What we like about the school

  • Top rated social activities
  • Cornwall is one of the top destinations our students liked most

Babel Fish

  • A unique small school situated in a beautifully maintained public park in Newquay, with no desire to be the biggest language school in England and instead focusing on providing a high standard of teaching.

You will not be just another student, you will be part of the family.
  • The language school Babel Fish was founded in Cornwall, England UK in 2012.
  • Address: Trenance Heritage Cottages, Newquay, Cornwall, UK, , TR7 2HW - Cornwall, England UK (see on map)
