"I highly recommend Richmond English School to everyone who wants to improve their English and prepare for an IELTS exam. What I like the most in this school is the small number of students in the class and friendly, professional staff. Thank you so much for all of your help, and I will definitely tell my friends home in Hungary about this school!"

Dutch au pair
"I’m very pleased about finding Richmond English School during my time spent working as an au pair in London. The lessons there are very instructive and interesting. But it’s not only text book learning, we also discuss topics to do with London or which are on the news, and have also done some song lyrics which have made the classes really good fun!"
Patricia, from Spain
"I have been studying English in Richmond English School for several months and I strongly recommend it. Being in a small class, with a good text book and a friendly teacher have helped me to improve my English extremely quickly. Also, Tom, the teacher, helped me a lot to prepare for my Cambridge Exam, which I passed. This is a good English school!!"
