Don’t take our word for it … see for yourself what our students say about MLS:
“Being a teacher of English I had already made up my mind to look for a place to further my education at a British College and after searching for one on the internet I found the address of MLS College.
The very first contact with the lady responsible for information was helpful, positive and encouraging. It took only a short time to receive an answer to my open questions. So I would say that the support given concerning all the necessary forms that had to be completed was excellent. The first day of class was an interesting mix of being informed about the college and the attractive city of Bournemouth as well as having the chance to attend suitable class meetings to practise my English. Not only was I offered classes to work on my knowledge of English but what was even more enriching in the afternoons was that I could observe various instructors teaching classes at different levels. I was also able to look at a wide range of teaching materials to gain a deeper insight into the variety of language resources. Let me mention that I felt welcome and respected at all times by the staff as well as by other students at MLS College. My host family was helpful and the opportunity to concentrate on my work was guaranteed.
The idea of Erasmus being to widen one’s horizon for working as a teacher successfully was fully realized during my stay.
I am very thankful for this invaluable experience and would add that if you are looking for a place to do some additional further education work I strongly recommend attending a course at MLS College in Bournemouth.
Thank you for the wonderful support !!”
Elfriede (Elfi), Germany, Teacher Development Course, 2018
General English Intensive, 2018
“I'm an Italian student in the Faculty of International and Diplomatic Science in Forli. English is very important for my studies and for future job opportunities so I decided to do an English course abroad. A friend of mine recommended MLS College - she spoke very well of the school, the environment and the town. I did the Intensive English course for 4 weeks. It was my first 'long experience' outside my country and it was one of the best adventures of my life. At MLS you feel at home! The lessons are divided into subjects but you can interact with teachers and with your classmates all the time and you can ask to talk about specific topics and start interesting and fun discussions without problems.
If you want to improve your English and have fun at the same time, I recommend MLS. The town is fantastic, you can see beautiful parks and 5 minutes from MLS you arrive at the sea and you can spend your time on the beach playing volleyball, football or eating something on the sand. I couldn't be more satisfied and I would like to thank all the teachers, the staff and the girls at the front desk.
I met fantastic people inside and outside the school and I'm very grateful to MLS College for giving me such a wonderful experience!”
General English, 2018
“One of the best experiences I ever had! I’m glad to be part of this international ‘MLS family’. Our programme included not only very interesting lessons with highly skilled teachers, but also unforgettable activities and tours, which helped me to feel the real atmosphere and culture of the United Kingdom!
I hope to keep in touch with other students and the college for a long time! Thank you so much!”
Legal Studies and Business Communications, 2018
“We have really enjoyed the Legal Studies course and would recommend it because we have learned a lot. The course is different in MLS because we study a given topic and we are free to discuss it and give our opinions. Often English for Law courses only teach you vocabulary, but here we can talk about the law in our own countries and compare our laws with those of the UK.
The classes are interactive and we are free to express our opinions and have a free discussion.
During the course we visited the law courts here in Bournemouth and attended a trial, which again gave us lots to talk about in class - comparing the UK jury system with our own.”
International Business Communications (IBC30), 2018
"“Finally I received my BEC certificate. I’m so glad I chose MLS to get ready for this exam. At school I found the best teachers and a warm and welcoming atmosphere, it felt like a family and that helped a lot. I would choose MLS again and I will always recommend it to other students. Thanks for all!"
Marketing, Advertising, PR and Business Communications, 2018
“I’m a post-graduate Marketing student in Istanbul. I studied Marketing and Business Communications in MLS for 6 weeks and it was a good chance for me to combine what I learned in my Master’s with the MLS course. I took 3 different classes and all the teachers were helpful, smiling, sincere, and like advisers. Because the classes are not crowded, each student can express his/her ideas clearly and practise English effectively.
