What our students say
“Chinese is a hard language to study, but the lessons at VICI are proving to be very methodical and fun!
Just what it takes to gather a bit of concentration after a long day at work. Well worth the money and the time spent, a good investment for the future”
“I have thoroughly enjoyed learning a new language with VICI over the last couple of years and have been impressed by the dedication, professionalism and expertise of all the staff.”
I’ve been at VICI Academy with my husband for over 13 months for private English lessons with great teachers,
April, Debbie and Gabriela, I would like to thank them, because I’ve improved my English and now I’m more confident.
Our Customer Care Promise
We are very proud of our language coaching team, proud of the quality of coaching and proud of what our team has managed to achieve over the years.
But ever since the academy opened 12 years ago and throughout the entire journey, we’ve been acutely aware that our success stands or falls on one thing: our ability to deliver to our customers. Our customers are everything to us. Without them, there would be no VICI, and that’s something we remind ourselves every single day.
And that’s why for many years now we’ve had a ‘Customer Care Promise‘ – 27 things that we promise to deliver for our customers including a money-back guarantee, which is unheard of in the language industry.
Where can you find us?
The VICI Academy UK is located in the quintessential, homely County of Berkshire, in the market town of Newbury.
Ideally located and accessible, we’re just a short train ride away from the heart of London! You can also access the historic city of Oxford and the royal borough of Windsor in under an hour.
