We offer short, intensive, residential immersion courses in English and soft skills for business and professional purposes. Most of our clients are large international companies but we also have smaller clients and individuals. Most of our students are middle to senior managers, engineers, scientists, marketing and sales people. They usually come to us for one or two weeks but longer periods and weekend training are further options.
Lydbury is the ideal environment for serious learning. We offer a quiet and friendly rural environmet which provides total immersion in English 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. Our training is excellent, as is our cuisine; and our comfortable residential on site accommodation means you do not waste time travelling every day. We are happy to offer you access to free internet connection and other essential facilities.
