Our Mission 
Our mission is to help students learn language at the quickest possible time. All our activities are designed exclusively to enhance their language learning capability 
Why Us? 
At Colchester Language Academy our students are immersed into a fully supportive environment from the very beginning. This allows them to develop their communicative skills in the shorter term, improving their self-confidence, language autonomy and allowing them to be more in command of their own learning process. 
 
Our approach combines the more formal aspects of language teaching with the acquisition of communicative skills in naturalistic settings.
