The English Language Academy at GAU Canterbury offers a unique, intimate language learning and exams preparation experience. We are a small academy with small class sizes offering lessons suited to our learners’ requirements.

We specialise in skills for proficiency, university and workplace certificates such as the Cambridge exams, IELTS and TOEFL. We also provide foundation general English classes.
Our experienced and qualified native speaker teachers know how to maximise time and results. We make your time here as enjoyable as possible. Visits to cultural and historical places, fun pronunciation classes and our book club for vocabulary development are just some of the activities that accompany your classes here.

We are fully accredited by the British Council for the Teaching of English in the UK, British Accreditation Council and part of the Girne American University, a global university providing state-of-the-art campuses and degree courses to students worldwide. The English Language Academy is located within the modern American University building. We are just outside the historic city walls of Canterbury, a minute’s walk from Canterbury High Street and a short walk from the town’s train stations.
