Imagine everything you could do with the English level you've always wanted...

After finishing a General English course you will leave us with the ability to communicate effectively both in formal and social environments.

Our goal is simple: to improve all aspects of your spoken and written English. We encourage you to speak as much as possible in class, placing special emphasis on pronunciation, intonation, and clear spoken English. Students are also asked to do regular written exercises to improve grammar and syntax.

We offer both intensive courses (either in the mornings or afternoons) and part-time General English courses (mornings, afternoons, evenings and weekends).

What they think about Richmond English School:

Alice, from Italy


"I attended Richmond School for 7 months, and it offers the opportunity to improve your English by working on all aspects of the language. The number of students per class isn't high, but there is always the opportunity to make new friends. The school manager Alessandra is very sociable and always available. I'd definitely recommend this school!"

Rafael, from Germany