MLS College is like a family. Because it’s not a crowded school, everyone knows each other which leads students to become friends easily. Everyone in the college (staff and students) are genial. I’m so glad to be in MLS. My 6 weeks in Bournemouth will be an unforgettable part of my life. Thank you for this amazing experience!”
Tailor Made Executive Course in Business English, 2018
"Thank you MLS College, don’t change anything!
I have just completed a tailor made executive course in Business English and I can say that MLS is a wonderful school where you feel good.
The 2-week full immersion course I did this year was better than the course I did last time, because I had two weeks instead of one. The students of various nationalities that I met were very interesting and nice.
The team of teachers is wonderful. I would like to say thank you more specifically to Brenda, Russell and Shaun.
I recommend both homestay families where I stayed Debbie and Trish are 2 fantastic women… I felt very welcome in both homes. Thank you to both of them.
Finally, thank you to Laura for her support and specifically thank you to Lesley. I hope to come back the next year."
English For Aviation (EA4), 2018
"I'm a pilot in Brazil and English is very important for my job and my life. When I was looking for an English course my agent recommended MLS College in Bournemouth because they specialise in Aviation English.
I have been here for 4 weeks and I have had a really amazing time. Most of my classes have been General English and I have met people from all over the world while I have been working on my grammar and learning new vocabulary! I also had training in English for Aviation and my teacher has really helped me to prepare for the SDEA-ICAO test I have to pass in Brazil. The lessons were a lot of fun and useful at the same time. The teaching techniques are great and I have had so much opportunity to speak and to practise.
Apart from the classes, there is a great atmosphere at MLS. Everyone is really friendly and there are lots of social activities where you can meet new people. I'm very grateful to my 4 special teachers Kevin, Phil, Shaun, Tracy and all the MLS staff. I don't want to go home - it's just been an amazing experience!"
English and IELTS 30, 2018
"I studied in MLS College for 4 weeks. It was very interesting and profitably spent time. Not only did I make new friends here, but also improved my English skills. Although it was my second time here, I enjoyed taking part in extracurricular activities again. I very liked to attend classes, because it really helped me to improve my knowledge in English grammar and skills in listening, writing and speaking as well.
I do recommend to study in MLS College if you want to study in friendly atmosphere and develop your English language skills with professional teachers."
Ana Carolina, Brazil
Vocational Language Course in Marketing & Business Communication, 2018
"My name is Ana Carolina. I am a student of Marketing, Advertising, PR & Business Communications. The course is amazing.
The teacher is very good. Introducing and explaining marketing content in an unusual perspective, which can brighten your eyes and make you think in a different way. The materials and tools used are not only very helpful to theoretical comprehension, but also practical, allowing you to understand today´s market, marketing and business environment.
The atmosphere in classes is great. Small groups are good for interaction between teacher and students, and students among themselves, raising deep discussions and providing more focus on support and catering for individual needs and interests.
I really recommend it!"
Vaclav, Czech Republic
Intensive English (GE30), 2018
“My study was very interesting - I learnt lots. My English is much better than before. The teachers are happy, friendly and assisting. When I arrive at college and talk to the reception staff, I feel very happy, friendly and safe. They are always smiling and helpful. All the school staff are amazing!
I recommend this school to people all around the world – I think MLS is one of the best schools in the world. For me the social programmes is very original and without mistakes and the student services are the best I’ve ever had.”
Vocational Language Course in Legal Studies & Business Communication, 2018
"The Legal Studies course is very motivating and helpful. During the classes I learnt a lot of legal vocabulary that will help me in any future international business. The knowledge that I acquired will improve my CV and help me to find a job in a law firm more easily. The teaching method is very good, dynamic and compact and the teacher is inspiring and approachable. I studied hard and practised a lot to improve my English skills. As a result, I am leaving MLS fully satisfied with my development.
I just want to thank MLS for providing such an amazing course that has broadened my knowledge, that has changed my life and that will make a difference to my career."
