Student Resource Centre:
An important part of learning is having time and a comfortable place for practice and consolidation and our Student Resource Centre provides a quiet and relaxing atmosphere for you to study in before or after your English classes.
We have a range of resources available to help you with your self-study, such as different level work sheets, CDs, DVDs, grammar and vocabulary books and short novels written especially for English language learners. You can also use your laptop or electronic device to study by taking advantage of our free high-speed Wi-Fi internet access.
The café is one of the focus points of Bloomsbury International, where students meet to socialise with food and drinks, relax and watch TV or use their laptops with our Wi-Fi internet access.
The café offers fresh food, snacks and hot and cold drinks at reasonable prices, prepared by our friendly café staff.
Our Theatre Room is used for a variety of activities. It contains several computers and teachers often take their classes there for exam practice, project work and blended-learning lessons. The room is also used for presentations, our Monday assessment and induction for new students, and our weekly TOEIC exams.
