Our Programmes

Loxdale English Centre is the perfect location for your studies. If you are looking for high quality, affordable English lessons then look no further.

Loxdale is not like most other language schools. When you study with us you will have access to the widest possible choice of courses, each of which is based on active student participation and designed to reinforce your learning experience and appreciation of the English language and culture.

Our lively and interactive programmes are designed for students who wish to improve their ability to communicate in English in the company of like-minded people from around the world, whilst also enjoying the experience of learning in Brighton, one of the UK’s most vibrant and culturally diverse cities.

For professional, stand-alone English lessons conducted in a warm and friendly atmosphere then our highly popular
General English Course is the perfect answer to your needs.

Study English with other subjects to make the most of your time in England. The English Plus course is an opportunity of combining General English with a diverse range of subjects with something to suit most tastes.

Courses include art, gardening, fashion, drama, history, screen-printing, photography, environmental studies, media, British culture and creative English.

Whilst always maintaining the highest academic standards, Loxdale courses are competitively priced and represent excellent value for money.
