As a traditional mercantile city, Ashford has spent centuries as a center of local transportation for neighboring towns and is the convergence point for five different train lines. It's located in a valley at the confluence point of the Great Stour and East Stour rivers, right where the Great Stour turns northwards to go through the Stour Gap and heads towards Canterbury, Sandwich and the English Channel.
One of the most economically developed parts of the country, Ashford maintains its traditional English spirit, which is reflected in its historic center with its unmistakeable pedestrian streets.

The College of Technology is a modern building close to the center of the city. It has wonderful facilities to welcome our students.
From Monday to Friday students will take 15 hours of English. The classes will be given during the morning in the classrooms, which are fully equipped.
On the first day of class, all of the students will take a mandatory level test in order to ensure their placement in the correct program.
Students will stay with carefully selected host families to ensure that students feel at home and practice their English as much as possible. They will stay in double rooms shared with another international student. Students will have a full board meal plan. The families are located at a maximum of 10 minutes away by bus, though the families located closest to the school are given preference.
In addition to the classes, the course includes a diverse program of athletic and cultural activities after class as well as an after-dinner program. During the week there will be half-day excursions (Canterbury, Leeds, Chatham Dockyard...) and there will be full day excursions on Saturdays.
The group that leaves from Barajas airport will be accompanied at all times by one of Enforex's Spanish counselors, who will accompany the students throughout the duration of their stay in England as well as return with them to Madrid.
Students will also have the constant supervision of the school's own counselors.
