Our social programme allows you to practise your English out of class, while making friends and enjoying your time in London.

This starts with precourse learning advice and careful placement in a class of the right level. You will also receive a unique Malvern House Progress Diary, full of useful information, where you can set goals and record your progress with your teacher’s help during individual progress tutorials.
There are weekly and monthly progress tests (in class and online) to consolidate learning and you have online access to your progress reports.