International Business Communications (IBC40), 2018
“I studied on the ‘Super-intensive’ Business English course (IBC40) with one-to-one lessons at MLS for two weeks. It was a great experience for me – very good to refresh my knowledge and also a big leap by learning new grammar, vocabulary and expressions. In this course I had the possibility to discuss the topics that are important for my everyday life at work. I have not only learned English, but also very necessary behaviour patterns in meetings, presentations and telephone calls, such as how to handle ‘difficult’ participants or how to run a successful negotiation.
The teachers at the college are very friendly and take the students’ needs seriously. In my one-to-one lessons I could simulate my working day, by acting out in the classroom the situations that I face in reality in my job. It is very helpful to talk these things through and then I can become more confident in these situations.
Of course the practice at the evening events must not be neglected – MLS offers a lot of evening and weekend activities with other students for fun and language practice.
It was two very intensive and challenging weeks, but very useful and highly productive. "
General English (GE30) and International Business Communications (IBC30) , 2017-2018
“I really enjoyed my six-month course I did in MLS College. All the teachers and staff are amazing! You feel like you are at home and everybody cares about your progress and wellbeing. I expected to reach a good English level to improve my career, but I have found more than this in MLS. I discovered that speaking English is enjoyable. I met very nice and interesting people from all over the world with whom I shared ideas, culture and made contacts. I have gained confidence and fluency.
Now I can proudly put 'Advanced' on my CV. It will open up my future work opportunities and it has definitely been a fabulous experience."
Jaeseok and Jihye, Korea

“One of the most precious experiences in our life.”
We’ve spent a wonderful time at MLS over the past six months. Before we came here together as husband and wife, it wasn’t easy to decide to study English abroad in the middle of our job career. However, now we realize it was a right decision since we’ve really enjoyed being here and achieved everything that we wished. Also, we’ve been really happy to meet excellent teachers and staff in MLS. They’re all friendly, professional and competent and helped us a lot to improve our English in numerous ways. Especially when we wanted to study specific subjects, all we needed to do was just talk to them and we got great advice every single time. Based on this experience, we’ll continue to try to maintain our English abilities. We hope we’ll be able to come back to MLS and Bournemouth one day.
Thank you all in MLS! We'll never forget the time we shared!"
Legal Studies & Business Communications (VLS), 2017
“Studying in a foreign country for more than half a year is not an easy decision to make. You should change your friends, habits, and almost everything. Everyone is afraid of doing this for the first time. Especially, if you are alone and not sure that you can handle it.
Staying in a foreign country, does not mean you will be far away from your home. As I have learnt from my experience, your home is not only where you were born, it is also where you enjoy, laugh, and love. You can live with different people from all around the world without prejudice. It is an amazing thing to communicate with people from different countries, and sometimes to understand each other without words.
I have been in Bournemouth and MLS quite a long time, and during this time, I have felt I was at home. I really appreciate that I have been with the friendliest people in the world since I arrived to Bournemouth. All the staff are very professional, open-minded, and friendly. They try to understand how you feel and how they can help you which was very important and I feel it was the perfect decision to choose MLS.
During my experience, I discovered a lot about myself. I really took part in life at MLS from being a student Rep to studying Legal Studies, Business IBC and Communications classes. I have had an invaluable opportunity to improve my skills. I’m very grateful to have been at MLS.
Before I finish, I would like to say thank you for everyone for being a part of my life. Individually, thank you to Christian for being my mentor, best friend, and a teacher for 6 months. To Tracy for her boundless energy in class and smiley gorgeous face every morning. To Russ for supporting the perfect Turkish football team Eskisehirspor and being a wonderful Business Communications teacher. To Barry for being my favourite man in the school. To Mike for his perfect singing classes, and conversation clubs with Star Wars introductions. To David for his amazing academic study help. And finally, thank you Leslie and Sue for their friendly nature and caring attitude.”
