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.

Hello World!
We are thrilled to announce that we have been awarded accreditation by the British Council!

We look forward to welcoming students to Ely from all over the world to enjoy a memorable experience on our Study Holidays.

The British Council’s rigorous accreditation inspection process ensures that accredited schools provide high standards of teaching, management, resources, environment, facilities, welfare, and care of under 18s. Accreditation is now (post Brexit) necessary for any English Language teaching centre to offer  programmes to students from abroad.
