The Language Teaching Centre in Eastbourne offers you the chance to Study English in the home of a Duke, a unique location for your English language experience.

LTC Eastbourne is in a beautiful 18th Century mansion that used to be home to the Dukes of Devonshire.

Set in its own 10-hectare park, our school is just 15 minutes’ walk from the centre of Eastbourne and from the beach. Eastbourne is a thriving holiday resort that attracts over four million visitors every year and is located just 90 minutes from London.

LTC is a large but very friendly school, that runs English language courses for adult students and courses for closed groups all year round. We also run a residential summer school for young learners age 10-16.

We welcome students from more than 30 countries every year.

We are accredited by the British Council, certified by the Independent Schools Inspectorate and members of English UK.  We pride ourselves on the quality of our services and the caring attitude of our staff.  All our teachers have a recognised English language teaching qualification.
