Online lessons and Face-to-face lessons

Although there is flexibility with regard to the date and time of the lessons, the number of hours must be booked and paid for in full 10 days before the first lesson. A minimum of 5 hours must be booked and can be extended.

For face-to-face lessons it is recommended that each session be a minimum of 2 hours. The hourly fee for F2F lessons is £47.00 (this includes the cost of room booking).

Payment is either by bank transfer or PayPal. You must cover any transaction costs so that the full amount arrives. If less than 24 hours' notice is given (other than for illness or extenuating circumstances), the lesson cannot be rescheduled and you will be charged for the missed lesson.

If a student does not show up for an online lesson without prior notice of a delay, the teacher will wait for 15 minutes and then close the Zoom lesson and the lesson will be forfeited (unless there are extenuating circumstances) .

There is no booking/registration fee.

The earlier you book (see Ts & Cs below) the more likely you are to get your choice of dates and your accommodation choice especially at busy times in Bath (summer and around Christmas).

All courses include:

  • Level Assessment (first day)
  • Tailored study materials to suit your needs
  • Suggested Social Activity and free time programme (not for English for Busy People)
  • Specific recommendations for your accommodation preferences, and airport transfer information.
  • A friendly, comfortable study environment in walking distance from your accommodation.

Please read the following carefully:

Please note:

You will need to book your own flight, airport transfer and accommodation in Bath.
You will also be responsible for the cost of your excursions and food that is not included in your accommodation costs.
You will also need to pay any admission fees for the teacher on any accompanied trips.
No support can be given for student study visas, if necessary.

Under no circumstances can Englishphile be held responsible for any injury, damage, loss, delay or accident which may occur during a student's stay, or as a result of activities which they may take part in during their stay or whilst travelling to or from their accommodation, or loss of property. Lessons missed by students due to illness or absence will not be refunded. Englishphile is not responsible for a student's personal possessions.


Englishphile does not provide insurance cover for students. It would be highly advisable to obtain personal travel insurance cover against cancellation, accident, illness, or loss of property.


Englishphile cannot accept any retrospective claim or complaint from a student. Problems must be brought to my attention (Englishphile) during a course and I will seek to manage and resolve problems pertaining to your stay and course of study.

Preparation for your trip

Students wanting to be met from Bath bus or train station should inform me of their arrival time and any subsequent change in arrival time. This offer extends as far as 9pm after which time students will be responsible for making their own way to their chosen accommodation in Bath.
