skills and build your confidence when in English-speaking countries.

A light course load of 15 hours of tuition and three organized social events a week means you’ll get a good balance of lessons and sightseeing, and get the chance to mingle with other mature students of different nationalities. Accommodation options are diverse, and can be adapted to suit individual needs.
