Language School Bournemouth — Eurocentres: Golden prospects!
What connects the composer Antonio Vivaldi with Bournemouth? In his most famous piece, the Four Seasons, he awakens burbling spring brooks, refreshing summer rain, an autumn smell of moss and the fresh falling snow of winter. When you enjoy Bournemouth’s varying seasons, the experience is similar. The small coastal town is in fact a wonderful destination for your language trip whatever thetime of year!
Learn English in the midst of a natural setting that is more beautiful and diverse than virtually any other. Cold winters invite you to drink hot tea and make small talk in English in the Winter Gardens. The spring awakening in the forests around Bournemouth provide a magical spectacle. Or, enjoy the summer sunshine and the unforgettable view of the sea whilst sipping cool drinks. Whenever you decide to come, you couldn’t ask for a better language stay. Improve your English in this southern English coastal town and benefit from the first-class range of courses on offer at Eurocentres.
Let yourself be carried away – both in Bournemouth and in the surrounding area! You can get there really easily by plane. Connections from mainland Europe fly to Bournemouth or Southampton International Airports. The journey by train is also really pretty, and with the green, wooded countryside flying past you is sure to put you in the right mood for your language stay in the south of England. From London and its airports, it will take you an hour and 45 minutes by train. Apart from that, buses run daily throughout the well-developed road network in the south of England, bringing you directly from Britain’s capital city.
Sightseeing on your language stay in Bournemouth
Be enchanted by the wonderful show Bournemouth’s nature puts on. In late spring, newborn fawns can be seen in the forests. In summer, miles of sandy beaches – called The Golden Coast due to its Mediterranean atmosphere – provide a great opportunity to practise your English under a parasol. Bournemouth Pier is a popular tourist destination where you can observe windsurfers whooshing past. Or, you can get active yourself at the RockReef Activity Centre, with many activities, including the PierZip. The zip line lets you fly over the water right up to the beach. Later in the year the southern English coastline develops a cool but refreshing appeal. Trips offered by Eurocentres Language School will help you to explore all the seasonal treasures of this coastal town.
In harmony with this beautiful town and its surroundings, Eurocentres Language School is situated in a peaceful and idyllic park. The rooms inside the newly renovated Victorian building are flooded with light. The 14 bright classrooms and lecture room create a refreshing and motivating environment in which you can fully concentrate on making progress in your learning. There is also a learning centre with 14 computers available for self-study. The friendly atmosphere of the student lounge and café contribute to the comfort and interaction among the students. As a result, learning the English language becomes secondary, almost as if it were a casual leisurely pursuit. You will get an instinctive feel for the vocabulary and grammar– along with a few new friendships.
English in everyday life
Getting out into the town to practice your new-found language skills is a breeze, given the school’s central location. In winter, numerous venues throw their doors open, inviting you to come in and socialise. Each year, Bournemouth’s famous skating rink gets a little bit bigger – and more popular. At the start of the year, on the other hand, spring fever comes into bloom, attracting you to the forest trails. In autumn, walks and long conversations are a real pleasure for the soul.
Whenever you decide to visit Bournemouth, you can be sure of a comfortable place to stay. One option for accommodation is our lovely host families near the school. Depending on your preference, the accommodation can be with a family with children, a single person or a retired couple. Of course, the host families meet high standards which we check on a continual basis. In addition to a comfortably-furnished bedroom, you will always have access to a quiet place to study. Take a look behind the doors of Bournemouth and discover the town and its residents personally, giving your feel for the language a massive boost.
Feel good amongst like-minded people
In addition, you also have the opportunity to stay in the Eurocentres student halls of residence. Conversations with like-minded people in the common rooms and in the kitchen, or a little chat in the hallway, are just part of everyday life. This way, you will quickly become more proficient in your skills using English as a second language. The short 15-minute journey to school will leave you enough leisure time not just to make progress linguistically but also to get to know language students from all over the world. The modern rooms at the beautiful Eurostay Beach Student Hotel create just the right feel-good atmosphere. Whether you choose a host family or a student hall of residence – at Eurocentres everyone gets top-class accommodation.

A typical day at Eurocentres
Beatriz from Brazil loves Bournemouth. At the age of 20, she prepared for the IELTS examination with a language course at Eurocentres Bournemouth. Now, two years later, she has come back with the aim of improving her business English. She is staying with the same host family as before, who took her to heart from the very beginning. Today, she has travelled to school by bus, as she does every morning. Now it is the morning break. Beatriz sits with her classmates in the sunny garden drinking tea and chatting happily. The main subject of discussion is, of course, yesterday evening’s event organised by the school: an evening volleyball competition on the beach followed by a small party so everyone could watch the fireworks at 10pm. The event made a lasting impression and the young women chat about it enthusiastically.
Kim now joins in – a businesswoman in her late 20s from Germany who has become a good friend of Beatriz in the last few days. Kim has taken the opportunity of the break to discuss with the Centre Manager the possibility of lengthening her stay. She walks towards Beatriz smiling widely and with her thumbs up: the Centre Manager helped to make her wish come true. Now, the two language school friends will be able to enjoy the trip to the Jurassic Coast organised by the school together next week. They are already wondering whether they will find any dinosaur fossils there. It’s certainly possible.