International Business Communications (IBC) and English & IELTS (IELTS30), 2017
It was the second time that I chose an English school that improved my language skills. MLS has proved a good option because everybody has a good chance to work in English. I got a lot of help from the teachers, staff and my classmates. I could learn about new, exciting cultures and people. I'll never forget the time in Bournemouth and the time by the sea. If I could give some advice, you have to leave your comfort-zone and discover the world!”
Petra, Czech Republic
FCE and General English (FCE30), 2017
“If you want to spend your money sensibly, invest in your language education like me! I chose MLS International College in Bournemouth because this seaside college is very close to the beach and I could spend my leisure time after classes there. I normally don't live in the city near the sea, so I really enjoyed studying at MLS. In this small family school I felt at home and the lovely staff were always there for me.
Last but not least, I met a lot of nice people from other countries and I would like to see them again. Don't be shy and come to MLS!”
Jifang (Shirley), China

“I’ve spent 6 weeks studying Business English here at MLS and it’s been a very important experience for me. I have learned a lot in the classes and now I will feel more confident speaking English with international clients. The service at MLS is excellent and it feels like home. I’ve met many students from all over the world and, as a result, I feel that I know the world better.”
Juan Esteban, Colombia
Executive Plus (IBC + Tailor Made), 2017
"As I am finishing my 2-week stay at MLS in Bournemouth, I can say that I have experienced both a personal and professional period.
First, I recovered the basis of my Business English by participating in classes with my teachers Tracy and Philip. I have learned a lot from them, especially about collocations and common expressions for the day-to-day workplace. I also learned a lot of vocabulary in these 2 weeks. The most interesting part of my Business English classes was to have the opportunity to share valuable time with students from other nationalities like China, Arabia, Turkey, Germany, Argentina, France and Libya. I want to thank my classmates for being so active during the lessons.
To conclude, I want to emphasise about my experience with Brenda during our one-to-one sessions working together on the strategy of my company. The experience has not been limited to the lessons, but also to the reading she has recommended me and the constant sharing. I personally think we have done very good work together, and I hope not to let my teacher down during the final presentation of my strategic plan.
Thanks a lot again to everybody at MLS. I found you all very kind and willing to help us with anything we might need."

"I am currently doing Level B1+ here at MLS. I am a loved wife, proud mother, maths and physics teacher and a principle of one of the best secondary education schools in my hometown. One might wonder why I chose this particular college. Well, I got to know England before I actually visited it. This all started a while ago when my husband and I became concerned about providing our son, Oleksandr, with the best English language education possible.
At the age of 17 our son decided to become a civil aviation pilot. As you may know, international aviation provides the safest means of transportation around the world through implementing high standards around the globe, one of which is common aviation language - English. In 2012 we encountered MLS College and decided to give it a try. Oleksandr spent one month doing an aviation language course there and loved it so much that we decided to send him to do another course in 2013 and to sit an exam. It was not only about joy, hospitality and professional staff at MLS, it was also about results and achievements. In 2013, my son got ICAO Level 5.
Despite the already high result, he did not stop as the instructors at MLS kept him encouraged and motivated to study even harder. Finally in 2014 he achieved ICAO Level 6, which is quite rare for non-native speakers. On behalf of my son, I would like to thank his teachers for their outstanding commitment to his English language knowledge and career.
I am very proud of my son, but also want him to be proud of me. Therefore, I came to MLS to strengthen my knowledge of English to bring my career as a teacher and school principle to a new level. MLS is a unique educational experience."
Management & Business Communications, 2017
"It was the best time of my life. I have learnt lots of things from MLS and I have met lots of people who are going to be forever with me. I am going to miss all of you. Thanks for everything. I hope, another time, another place, we will see each other again :-) "
English & IELTS 30 / Pre-Masters, 2017
"Six months have passed. Studying at MLS College was one of the most exciting things I've had in my life. Program contents are adequate and materials are very valuable. The library contains books, magazines and publications that help the students. The teachers are spectacular. Many of them 5 stars. Do you want to apply for IELTS exam, or to be prepared for university, or just study English, do not hesitate to come to MLS. Lots of nationalities and you can make a lot of friends. The Bournemouth city is one of the most beautiful and touristy of England and it's only about 2 hours from London. I'm leaving today with a sense of accomplishment, goals achieved and with many praises for our MLS College."
