Welcome to LINES!

For 25 years we have been providing high quality academic language courses where students “Learn and Smile” in the same language!

Our English courses in Downe House (Berkshire), Queenswood (Hertfordshire) and our French courses in Valbonne (Côte d’Azur) are designed to engage and inspire students to improve their language skills whilst making friends and having fun at the same time.

We offer an exciting range of excursions to destinations across the UK or the French Riviera and a programme of sports and activities that is second to none. We also offer our Pro-Activities professional coaching in Football, Tennis, Golf, Horse Riding and Music, as well as experiences such as Musicals in London’s Theatreland, Harry Potter Studio Tours and Thorpe Park. 

For our students learning French at the French Riviera, we have amazing outings such as Zipline, Catamaran, Monaco, Grasse…

From arrival to farewell, our highly-trained staff promise to look after
every student as an individual, make sure they feel welcome and safe and
that they leave us having had the summer of their lives.

We look forward to meeting you!
