LAL Torbay Language School is located in the English town of Paignton. It's a resort area of Torbay where people come to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the big cities. It is often called the "English Riviera" because of its close proximity to beaches and beautiful scenery. Near the school there is a zoo, water park, and amusement parks.

Students can go down the slides in the amusement park and water park. Sports grounds and a skating rink are also open. The center is equipped with ramps and adaptations for people with disabilities. The excursion program includes trips to Agatha Christie's favorite city, the filming site of the Doctor Who series, and Dartmouth National Park, where the ponies walk. In the evenings, kids stay with host families and watch original movies or go in for bowling. 

Children are accommodated in host families. This allows them much more frequent practice of the language and opportunities to learn about the peculiarities of British life. On average families are located within 30-40 minutes walk from the campus or 15 minutes by bus. Meals are served three times a day, and children have their own lunch.
