Why choose I AM School of English?

The I Am Summer School of English began in 1995 as an offshoot of the I Am School of English, a private English Academy in Northern Spain. That first year a small group of students travelled to Plymouth in South West England.

In 2004 the decision was made to expand to Exeter, a city 40 miles from Plymouth in the same county, Devon. This has proved most advantageous in that we have been able to split the students into two manageable groups of different ages and this has also meant that we have been able to guarantee quality families, most of them known to us personally, despite taking a larger number of students overall.

What differentiates us from many other summer schools is that our efficient size allows us to control the quality of the course and to offer a particularly personal touch with an emphasis on spoken English and security.

We personally get to know all the students and can thus monitor their individual progress. Our 20 years of experience have enabled us to tighten up on standards and eliminate previously unforeseen issues which are always dealt with quickly and efficiently.
