Welcome to the Globe

The Globe English Centre is a very special place. I have enjoyed running this school in the beautiful city of Exeter since 1978. My son Anton is now my assistant and follows in the family tradition.

Capital city of Devon county, Exeter is 2h from London and 20 minutes from the sea. The region is the top British tourist destination, thanks to its rich mixture of culture, beauty, charm and proximity to some of the best beaches in Britain. Surrounded by spectacular countryside, Exeter combines the excitement of a large city with the friendliness of a close community.

One of Britain’s safest cities, Exeter is the ideal location to combine learning a language with making new friends.

The Globe English Centre offers small, intensive classes, an excellent choice of courses and social activities, expert teaching, a friendly, relaxed atmosphere, personal attention and a pleasant and safe environment in the city centre.

You will make progress in English and improve your career prospects as well as learn about different cultures, meet new friends and have a wonderful time.

We look forward to meeting you and hope to make your stay an unforgettable experience.
