COVID-19 (Coronavirus) – Temporary School Closure
Following government guidance in relation to schools and colleges in the UK, MLS has been required to close. The College was closed at 3:15pm on Friday 20 March as a result of the Covid 19 outbreak.
We have not yet been provided with any information about when the college will be able to reopen.
We are therefore placing all future bookings on hold, without charge and pending any further announcement from MLS once we have more information.
You can still contact us through the normal channels during the period where the College is closed.
We thank you for your patience and understanding and send you our best wishes during these difficult times.

Catching up with Past-Students
Jihye and Jay studied at MLS for 6 months in 2017-2018 so they were here at MLS for Christmas two years’ ago!
It was great to see them again in Korea and to catch up with what they’ve been doing since they left the college.
What are they looking at in the photos? It’s a video “Hello!” from MLS teachers! We don’t forget our students – they are still very important to us.
Laura from Switzerland is studying at MLS on a 12-week exam preparation course for Cambridge English: Advanced.
She is also a great asset to MLS in helping to organise many social activities, which is a great way to meet people and practise your English. Her friends include French, Italian, Korean, Turkish, Saudi and Chinese – sorry about the friends we have missed out!
Today Laura’s parents, Susi and Roger, arrived for the weekend so we saw the family reunion!
