Students should expect to contribute and actively participate in lessons which are delivered by our team of enthusiastic tutors, many of whom are native speakers.

Course fees are due termly in advance. We regret that we cannot refund any missed sessions if you are unable to attend or if you decide not to continue with the class.

Our classroom courses take place at Bishop Wordsworth’s School, Exeter Street, Salisbury, SP1 2ED. The learning environment is relaxed and informal in pleasant surroundings. Classrooms are well equipped and parking is usually available on site.
Before attending a class at school, it is important that you are familiar with our Covid-19 procedures which can be found at the bottom of this page.
In the event of further lockdowns, courses will be delivered online. Our online courses are delivered as real time interactive classes via Zoom with your tutor and fellow students. To take part you need a computer, laptop, tablet or mobile phone connected to the Internet. The device you use also needs to have a camera, microphone and speakers. Most devices now have these built in, but if not you might have to buy them from a computer shop and connect them to your device.
You do not need a Zoom account to participate in our classes but when you join your first meeting, if you have not used Zoom before, you will be prompted to download Zoom onto your device. To find out more about using Zoom and to join a test meeting, please visit https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/115002262083-Joining-a-test-meeting
The unexpected transfer from classroom lessons to online lessons at the end of March 2020 was very successful with both tutors and students adapting to the new environment very quickly. Our tutors are now very experienced in delivering classes this way.
