LSI/IH Portsmouth English Language School

We are very excited to be open and welcoming back students for face-to-face classes again! We will make sure your time with us as is safe and comfortable as possible.

Government restrictions are slowly easing and the UK will be opening up by that time. This means you will be able to visit restaurants, museums, play sport – enjoy the social and cultural side of life in Portsmouth that is so important to your study abroad experience!

All our courses are still available online. If you have to quarantine on arrival in the UK, you can study online in your host family – and benefit from 50% off tuition fees in our fully refundable quarantine package.

We understand that it is important to give you flexibility and peace of mind when you book an English language course. We have therefore changed our terms so you can book with confidence.
