INTERACTIVE ENGLISH English Courses in Brighton, England
About INTERACTIVE ENGLISH
If you want to travel to Brighton & Hove, or are already here, and you want to study English Language in a warm friendly atmosphere and still get the highest quality tuition, then we think that Interactive English is for you. We are a small friendly school, owned by a teacher and run for the students. Being a small school means that we can cater for your individual needs more easily than larger schools can. But, being small doesn’t mean that we aren’t as good as bigger schools; all of our teachers are qualified, and we use the highest quality course books and materials. Our students are multinational, so you can usually find someone who speaks your language when you want to, but you can always find someone who doesn’t speak your language when you want to practise your English. As well as General English courses, we also offer IELTS, CAE and FCE exam preparation courses.
