Ect Language School is centred in the small market town of Newton Abbot, nestled in the South West of England. It is an ideal base from which to explore the historical and beautiful cities of Exeter & Plymouth. We are also close to the seaside towns of Torquay, Paignton, Teignmouth and Dawlish and a stone's throw away from the National Park of Dartmoor, where there are moorland ponies running wild, quaint towns and villages in which you can sample the famous Devon cream teas. Here you can ramble or do serious walking if you wish!! This area of S. West England is a very popular tourist destination and there are, therefore, many places of interest to visit.
