Since Lawton School was founded in 1973, we have helped thousands of people to learn English, Spanish, French and German. We currently have three modern facilities in Gijon and one in San Martin del Rey Aurelio.

Our dedication to quality, professionalism and customized attention has made us a standard of reference for language learning in Gijón.

Our teaching staff consists of qualified, experienced professionals using state-of-the-art materials and techniques in order to make classes pleasant and effective.

Our approach to language learning seeks to combine traditional techniques with the newest. Ex antiquis et novissimis optima – “The best of the old and the new”.

Lawton School offers courses for students of all ages, from children as young as 4 all the way through to retirees, although most are older children, teens, students and young professionals.

We also offer courses for special purposes, such as exam preparation, business, and other tailor-made courses. Classes are normally held on school premises but in the case of companies or other institutions they may be given elsewhere.
