“At Atlas our mission is to make every day of every student’s language travel programme and unforgettable life and learning experience.”

“We provide the highest level of service in each aspect of a student’s time with us – their language classes, student support, accommodation, and social and cultural activity programme.”


The Teachers



Academic Manager

“I recruit the dedicated group of teachers we have at Atlas, and am continually working to develop a great teaching and learning environment for everyone who works and studies here.”




“I like using different methodologies and teaching techniques, whatever works for my students. I’m a stickler for pronunciation and integrate it a lot into my lessons.”


“Learning should be engaging and fun, so my classes are filled with games and interactive activities to bring the language to life.”


“I always include grammar study in every class but I also make sure all my classes have a communicative aspect to improve student confidence and fluency.”


“I like to adapt new ideas in language teaching in a creative way to make sure they are suitable for all my students.”



“I like to teach the classes that I would enjoy myself. Not only do my students need to learn but also enjoy their classes. Learning should not be a chore.”


“Teaching is about providing students with life-long language tools that will enrich their linguistic experiences and enable them to interact with both native and non-native speakers alike!”


“I like to focus on broadening students’ vocabulary, particularly idioms, phrasal verbs and collocations.”


The Reception and Office Staff



Front of House, Health and Safety & Student Welfare Manager

Admissions Manager

Accommodation Officer

“I place our students with our best Atlas host families and make sure they feel comfortable and enjoy their stay with us.”
