Bayswater College is a prestigious language centre that was established in 1973. For such a long time, the school has provided students with high-quality language programmes and exciting social and cultural activities. The founders of Bayswater believe that travel, adventures, interactive classes and intercultural communication contribute to effective language learning. Our teachers use a communicative approach giving students many opportunities to talk in class. It helps to grow in confidence to use English and develop communicative skills. Our programmes are aimed at ongoing language learning not only in the classroom but also outside it. We offer special activities and excursions to help students practice the English language exploring local landmarks and culture, and participating in diverse entertainment events.
