About English in Britain

Our Story

English in Britain started as "EFL CourseFinder" (published on disk) in 1989. In 1997 we moved the database to the Internet using the "EnglishinBritain" domains (.co.uk, .com etc.) The picture below shows the way we looked at different times in the past. See also our thirty years page. The service has had many accolades, including winning the BYTA Best Support Service award in 2015.

Today the award-winning service which delivers hundreds of students and agents every day to the websites of quality, accredited English language course providers in England, Scotland and Wales, uses the present responsive design website, the guide (over 100,000 downloads), and of course the app. Schools and colleges can use their chosen media - text, pictures, videos, brochures, virtual tours, links, translations, agent contacts - to showcase their offer, and back up their detailed course presentations, to bring the right students, parents and agents to their websites and invite bookings.