Finance, Financial Services & Business Communictions, 2017

Vocational (Career-relevant English) course in Management and Marketing, 2017
“Let’s go back 6 months... When it was my first day at MLS I was a bit worried because I did not have enough knowledge about Bournemouth and also I did not know how it was here, how my classmates were, how everything was. But now I surely believe that I have improved myself very well. I have had a lot of experience about Marketing, Management and HR. In addition, my English has improved as well.
Time has gone very quickly. I cannot explain how happy I have been. It has been a pleasure to meet everyone at MLS. Thank you very much for your hospitality. Thank you very much for your help.”
Management, Leadership, HR & Business Communications, 2017
"I came to Bournemouth to study in MLS at a friend's suggestion and I have absolutely no regrets about it.All the teachers are good and friendly and the course gave me knowledge which will be helpful in my career in the future.

Marketing, Advertising & PR (Vocational Summer Course), 2017
"Amazing! This is how I can describe my time in MLS. Even being there for only two weeks, it was more than enough to enjoy every minute of the classes, interact with their incredible staff from reception and teachers. If work wasn't calling me back to Brazil, I would certainly stay for a longer time.
Marketing and IBC classes added a lot of useful and applicable knowledge that I will surely take with me to improve my career and studies even now.
Summarising, it doesn't matter if you will have a long or short time in MLS, it will surely be unforgettable!"
International Business Communications (IBC) and 1:1 lessons, 2017
“I had to improve my English skills and I am completely satisfied with my MLS experience. As soon as I arrived, I felt very good, the atmosphere of this school is simply excellent.
All the teachers are very attentive, involved and interested in their work. In my programme, I had the chance to have lunch every day with a different teacher and it was a great experience – we discussed every subject. I also had the chance to do a one-to-one lesson each day. We worked intensively on my pronunciation and it was very useful.
The location of MLS is also perfect, in the city centre. The building is very nice and there are many things to make life easier for students around MLS. And last but not least is the opportunity to meet other students from all around the world. The mix of cultures was just amazing and I’ve learnt a lot about this.
Nothing to add, except that I highly recommend MLS for all these reasons.”

I got a lot of help from the teachers throughout the HND course, which was definitely helpful for my study. Another good thing about this college is that the business tutors have a lot of experience so we learned not only the theory, but also worked on practical case studies. I had an amazing time at MLS College and I can truly recommend this college to everyone.”

"I had a great time at MLS! I was impressed at how fast I became a part of the ‘MLS family’ - I didn’t feel like a student number only. It´s very easy to socialise with other students in the breaks between the lessons. All the students, teachers and the whole staff are very pleasant, friendly and helpful in every situation.
It was fun at MLS as the experienced teachers know exactly how to motivate their students and prepare their lessons carefully to eliminate the weaknesses and improve the English skills. If I go to Bournemouth again, then I’ll definitely also go to MLS International College."
Finance and Financial Services, 2015
“When I decided to come to MLS College I knew I had made a good choice for myself. My teachers were amazing. I had the chance to use my experience and to learn so many things about my subject. Moreover, the social activities were very impressive. It was a lovely 12 weeks for me and I will always remember it.”
General English (GE20), 2015
“Studying English at MLS is an efficient, amusing and unforgettable way of improving the language. All of the teachers and the College staff are well trained to work with foreigners, making everyone feel at ease and comfortable during the class.
As a great way of meeting other students, the college organises different activities after class such as bowling or weekend trips. Staying at a host family as well as sharing the classes with people of different nationalities makes it essential the constant use of the language. You won't only learn about the English culture, but also about others from all around the world.
I recommend this experience to all those who are interested in improving their English while learning about culture, visiting beautiful places and making friends.”
