Torquay is known as the ‘The English Riviera’, famous for its beaches, palm trees and warm climate. In September 2007 the English Riviera received international UNESCO recognition for its rich geological, historical and cultural heritage and was welcomed into both the European and Global Geopark Networks.
Torquay has more attractions than any other seaside town in the UK, numerous exciting events throughout the year and plenty of opportunities for sports, particularly water sports.
One time of my life - really enjoyed learning and refreshing my English at TIS and at my lovely homestay. There is a lot to explore arround Torquay. I would like to come back.
I really recommend everyone to study in this school. If you want to speak English language very well it will be great to join them. Friendly staff, very helpful you will feel you are in your house with your family.
I'd recommend TIS to everyone. I've had a 5-star course.
