One-to-One English Lessons, Private Accommodation, Meals, Activities … Everything Included

Our residential immersion centre, Riversdown House, just over an hour from London is your ideal training environment for your intensive English course. We specialise in providing the best English language training for professionals and business executives from all over Europe and the rest of the world.

The Riversdown experience is much more than just intensive English training; we also cover everything from your airport transfer, private on-site accommodation, all meals and refreshments to leisure facilities and daily social activities where you practise your newly acquired skills.

We have learned from over 40 years of experience in executive language training that a positive learning environment which maximises your energy and motivation is the key to your success: the rapid improvement of your English language abilities and the best possible return on your investment.

Our clients have told us that their colleagues are amazed how much progress they make with their English language and communication skills in so little time at Riversdown, and that a short, intense course with us is worth a much longer time elsewhere.

English Immersion - Intensive English Learning All day Every Day

You are completely “immersed” in an English-speaking environment throughout the day, actively practising your skills inside and outside of your classes. And after a full day of one-to-one English lessons with your expert teachers, meals and activities, you can enjoy our inclusive gym, unwind with a game of tennis, play a round of golf, network with your fellow professionals or simply relax in our authentic Finnish Sauna.

Not only will an Intensive English course at Riversdown be one of the most effective learning experiences you will have ever had, you will also discover it to be one of the most satisfying.

We are confident that your experience with us will be as unforgettable as the English you learn, and your newly enhanced communications skills will benefit your international professional career. English is the most important and widespread means of international communication across many global industries and organisations, so improving your language skills through an intensive English course is one of the best possible investments for your future success.
