Description of centre

Capital School of English is a small, family-run language school a stone's throw from Cardiff Castle and the beautiful Bute Park in the vibrant city centre of Cardiff, recently voted the Best UK City for young people to live in, by the Independent. Capital was founded in 2014 and accredited by the British Council in March 2015.
Although the school is new, its management team have more than 40 years combined experience in the training field. We aim to provide a professional service together with personal attention that will make Capital School of English and Cardiff a serious and productive academic environment and also a home from home. Our main priorities are:
Excellent customer service
Courses designed to suit student needs
Clear and careful monitoring of student progress
Comprehensive academic and pastoral support
We have a range of courses for adult students (16+) which we run throughout the year in General English and examination preparation for IELTS and the Cambridge ESOL main suite examinations (FCE & CAE) for which we are an approved examination preparation centre. We also offer individual tuition and tailor-made courses for closed groups of 8 or more students, both adult (16+) and young learners (11+).
Our classes are small with a maximum of 12 and an average of 8 students per class and we have a great multinational mix of students throughout the year. As extra support for our students we provide:
A Grammar Clinic overseen by the Academic Manager
Weekly Conversation meetings at a popular local café
A regular Social Hour for students to use their English while making friends and engaging in different activities
A full and varied social programme
Accommodation to suit your needs
Airport transfers
Come and join us in the Welsh capital city of Cardiff, a truly cosmopolitan city welcoming over 11 million visitors and 65 thousand students every year, with its excellent shopping centres, top-class entertainment venues and world-famous sporting arenas.
