We hope that members will join and encourage teachers and homestay families and all their contacts to join.

The Home Secretary, Alan Johnson, announced changes to the rules for International Students wishing to study in the UK yesterday.
Further to the articles that were published in the UK press at the weekend relating to student visas, we would like to reassure all agents and students that this is only at the proposal stage and does not come into effect immediately.
At the moment all Tier 4 visas are still being processed under the existing rules. All entitlements for students with a Tier 4 GSV remains unchanged.
We will post an update as soon as the rules have been revised.
Politicians, journalists, bankers and World Cup footballers have all improved their language skills at the London School of English during the last 98 years.
From 22 February 2010, anyone who applies to study in the UK under Tier 4 of the points-based system must have a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) from their prospective sponsor (educational institution).
