The Prime Experience (50 years+)

A special course for those in the ‘prime of life’ aged 50 years plus. This Experience combines 15 hours per week of English lessons in multinational classes (maximum 12 students) with many exciting experiences in London specially chosen to interest mature learners.

Details & Highlights

If you are aged 50 years and over and want a very different way to experience London, then the Prime Experience is ideal for you.  You will practise your English during your multinational group lessons and during the activities and excursions and you will also have the opportunity to discover different aspects of London often not experienced by tourists.

We include guided walks, entrances to famous buildings, visits to ancient pubs and even a very special ‘afternoon tea’ in splendid surroundings.  We vary the timetable according to the time of year so you experience the best London has to offer according to the season. You will have three afternoon or evening activities each week and we even include a weekend trip outside London each Saturday.  You’ll also have time to arrange your own visits and catch up on your shopping.  Theatre tickets can be added as an optional extra.

You can choose to take the Prime Experience for either 1 or 2 weeks. If you would like to have your Experience sessions 1:1 with the trainers, you can book for any time of year.   There are also eight dates during the year when you can enjoy the Prime Experience as part of a group and get to know other mature learners from round the world.

We are also very happy to organise special Prime Experience courses for closed groups.
