About Sels - The School

Sels College has taught English in small groups of 5 to 9 and on a one-to-one basis since 1975. Situated in the heart of London, near the Royal Opera House, it is accredited by the British Council and enjoys an international reputation for the excellence of its courses and friendliness.

It is probably the only school that charges non-executive fees for teaching English in small groups of 5 to 9, with an average of 6. It is a personal and caring school, where every student gets individual attention.

The students are taught in a friendly atmosphere. A large number of the students come from word-of-mouth recommendation.

There is strong interaction between teachers and students resulting in a lot of Speaking and Listening. The teachers are professional in their work and are sympathetic towards the students' needs and difficulties.
