Richard Language College is one of the oldest schools in Bournemouth. Richard Organisation was founded in 1928 by Monsieur Richard, a teacher who wanted to give young learners the opportunity to better their lives through the experience of learning English in England. Richard Language College was then established in 1964. We pride ourselves on both our quality of teaching and the care we provide for our students. The college is located a 15-minute walk from the town centre. The college is close to Meyrick Park and there are a number of international restaurants and small shops in the area.
The school buildings are surrounded by trees and offer a comfortable environment to study in. Richard Language College became the IELTS Test centre for the Bournemouth area in 1994. IELTS is an internationally recognised English test necessary to gain entry to UK and other English speaking countries’ universities. We currently hold the test at least once a month for both the academic and general tests. Our language school was last inspected by the British Council in 2020 and met the high standards required for accreditation. We are also a member of English UK and English UK South. Richard Language College runs a wide range of English language, exam preparation and professional development courses lasting from 1 week to an academic year. We also run teacher development courses that are approved for Erasmus+ funding along with Pathways programme at our college. Our maximum class size of 12 students (15 in high season), along with our quality teaching team will help you to reach your full potential. We are a very friendly school and try our best to ensure you enjoy your time with us.
We look forward to welcoming you soon.
