Language School Cambridge — Eurocentres: Learn English in an academic atmosphere
Cambridge has no sky-scrapers, no white sandy beaches with azure blue water, and no notorious nightlife either; yet the English county town in Cambridgeshire is famous throughout the world for education and learning. The University of Cambridge is one of the most popular, oldest, most prestigious and simply best universities in the world. That makes it a perfect environment for Eurocentres Language School.
Cambridge University’s 31 colleges are scattered throughout the town. Many of the buildings are of considerable age and with their historical façades create an atmosphere stamped by learning and teaching that cannot be evaded. True to the university motto “From this place, we gain enlightenment and precious knowledge”, at a Eurocentres language stay in Cambridge you get to benefit from this sentiment, which envelops the whole town and is also reflected in the superb range of language courses on offer at our language school.
The Enlightenment – What to see and how to get there
Cambridge more than lives up to its image as an English county town. The city’s well-structured dimensions make it possible to explore the wonderful countryside and discover its many historical buildings on foot. King’s College with its imposing gothic chapel and Trinity College with its main entrance, the Great Gate, that really has no equal, are not to be missed. Also worth a visit is the university’s botanical garden. It is one of the most important gardens in the whole of Great Britain, and with around 8,000 different types of flora, it has a green radiance that inspires awe in every language student. After all, Eurocentres Language School is just a few metres south of the garden, which covers more than 16 hectares.
Getting to Cambridge
Just as the botanical gardens are close to the language school, Cambridge is close to the English capital. London with its many airports and train stations is only about 80 kilometres away from Cambridge, making it the perfect starting point for your language stay in Cambridge. In just under an hour, train services will take you through the suburbs of London to the railway station of Cambridge, which stands for enlightenment through knowledge like no other city in Great Britain. But the city’s own Cambridge Airport also offers you the option of getting quickly to the place where English language learning comes face to face with the right atmosphere and prestigious surroundings.
The knowledge – Eurocentres Language School
What better place for a journey through all the facets of the English language could there be than one of the most famous and coveted university towns in the world?

The language school, with its students from all over the world, is highly multicultural and is also centrally located. Just a 15-minute walk will take you to the centre of this very traditional city, where you will find an academic atmosphere and the stately buildings of the college, some of which date back to the 13th century.

Here,light and an international atmosphere set the tone and allow language learning to become an all-encompassing enrichment of knowledge.
The most important thing – Accommodation and lodging
As impressive as the halls of the venerable colleges in Cambridge may be, for language students the most important thing, after academics, is accommodation, which will offer you a home away from home. It is a haven, a place of relaxation, of self-study and of privacy; everything that is really important when it comes to accommodation in your chosen host family. You will also be able to fully immerse yourself in the British way of life. You can experience up close the unique aura that emanates from Cambridge and its residents. English breakfast, tea time, small talk about the typical English rainy weather; staying with a host family turns you into a genuine resident of Cambridge. At Eurocentres to make your stay the most comfortable for you, you can choose whether you would like to stay with a family with children, in a single household or with a retired couple.
Student hall of residence, Cambridge
As an alternative to staying with one of our host families is lodging in the Eurocentres student hall of residence. It is just as multicultural here as it is in the language school itself; after all, language students from all over the world come together here. Thus, as a student city, this form of housing has become a symbol for Cambridge: a place of pilgrimage for those eager to learn from all over the world. But even in the student hall of residence’s modern rooms and with all the friendly socialising going on, there is still room for each language student to develop their language skills on a personal level. Ultimately, it is not only important for us that everyone learns English to the best of their ability, but also that they always maintain their well-being throughout their language stay.

A typical day at Eurocentres Cambridge
Like many students at the language school in Cambridge, Christina from Austria lives in a student hostel. She has inexpensive accommodation there with her own room with shower and WC. In this peaceful location, you can reach everywhere on foot or by bike. The distances between the accommodation and the school vary from 15 to 25 minutes by bike. Christina attends the business English course. She is very impressed by the high quality of the course. You really notice here that the teachers have worked at the school for a long time and are real professionals at their job – particularly with the various exam preparatory courses. It is not only the many, beautiful, historic university buildings, well maintained green spaces and parks that appeal to her – Cambridge also has another, more modern side. This can be seen in the high-tech industry, excellent sporting facilities, theatres, cinemas, huge range of restaurants and pubs, shopping opportunities and nightclubs. In Cambridge, plenty of variety is absolutely guaranteed.
The Eurocentres language school in Cambridge looks over the botanical gardens of the University of Cambridge. A green feast for the eyes!
