Whilst you are improving your English you can also concentrate on developing your skill as a musician and learn the specialist vocabulary that is needed. There is a proven link between learning a language and learning music and it improves your brain! We can take you up to examination standard for your playing. A specialist music teacher will provide the training you require for your chosen instrument whilst supporting the language needs you have whilst learning.

English for Young Learners


Education Matters have recently set up a collaboration with Camden Lodge School of English to offer courses specifically for young learners which is their specialism.

If you would like to learn in a small group with an experienced and engaging teacher then this is the course for you. You will be able to meet other students in your group or to learn with your friends. 


You will be able to learn in whichever way you choose. Either the more traditional method using drill and reading and writing exercises to improve your structural understanding or using the communicative method which will help to develop your fluency.


Either way, for teenage learners this is the best way to learn. If you require one to one lessons these can also be offered. For more information contact Marilla Miles Wilson at the Camden Lodge School of English.
