Prime English 50+

English for older adults


These 2-week courses are designed for students over the age of 40

who prefer to study and socialise with people of their own age. 

The historic city of Salisbury, with restaurants, bars, shops, theatre

and cinema in easy-walking distance, is a perfect study location for more mature students.Older adult class
