What our students say
I'm Andrea, I'm from Italy and I'm 36 years old. I've been in Bloomsbury International for 8 months. When I arrived, I couldn’t speak English, my first class was at pre-intermediate level. Now I finished the course studying in an IELTS class and I can think about studying at university.
I've known many teachers and I think they are really prepared and accurate. All staff is very helpful and kind. Personally, I believe that Bloomsbury International is an excellent school. I can really suggest it to everyone who wants to learn English.
It has been a very good experience due to the quality of the classes and also because all the teachers and staff in the school are very friendly.
I definitely recommend Bloomsbury International to everyone who wants to boost his/her English.
Dear Bloomsbury teachers,
Thanks for your welcome. I am sure I improved my English here with your help. If I need to learn more, I will come back here of course.
See you soon!!
Before taking the TOEIC exam in March 2013, I attended an English class for 9 weeks at Bloomsbury International. This school allowed me to boost my English very quickly and so I got a score of 945 for my Listening and Reading TOEIC exam!
Bloomsbury’s teachers and staff are really engaged and friendly. They always listen to students in order to help them improve their English skills. I truly recommend Bloomsbury International to all the students who want to come to London to learn, improve or perfect their English in the best conditions.
The courses and the activities provided were great. The staff was wonderful. They helped me a lot in organising my group's stay here.
Apart from the weather, everything was cheerful!

I have studied in bloomsbury for 6 months. My English has improved a lot and this is the most important thing because I'm planning to study in London next year...
It was fantastic, very good atmosphere and friendly as well.. The teachers are so friendly and they are always keen to help you.
I have made very good friends there, and I will never forget this experience...Thank you for everything
This is a testimonial about one of our excellent teachers!
First of all, thank you so much. Thanks to you I really learnt a lot of things. You always praised me highly even though I couldn't do well, so that I could speak with confidence. Especially I've got really nice memories of classes with you. Because of the education system in Korea, I just focussed on grammar to get a high exam grade to enter a good university. You’ve changed my way to approach English.
Now I realise that English is not just a subject in school, it is a language. After that I could communicate easily without thinking of my mistakes. The last thing I want to say is that Bloomsbury is perfect to improve your English and all teachers and staff are great.

I really want to thank you for your kindness and constant availability. If I can come back to London on a similar course, I will have no hesitation in coming back to Bloomsbury International. I am very happy because, thanks to all the team at Bloomsbury, I have had a great and beneficial experience.
I’m so proud that I got a perfect score. Although I was aiming for the perfect score, I wasn't sure if it was even possible. Two months before the exam, I bought a textbook which has 6 exams and tried to do the test in the same way as the actual test allocating the same time and giving myself pressure. I listened to the included CDs many times and even read the dialogues aloud to familiarize myself with the types of conversation.
The most difficult thing was keeping my concentration because the exam lasts for more than two hours. In order to strengthen my concentration, I studied in a noisy place such as on a tube or bus, even in a noisy library where children were playing around trying not to be distracted by anything. I’m an English teacher in Japan and always tell my students that practice is important to be a better English teacher, so I’m glad I can prove this to my students.
Bloomsbury International was the perfect location to take the exam. The TOEIC centre looks very professional. I hadn’t been there before the exam but even contacting staff through emails was quick and helpful.
Before and after the exam, the staff were friendly and cared about each person. I highly recommend this centre to brush up and test your English skills.

This year was one of the most fulfilling year of my life! It is thanks to the great teachers and the school, the people who supporting me.
I got to be able to tell a joke with teammates of darts now. I have been practicing hard every day and aiming for the world. Thank you so much, Bloomsbury!!

I enjoy studying at Bloomsbury International because the teachers are really prepared to give interesting classes and they are opened to help you any time. Furthermore, I met people from all over the world: Japan, Italy, Spain, Argentina, France and other countries.
Friendly environment, yet professional. I like the teachers; they make you fall in love with English so easily.
Friendly teachers and nice people in the class!
What I like about Bloomsbury International is the comfortable atmosphere and the internationality. Here you can find people of all ages and from all over the world. The teachers are great, they are friendly and kind. Even the lessons are interesting and you enjoy studying English.
Bloomsbury International is located in a beautiful place, which is easy to reach. The staff are friendly and provide you with all the information you need. Lessons are fun and interesting, the teachers are always helpful.
I like that we meet people from every part of the world.
There are many multi-cultural students, because of that I have made friend from several different places and learned about our differences.
Teachers at Bloomsbury are very nice and helpful. In a class we are not too many so it's easy to participate and improve English.
I've been studying at Bloomsbury International for just one week and I'm sure I'm going to book more weeks. When I first discovered their English courses, I was surprised by the prices, which are really affordable and reasonable. Then, while attending lessons, I understood that every single aspect of this school was well cared for, starting from the welcome and forwards to classes and teachers.
I stayed only one week, not enough! Would like to be there for a month or a year…..Really good and funny teachers, really nice students and a good atmosphere to have fun and study at the same time. Just go there!
Since I arrived at Bloomsbury I felt like at home. I met new people and I made a lot of friends. The teachers are great! I'm very happy to be here.
A friend recommended Bloomsbury to me. When I arrived I felt the awesome atmosphere. Good facilities, nice staff and most importantly - amazing teachers. I'm sure that was the perfect choice.
I booked a General English course for 8 weeks at Bloomsbury. I enjoyed the time here, I improved my English and I met a lot of new people. The teachers are very friendly and motivated. Maybe after my studies, I'll come back for the Business English course.
….the best about this school is meeting good teachers and fun people. It's priceless for me. I'll never forget them. Thank you very much.
Thank you very much for such brilliant news and the result. Due to the nature of my business, I read around 150 e-mails each day, plus several industry papers, internal and external documents are stacked on my desk, which surely improved my English reading capabilities. Also, I have 20 or so telephone business discussions each day, which has also assisted me in improving my Listening skills. After everything, I have to express my sincere appreciation of my excess work load. There is a Japanese saying, originally from China, ‘every cloud has a silver lining.’

