Looking forward to summer? We are!

Posted by on Apr 23, 2014 in Blog | 1 comment

So, it has been a while since a blog post and there’s no time like the present to get back to keeping you updated! We hope everyone got to enjoy the lovely long weekend that we did. Believe it or not but the weather was actually nice (well most of the time anyway…)

It’s all systems go with us at the moment, we’re looking into a brilliant summer and we’ve already got lots of students coming to soak up the cosmopolitan atmosphere in ‘little London by-the-sea’. A lot happens in Brighton over the summer, in fact, it’s not even officially summer yet and next month we’ve already got the Brighton Festival and the Great Escape Festival happening. The summer for Brightonians and visitors just means that everything gets better and there’s even more things to do. How about checking out a film for free on the beach or maybe heading to the sea front volley ball venue? Maybe you just want to relax, grab a coffee and some lunch and watch the busking musicians and bands in the pavilion gardens. Yep, you can pretty much do anything you like! The students joining us have got an unbelievable amount of things to see and do, even just walking around the city and looking at the beautiful street art is incredible.

Another bit of great news for us is that we’ve expanded out of Brighton slightly and moved into London for a special two week course. We’ve just developed a partnership with Harrow and Mill Hill Schools for a football and English course. It’s designed to be a lot more luxurious than our other courses and it shows. We had a look round the schools and to be honest, we’re a little jealous of the students that are attending our course! We found out about some interesting old Harrovians like Winston Churchill, the founder of Island Records Chris Blackwell and the excellent photo-bomber and actor Benedict Cumberbatch. The students are going to be taught be some serious and passionate coaches and we’re really excited to see how it’s going to go for our first year.

So that’s what’s going on at the moment for us here! The sun is coming out, it’s getting warmer and that’s when Brighton really comes alive and we can’t wait for our students to see and experience it. Remember, if you ever want to get in touch with us, ask a few questions or even have a chat about Brighton and what to see and for any recommendations, we’ll be happy to help. All of our staff are lovely and friendly and very knowledgeable and, especially, love to chat!

Hope you’re looking forward to the summer as much as we are!

Brighton, Hove and Sussex hit by St Jude storm

Posted by on Oct 28, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

Hurricane force winds of up to 100mph are battering Britain with coastal areas expected to be particularly hard hit.

There are no trains until at least 10am, and bus travel along the coast has been severely disrupted. The roads are also affected, with Sussex Police receiving reports of 125 trees down already. Trees have been brought down and widespread structural damage has been predicted, leading to power cuts and transport chaos.

This live footage shows the seafront at Brighton as England’s south coast feels the force of the St Jude storm.

Fun while it’s raining

Posted by on Oct 25, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

In October it is raining almost every day. But that is no reason to stay at home. There are lots of opportunities to go out in Brighton. One website which may help you to find suitable activities for you is : http://www.theargus.co.uk/leisure/

It helped me a lot with planning my days and meeting new people. It’s perfect for people who want to come in contact with people of different nationalities. So even in the rain you can have fun!

Various restaurants in Brighton

Posted by on Oct 21, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

Good afternoon,

I live in Germany and my nationality is Turkish. Something that made me feel home were the various restaurants in Brighton. For example the Istanbul Restaurant (close to Waitrose) is a Turkish restaurant with lots of traditional Turkish food. Also the staff is Turkish which allows me to speak my mother tongue even in England. There are also many other restaurants of different countries (Chinese, Mexican, etc.).

I feel very home in Brighton! :)
