We have taken the opportunity that the lock-down has provided to update our trusty old website. Please have a look around and let us know if you have any comments.
We are back working in schools having carefully considered the safety of our students and colleagues. Please read our Covid-19 update for answers to common questions. It is especially useful if you are thinking of booking but are unsure where things stand. Alternatively, please have a look at our Coronavirus Policy for information on how we will ensure people's safety during the delivery of our programmes.
TO OUR FRIENDS AND COLLEAGUES AROUND THE WORLD
A Word of ThanksFirstly, we would like to thank teachers in all our partner schools for their fantastic support during the current period. We hope you, your families and your students are keeping safe and well.
We would also like to express our heartfelt gratitude to the guest houses and hotels who regularly accommodate our teaching staff. Thank you for your understanding and flexibility – it is an extremely difficult time for us as a company and we know you too must be facing a similar situation.
Current BookingsIf you have a course booked in the next month or so then we should already have been in contact to discuss your options and possible postponement and to agree alternative course dates later in the year if necessary.
For all future courses we will contact you closer to the time, before committing any upfront expenses, so that we can make all the necessary arrangements. It will also allow us, if necessary, to discuss postponement and alternative dates. It should also avoid any cancellation fees should the course need to be cancelled.
Booking New CoursesIf you are a school that regularly runs an English in Action programme, please submit your booking form as usual. This does not require any financial commitment on your part and will allow us to plan our courses in the most organised and efficient way. If the current situation with COVID-19 persists much longer than anticipated, we will liaise with you closer to the time to make a decision about whether to confirm, postpone or cancel the course.
