2011 to 2012 A busy year and then a birthday year

Posted on by anthony

2011 was a very busy year for LTC. We taught over 7000 students in London, Brighton and Eastbourne and welcomed over 250 study-tour groups from around the world. We also relocated our London school to a larger modernised building in Ealing, West London. You can find our more about London’s courses, including its new afternoon general English courses and part time classes on this website.

2012 will move the focus to LTC Brighton, which is undergoing a makeover for its 40th birthday. The school first opened its doors as an Inlingua school in 1972. We don’t know how many students have been taught at Portland Road in 40 years but a conservative estimate would be 50,000, probably many many more.

In the meantime, you can find our 2012 course and price information on this website.

Love Brighton!

Posted on by anthony

Brighton is small enough to get to know in a few days, but big enough to have all the nightlife and entertainment you could want. It’s also so close to London it’s sometimes know as London by the Sea and the culture and buzz of London is only 55 minutes away by train.

The Brighton Tourism department has recently started a blog and a Facebook page all about why people ‘Love Brighton’ and there is also a great Flickr photo album.

Lonely Planet on Brighton and Hove

Posted on by anthony

We noticed a link to Lonely Planet’s write-up on our lovely city of Brighton and Hove, and thought we should share!

Our only problem is that they don’t mention what a great place it is for language schools, English courses and of course the home of LTC!

The British summer is an exciting time in our language schools. It’s a time when it seems the whole of Europe travels to towns and cities around the UK to learn English and enjoy the sunshine!

Please check our availability page for updates on availability in July and August.

Google Map Updates

Posted on by anthony

At LTC we try to use the web to provide as much information as possible to our students before they arrive. The idea is to ‘open a window’ onto the experience they’ll have in the UK at our schools in London, Brighton and Eastbourne. We believe that this means that students will arrive in the UK better prepared, more excited and also a little less nervous about their stay!

So if it’s information about the nearest coffee shop to the school for coffee addicts, the nearest place to play tennis for those inspired by Wimbledon, or the location of their homestay, our Google Maps are a great place to start the search for information.

LTC Brighton was the first school to integrate its Google Map into pre-arrival information for this summer. You can find our map at http://bit.ly/ltc-b-map so far we’ve had over 600 clicks.

London’s map can be found at http://bit.ly/ltc-l-map and Eastbourne’s http://bit.ly/ltc-e-map

We’ve just updated all the icons on the maps to make them more user friendly. Happy clicking!

LTC London is moving!

Posted on by anthony

LTC London is moving to a new school building.

We’re very pleased to announce that in September 2011 LTC London will be relocating to a new and much larger building in Ealing. This will mean improved faculties for students and a school with a capacity of 200 students. More information will appear on the website and this blog over the next two months, but for now we’d like to share an ‘artist’s impression’ of the new building as it will look in September.

Summer time in Ealing

Posted on by anthony

Quite leafy Ealing, as it’s known to locals, gets a little noisy in July. Lovely Walpole Park have been turned into a festival arena, with each weekend a different theme to enjoy. Last week Terry Alderton, Omid Djalili, Sean Lock, Stephen K Amos and Milton Jones made us laugh in the comedy festival, and this week we’ll be enjoying Jazz al fresco with The Ronnie Scott Legacy Band, the latin jazz of Paul Carmicheal’s Flight, Dick Esmond’s Sound of 17 Big Band and many more.

Check out the Ealing council website for more information on times and very reasonable entrances fees!

Welcome to the all-new LTC London!

Posted on by anthony

We’re pleased to announce the relocation of our school in London to its new premises at 100 Warwick Road, Ealing, West London.

The new school is almost twice the size of our old premises, and is in its own self-contained building. The building is newly decorated and we’ve also invested in new furniture and classroom equipment.

Located over 2 floors the school is now 7000 square feet/750 square meters and features:

  • 17 classrooms
  • A dedicated computer centre
  • A large student lounge
  • Student Kitchen

The school is located next door to the University of West London, and to both Ealing Broadway and South Ealing underground stations are only a few minutes walk. This means there is more access to central London and our homestay areas.

Over the next few weeks we’ll be keeping this blog up to date with more photos and information as the various facilities at the school take shape and our students and staff settle into the building!

We’ve also updated our Google Map with details of the new location and the surrounding area.
