Regent was one of the earliest groups of English language schools in the UK. The first school, Regent London, was established in 1964 by passionate British Council teacher David Mariano who wanted to run a proper school, with proper teachers and proper courses, in sharp contrast to the poorly organised schools he had seen first hand. A course with Regent can change your life - providing you with the knowledge, skills and performance in a second language which help you to excel in your job, win a promotion or a place at university.
These courses are designed to have an impact on the present and future life of the learner in an international environment. The skills training session provides the practice that students need according to their study goals, such as pronunciation, business English or study skills.
