Intensive English course

Best for getting the most out of your time abroad and learning as much English as possible.


Want to learn as fast as possible? Pack more training and support into your English program.

Our Intensive English courses offer you the maximum classroom time each week, with extra lessons focusing on specific skills such as Business English, Academic English, Literature or TOEFL ®/IELTS preparation. You can study for as little as one week, or as much as a year and start at any level.

But don’t forget – at Kaplan, exploration and adventure are part of the learning process, so you’ll still have opportunities to practise your skills in the real world and enjoy your destination at the same time.


Add an upgrade to your Intensive English package for even more classroom time and extra lessons each week. Customize your course to fit your needs: upgrade your whole course or intensify your training for a while and ease back later!*

  • Intensive Upgrade – 6 extra hours language training per week 
  • Super Intensive Upgrade – 9 extra hours language training per week

*Super Intensive Upgrade is only available in the UK. We do not offer either upgrade option in our Torquay or Bath schools.

Guaranteed Progress

We are so confident that your English will improve that if you don’t advance by at least one level of fluency every 10 weeks, in one of our US, UK, Canada or Ireland schools, we’ll give you an extra four weeks at the end of your tuition, absolutely free. *Terms and conditions apply

Real English

Many students struggle with taking their intermediate skills to the next level and applying their language outside of the classroom. Alongside language development, our Real English special skills classes are based around the critical skills viewed as essential to succeed in life, and are available as part of this course.
