ENGLISH & MULTI-ACTIVITY PROGRAMME

Our most popular programme offered at four residential centres combines intensive English classes with a wide range of activities which vary day to day. The teaching programme is split between English Skills and English Workshops. For details of our other programmes, see each course centre page.


PLACEMENT TESTING

If you're unsure of your level, our online level check will help you choose the best Discovery option for you. On arrival, you will be given a written and oral test and placed into an English Skills class appropriate for your age and level.

This ensures maximum progress whilst encouraging additional interaction with new students.

You can request our pre-course 'level check' if you would like to find out what level you are and what programme is the most appropriate one for you.

ENGLISH WORKSHOPS

  • Learn and develop by researching, discussing, collaborating and creating. In these fun, task-based sessions you will explore new topic areas and build confidence in using new vocabulary and in important life skills (e.g. problem solving, critical thinking, teamwork).
  • Workshop topics vary week to week. Choose a workshop that most interests you e.g. British culture, pop art, drama, stop-motion animation, game design.
  • At the end of every week each class presents its achievements in front of the whole school - invaluable practice in developing confidence and presentation skills
