Ex Student

Ghalia, Syria
“During my 3 months stay in London I had the opportunity to be introduced to many interesting things that made my visit useful and wonderful. First i improved my English in quickly way and during very short time that help me to increase my mark in IELTS from 5.5 to 6.5 i think that very good deal. In addition I became familiar with new places such as Cambridge, Bath, Brighton that added a lot of knowledge to my amazing visit and all this was due to my participation in many activities organised by the College and sure I gained a lot of new friends from different nationalities. This was the first time I traveled alone without my family so I was very afraid from this experience but during my first day I was able to get rid of this feeling due to the great and excellent staff which made me feel if I were in my country with my family. Finally I advise all my friends to travel to Kensington Academy to study and for me  I hope i can do it again!”

“When I think about London, I remember Notting Hill and Kensington Academy. Without this school I wouldn’t have all these great memories and experiences. My wish was to get my English level to a high standard and at KAE it came true. I took part in the different social programmes with Laura and I made friends fast and built strong friendships. The activities were also great for expanding my knowledge of London. Going to classes was easy with motivation form great teachers who helped me to prepare for my IELTS exam. KAE supported me in lots of different ways from giving me accommodation, to support throughout my studies, making my stay hassle free. At KAE you meet people from all over the world and it really is an adventure. I will take this experience and remember it for life.”

“Hi I’m Débora from Brazil. I’m 21 and studied in KAE for 1 month with my brother. I definitely recommend this school. The team is amazing, the teachers clarify learning, and I made many friends of various nationalities. We loved the hospitality of the citizens of London, the atmosphere, parks, ease of transportation, nightlife, pubs, museums. I’m sure the learning I had during this time in KAE will be useful in my professional and personal life.”

 Pei-Yun "Miko" Pei-Yun, Taiwan
“Learning a new language can be very hard, especially when your learning in your home country, so when i came to London to study at Kensington Academy all the teachers are very kind and have individual teaching styles. Sometimes they are not just teachers, but friends, sisters, or even parents. They not only care about your English level they also care about your welfare. I have never known learning English to be so much fun here at the Academy, I’ve not only learnt a new language but I’ve also learnt a not of new experiences.”


Anis  Anis, Algeria
“Kensington Academy was the first door that i knocked to learn English, and I am very thankful to all Kensington staff and teachers that do their possible to give you the right information with the easiest way they can. When i first came to London i didn’t know a word of English, after 6 months of studies in this prestigious college I got a 6 in IELTS which is one of the hardest exams in English. As well as being in the social program that is an amazing experience to meet new people and to discover history and places that you might never know!”

“I am very pleased and proud that I am studying in Kensington Academy. I’ve really improved my English over the time I’ve been here. I am very grateful to all the teachers that helped to support my studies. I never thought I would learn so much when I arrived here at Kensington Academy. I was very nervous when I first arrived, and Anita – my teacher – supported me to be very free and open, her praise helped me to build my confidence. She is an excellent teacher!”

The teachers are really supportive which gives us confidence and it’s encouraged me to do my best.”
