Editors note: There is one photo associated with this press release.

Kaplan International Colleges has opened a "pop-up" English school in London this summer for the second year running.

The "pop-up" language school in Russell Square is in addition to Kaplan's two main flagship schools in Covent Garden and Leicester Square and has been opened to meet the demand from the growing number of people who want to learn English in London this summer.

The school, which is situated in the modern Westminster Kingsway College building on the historical Gray's Inn Road, opened on the July 2nd and will accommodate over 450 international students who will take English courses in London while experiencing everything life in the capital has to offer.

As well as providing homestay accommodation, Kaplan also has rooms to offer in one of London's most popular student residences, Nido King's Cross, which is only a seven minute walk away from the Russell Square school.

Staying in a luxury room at Nido King's Cross is a fantastic way to meet other students from all over the world and share in the special events that London has to offer during the summer of 2012 without having to worry about travel disruptions.

Rosie Baskerville, Deputy Principal of Kaplan International Colleges London Russell Square, said: "Kaplan Russell Square is a brilliant centre with everything you could need in a school - the convenience of the excellent onsite gym and café in addition to the lovely classrooms make it a such a comfortable environment for studying, and the fantastic team of staff are here to support students throughout their time with us."

In addition to the exciting events being hosted by London during 2012, Kaplan students will be able to take advantage of a social programme that includes trips to the Notting Hill Carnival and tourist attractions such as Madame Tussauds, The London Eye and The Houses of Parliament among others.

During the summer Kaplan also hosts boat parties which cruise down the Thames past all the iconic sights that line the river. The entire social programme is as varied as London itself and aims to provide students with an experience of a lifetime.

The school, which closes on August 24th, has bright and airy classrooms fitted with multimedia units and a well-resourced study centre providing additional online learning and study workshops. There is also free Wi-Fi throughout the college so students can bring their laptops and get online.
