English Language Courses


Bath Academy remains ‘open’ with staff continuing to operate onsite (face to face classes) and remotely (online classes) with a view to ensuring continuity of education, to answer any queries, and continue our form of blended learning.

We continue to accept applications for both Academic and English courses with flexible options.

Bath Academy is pleased to announce that we have been recognised by Visit England with the ‘We’re Good to Go’ certificate which means we have put all the UK Government and English UK safety recommendations in place, and we’re ready to welcome students!


We have taken some of our English lessons online so we can bring the classroom directly to your home. We are offering face-to-face lessons with our experienced teachers (and other classmates if in a group lesson), so speaking and listening skills can be practised, just as in a classroom.

Our paperless classroom – Showbie – allows students & teachers to stay connected with essential tools for all types of English language exercises, so grammar, reading & writing skills can be worked on and improved with effective feedback & communication.


Please visit our Covid-19 page to see our approach to re-opening safely, where you will also find our Re-Opening FAQs. Any other questions, don’t hesitate to contact us!


Bath Academy has a variety of English Language Courses to suit every type of student, from Beginner to Advanced Levels. Our wide range of courses are the perfect choice for those who wish to improve their English for study or work, for those who wish to take the IELTS exam, or international academic students who would like more intensive English language development to prepare them for higher education in the UK.
