Lyons Languages is a small independent language school in Ely, just north of Cambridge in the east of England. We offer classes in English Language, Italian and Spanish, and English Study Holidays.


Because of the ongoing restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are unable to welcome international students this year.

Meanwhile, we continue to offer part-time English and Italian tuition, both on-line and face-to-face. As ever, don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

We have moved!

We have a new home! - we are now based at 41 Forehill, Ely (Basement Office). We have our own dedicated classroom, ready to welcome students back for face-to-face classes. 

Directions: come through the gates at No. 41 and turn left at the rear of the building and down the external stairs. Parking available.