I knew I did quite well in my TOEIC exam, but scoring 100% is really a pleasant surprise! I'd like to say a big thank you to Bloomsbury International for providing excellent facilities for the TOEIC examination. The high clarity of the audio playback as well as the nice bright exam room no doubt contributed greatly to my success in scoring 100% on both the listening and reading sections!

What can I say!! I’ve been 3 months here at Bloomsbury. I think this experience is marvellous, because here in London you can see everything and find people polite, funny, extrovert, shy etc. that is how I found people in the school. It is for that I’m enjoying every class and every person here. Thank god for this gift. (Photo: Maria Alejandra Castellano)

I never been in this school before even if I am living in London since the 7th Jul 2011………..I decided to book my general English course and I really enjoy it……….everyone was nice and kind with me from the first day especially the receptionist ladies who made me feel comfortable to become part of the school. I recommend this school to everyone that seriously wants to improve the English and meet people from different countries. The teachers are very friendly and make you feel welcome with open arms and take care of your English comprehension. (Photo:Cecilia Maria Posti & Stella Palombelli)

Dear Jonny and other members of Bloomsbury school team,
I meant to send this email earlier, but was snowed by work.
I wanted to say, that you are a superb school and I could not wish for more of excellent education, helpful staff, and for such understanding and kind approach to every person. Alex loved the school and have passed exams with flying colours, he has got a distinction in English recently.
Wish you the best and will definitely recommend to all my friends and relatives your school.

Very interesting method with listening, reading, speaking and a lot of interactive activities. Teachers are very kind and nice.
Hadrien Pigot (France)
I really like the school. Teachers are nice and kind and they are good in speaking so I always understand what they are saying. For me it’s all ok!

Teachers are very attentive and makes all the class more interesting

I like the way how my two teachers are teaching to us English. It’s the first time I spent so many weeks in an international class and I think I will learn so many things thanks to our two teachers. After that I love Bloomsbury International because of, the cheapest one in London!
Pietro Contedor (Italy)
I really enjoyed to study in Bloomsbury because teachers are all kind, friendly and helpful. I especially enjoyed to communicate with students from all over the world. So I would like to come back again!

Bloomsbury college is a real English School! I love my class atmosphere. We are ten students from different countries and I get a feel of multicultural spirit! It’s amazing! Moreover, the school is in a fantastic position. A traditional English buildings in the centre of London!
Stefania Antonelli (Italy)
Very professional teachers, they have very interesting programme which is variable. I like the atmosphere in the class room. I like working in pairs and groups. The Staff is very helpful.
Ekaterina Danilova (Russia)
Studying in this school was a great experience. The staff is very friendly and take care of the students.
As far as the lessons are concerned, they are all very interesting. The learning ways are varied.(subjects, oral and reading understanding, pronounciation, grammar etc.) And teachers are attentive and make us feel confident in using English.
Céline Moret (France)
I like the fact that there are so many nationalities in one class, everybody has got a different accent so nobody is making fun of because of the way he talks. It’s very different from school, much more relaxed. Thanks to the test at the beginning, we can learn English with people of our levels. It allows us to progress a lot.
I would like to thank everyone at Bloomsbury International for such a great school. Nadege, without whose support and patience, I would never have completed the course, Sarah, for working so hard at finding new accommodation, Jonny for being a great DoS and my teachers (Philip, Paulina and Ally) for being so great, happy and loving their job. The methods were perfect and I will definitely recommend Bloomsbury to my friends and family.
Baptiste Lavernot (France)
I had a great experience in Bloomsbury. The lessons allowed me to improve my English and to be more confident with speaking and writing in a correct way. I upgrade my fluency and I’m grateful for this.
