Covid-19 Pandemic: following UK government orders, all schools in UK had to close on 20 March 2020, for an indefinite period. We were very sad to close our wonderful school and we hope to re-open as soon as we are permitted. We are offering online courses instead with our same teachers, though different hours and fees from our normal courses. Please email us for more information.

Please note that until we can re-open our school, the courses, accommodation, activities and services mentioned on this website are not available.  

Central Language School, Cambridge, is accredited by the British Council and is a small, friendly, city-centre English language school. 

Our aim is to give you a warm welcome and an excellent opportunity to learn English in a caring, friendly atmosphere. Our courses, from Beginner to Advanced level, run throughout the year. We also offer exam preparation. We only teach adults (from a minimum age of 18). 

The School is just 3 minutes' walk from the central bus station and near many restaurants, shops and the colleges of the University of Cambridge. Students from more than 90 different countries have studied with us and there is usually a good mix of nationalities and professions in the school.

The School was founded in 1996 by a group of Christians in Cambridge.
