The level is determined by a placement test. The classes are held in the morning. Once a week there is a Lesson Out in the museum or in York Cathedral. Teachers encourage an interactive approach and use authentic materials such as songs and film extracts. Essays are used to practise writing and signs, menus and news are used to practise reading.

Melton College has welcomed students from all over the world since 1963. We are a family-run school and pride ourselves on individual attention and ensuring all our students get the same welcome, the same facilities and the same great experience! We are based in York, the capital of the North and England's best historic city! York has 200 years of history going back to the Romans and is now one of Europe's top tourist destinations. The city is also an major education centre and (also important) a top choice for shopping trips!

At the College we welcome students from 10 on our junior courses in Winter, Easter and October and from 11 in the Summer. We run General English for adults and offer specialist exam preparation for FCE, CAE and IELTS. We are a major exam centre and the only IELTS centre in York. We also run our Gold Courses for students aged 40+, a great mix of tourism and language learning. We plan all our courses for individuals but also welcome small groups. York is safe, great value, friendly and easy to reach - just 2 hours from London- and a great base to explore the UK. Edinburgh is only 2.5 hours away.
