At Meridian School of English we teach students from all over the world and we are committed to keeping our classes small. This way we can ensure that our teachers can give all our students the personal attention they need. Our Plymouth school is based at Swarthmore Centre, built in 1919 by the Quaker movement for educational purposes.
Why the Mayflower College? * Students from 50+ different countries every year * Located just a few meters from the seafront in the historic city of Plymouth * Small class sizes (average of 6 students per class) * 20 classrooms (all with internet access and many rooms have a view of the sea) * Computer suite (20 terminals) with free internet * Cafeteria serving hot/cold lunches, snacks, and hot/cold drinks * Your own personal tutor to help you adapt to living and studying in Plymouth * IELTS Examination Centre (many of our teachers are also IELTS examiners) Why Plymouth? Plymouth is a city of history, beauty, and pleasure combining the old with the new. In 1620 the Pilgrim Fathers chose Plymouth as the starting point of their historic voyage to Massachusetts, North America in a ship called "The Mayflower". Now, Plymouth is a modern city of 275,000 inhabitants offering a wide range of shops, pubs, restaurants, theatres, sports facilities, etc. The surrounding countryside of Dartmoor and Cornwall is some of the most spectacular and naturally beautiful in Britain. Plymouth's size means that it has a great deal to offer while managing to avoid many of the social problems found in some of England's larger cities. In addition, there are very few language schools in Plymouth. This means that unlike Bournemouth, Brighton, London, Oxford, Cambridge, etc. you will not find many other foreign students in Plymouth. Consequently, you will have far more opportunity to speak English and far less temptation to speak your own language.
