English Language Courses in London

Currently teaching online English courses during lockdown, we are reopening for face-to-face English lessons on the 8th March!

At the Islington Centre for English (ICE), London we are the English Language Specialists. Our English Courses run from Beginner (CEFR A1) to Advanced (CEFR C2) level and we offer a wide range of courses from General English to First Certificate, English Accent Perfection to Business English.

Courses run during the morning, afternoons and evenings so you can fit your English course around work or social commitments. Study full time or part time to suit you! We also offer Super Intensive and Full Immersion English Courses for those students looking to make extra fast progress and improve their English as quickly as possible.

We want you to speak English confidently and effectively. Teachers ensure students spend a lot of time practising their conversation skills in class, as well as Reading, Writing and Listening.
