The south coast of Devon is a great place to learn English. You will use your new language skills while you discover an area that is typically English, yet feels more like the south of France. It?s a great place to study, and a great place to enjoy your vacation: the perfect location for a language holiday. LAL Torbay is proud to be a member of English UK and Accredited by the British Council for the teaching of English.

A key part of your language travel experience happens once classes are over. The best way to practise your new language skills is to get out and use them in the real world. We know you will also want to find out about the country you are visiting, to sample the lifestyle of her people and to explore the area. In each of our locations LAL excels in providing social and leisure activities that are fun, engaging and good value for money.
