At the Ben Smith Academy we pride ourselves on offering PERSONALISED ATTENTION and are committed to the very highest quality teaching through the adaptation of instruction to the needs of the individual. Our experienced instructors share a common sense of dedication, enthusiasm and PASSION for teaching.

We offer both ENGLISH AND SPANISH AS A FOREIGN LANGUAGE CLASSES . All of our classes can be one-to-one or in groups and are organised by level. Students also receive a free level test before beginning.

Our staff has extensive experience in preparing students for Cambridge University’s Official Exams (KEY, PRELIMINARY, FIRST, ADVANCED, PROFICIENCY), among others.
In addition to our classes, we also offer a comprehensive TRANSLATION AND INTERPRETING services.

Since 2011, we have offered SUMMER ENGLISH LANGUAGE IMMERSION COURSES in Ben’s home city of CHESTER ENGLAND. These courses feature authentic homestays with fully vetted families with whom we have long standing relationships. We also offer immersion courses in IRELAND and NEW YORK.

Bespoke immersion courses are available at any time throughout the year. These can be arranged for individuals or groups and are customised based on the specific interests and needs of the students.

Additionally, we are able to place students in Irish secondary schools and British boarding schools for STUDY ABROAD PROGRAMS, as well as organise INTERNATIONAL WORK INTERNSHIPS.

These courses are offered in cooperation with our sister company, Ben Smith Educational Travel.
