One-to-one English courses

General information

One-to-one English courses are usually combined with a General English course programme but it is possible to study only one-to-one.

Why not consider our Gold, Silver and Bronze One-to-one packages?  

Make the most of the short time you are with us to ensure you speak English, interact with teachers and fully immerse yourself in the experience of being here in beautiful Bristol. Your 10 hours of dedicated one-to-one classes, designed around your specified needs, are complemented by your time in a group class where you receive more general training and the possibility of interacting with people from all over the world.

One-to-one Packages

Questions: What do you never have enough of, no matter how hard you work? Time. 

The biggest obstacle to busy people being able to further develop their skills is a lack of time.

We at International House Bristol know how difficult it is for busy people to attend our group classes.  They have the drive and motivation but they cannot take the time away from their normal working weeks to make the most of what we have to offer.

That is why we have designed our bespoke one-to-one packages. These cater to the needs of very busy people allowing them to pack as much English as possible into the shortest time.  We know that people like you want to commit 100% to everything you do, so we are offering you the chance to maximise your exposure to English and to British culture in an action-packed, accelerated learning experience.

Our Gold, Silver and Bronze packages* make the most of the short time you are with us to ensure you speak English, interact with teachers and fully immerse yourself in the experience of being here in beautiful Bristol. Your 10 hours of dedicated one-to-one classes, designed around your specified needs, are complemented by your time in a group class where you receive more general training and the possibility of interacting with people from all over the world.

But the learning doesn’t stop there. We include breaks & meals with a teacher in some of the finest local cafes & restaurants for both lunch and dinner.  We also include social and cultural activities, again with a teacher, so that you have time to relax and experience the best of what Bristol and the South West of England have to offer. For those on the Gold and Silver packages, there is also a full-day excursion with a teacher to a major cultural event/area or a major sporting event.

Accommodation ranges from 5* hotels to top-end homestay, depending on the package chosen.
