LSI Portsmouth English Language School

We are open and looking forward to welcoming you back!
Your safety is our priority – our team has worked hard to ensure we are Covid-secure in our school, our families and residences. If you need to quarantine on your arrival in the UK, you can stay with one of our host families or in our student house – and follow our lessons online.

We understand that it is important to give you flexibility and peace of mind when you book an English language course. We have therefore changed our terms so you can book with confidence.
