St Giles Central London

St Giles is a prestigious group of language schools with centers in England, the USA and Canada, where they have been teaching English to students from all around the world for more than 50 years. St Giles London Central has a fantastic location in the very heart of the city, right next to Russell Square garden. Popular attractions such as the British Museum, Madam Tussaud’s and the Houses of Parliament are very close by.

St Giles London Central offers a whole range of courses to suit all needs. These include business English, exam preparation, academic English and family courses. The school also offers a special business course (English for Professionals) for students who would like to achieve a high language level for their professional development and are interested in studying in a more business-like environment with like-minded students. The minimum age for this course is 21 years old and lessons are given in small groups in a separate part of the building exclusively for students taking these courses, with a private lounge to relax in after class.

St Giles London Central is housed in a beautiful 100-year-old building in the elegant Bloomsbury district. The school had modern facilities and a friendly and lively international atmosphere. All the schools’ teachers have a university degree and a DELTA certificate (Diploma in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages).  

The staff at St Giles London Central offer a program of extra-curricular activities for its students’ free time. These may include museum trips, film nights, arts and craft sessions, meals out, yoga classes and theatre visits. Some activities are offered for free, others at an additional cost.
