Study English at UAL Language Centre: improve your English, study art and design topics and live in London.

I would definitely recommend UAL Language centre. All the teachers are very good, we do many different activities in classes. The atmosphere is very friendly and relaxed, but challenging at the same time. It has been an amazing place to learn about British cultures and many others.
