Welcome to the Globe!

The Globe English Centre is a family-run English language school and has been welcoming students from all over the world to Exeter since 1978. We are open all year round and offer small, intensive English language classes for adults, as well as children from the age of 6. There is also an exciting, active social programme for all of our students, discovering the breath-taking Jurassic coast and the surrounding areas, as well as sports and social evenings.

We are proud to have been recognised for strengths in 8 areas in our latest British Council inspection, which places the Globe in the top 20% of all UK English language schools. Globe is also a member of English UK and International Association of Language Centres (IALC) and an accredited Trinity exam centre.

One of Britain’s safest cities, Exeter is the ideal location to combine learning English with making new friends: a friendly, relaxed atmosphere, expert teaching, personal attention and a pleasant and safe environment in the city centre. Capital city of Devon county, Exeter is located just over 2 hours by train 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.

The Globe is an excellent choice if you want to 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!

The Globe team.

“The teachers were very kind and competent and helped me a lot to reach my personal goals. Studying in small groups with International students was nice and efficient. I stayed with a host family.
