English Courses in Atlanta

Enroll in EF’s English courses in Atlanta and experience the charms of the American south on an authentic university campus.

With a tradition of Southern hospitality, Atlanta just might be America’s friendliest big city. Our English courses in Atlanta are held on the campus of historic Oglethorpe University in the city’s leafy Buckhead district. Just a short subway ride from Midtown and just one stop to the Lenox Square shopping and dining area, you’ll get a taste of the big city from the comfort of a modern American campus.

Study English in Atlanta and immerse yourself in the university experience. Picnic with friends between classes on the campus green spaces and kick around a soccer ball in the shadow of the university’s gothic architecture. As a student in EF’s English courses in Atlanta you’ll have access to the athletic fields, tennis courts and state-of-the–art library.

America’s Southern belle

Both culturally and historically, Atlanta is one of the most important cities in the United States. The capital of Georgia has something for everyone, from world-class museums to a thriving music scene. And still, the best thing going for the city is the genuine Southern hospitality that’s more than just a cliché.

Students in EF’s English courses in Atlanta can experience big city attractions in this friendly metropolis. The glittering skyline of the city is punctuated by Piedmont Park, 180-acres of lush woods, bike paths and the Lake Clara Meer. Step into American history on a visit to the Martin Luther King Jr. Historic Site. Tour the headquarters of CNN and Coca-Cola. Lose your voice cheering on the Atlanta Braves baseball team at Turner Field. Spend an afternoon strolling through Grant Park or discover a world underwater at the world’s largest Aquarium.
