Latest News

We will always post the latest news regarding LLE and the COVID-19 pandemic here first, so keep checking to see our updates.


13 April 2021 - UK confirms 'traffic light' entry system.

The UK government has announced that when international travel resumes, a 'traffic light' system will be used, with countries being given green, amber or red status.

The provisional start date of this measure is May 17th, but this has not yet been confirmed.

The new green category will have no isolation requirements on arrival to the UK, although pre-departure and post-arrival COVID tests will still be required.

Arrivals from amber-designated countries will have to quarantine for 10 days, and take two tests. Arrival from countries listed as red will be banned except for UK residents and citizens.

Announcement of the country lists will be on 5 May.

This is great news for our summer students, as we're hoping to be able to go ahead with courses with no quarantine restrictions! Watch this space for more information.

When arriving in the UK, all passengers are required by law to quarantine for 10 days and take the two tests included in their travel test package. If either one of these post-arrival tests is positive, they must quarantine for a further 10 days.

COVID-safe stays

Living Learning English has been working exceptionally hard on our safeguarding practices and risk assessments to ensure that every person in our care is fully safeguarded and all potential risks to both teacher and student are minimised. We are confident that the measures that we have put in place are the best they can be and we are proud of the accreditations and quality standards we have achieved.

LLE is accredited by AEGIS to Gold Standard and has adopted the AEGIS Covid-19 Safe Charter.

LLE is a member of Safe Schools UK

LLE has been approved by Visit Britain as 'Good to Go' by meeting the highest standards set by the tourism industry.

Quality stays with Quarantine

We have excellent teachers all over the UK who can accept students for a 1:1 home tuition course who are fully trained to offer a high-quality, safe and enjoyable experience with quarantine. This means your students will be ready to start at a language school, boarding school or university fully quarantined after 14 days (or 5 days with COVID test) and adapted to living and studying in the UK, or to continue their home tuition course after the quarantine period. In addition to lessons, students will do high-quality home-based activities.

Book with confidence

LLE accepts all cancellations or postponements due to COVID-19 and full refunds will be given for all courses in 2021 if the course cannot go ahead. We are booking students for summer 2021 now, and if any reason is they cannot go ahead, then we can refund or postpone.

With every enquiry, we will send you our full, regularly updated COVID-safe policy.
