Winter and Summer Schools

Winter and Summer Schools

The Summer and Winter Schools are designed to offer students the opportunity to join an active English language learning programme. 

Themed classes are designed to focus on improving student’s speaking and listening skills and develop their confidence in English.  We also focus on vocabulary, grammar, reading and writing. Using contemporary teaching methods, our approach is to study and learn English in an interactive and inclusive environment. All study weeks include exciting midweek trips and activities, with classroom work, tasks and projects linked together to maximize language and cultural learning. Students will receive both a placement and progress tests and will be assessed through report writing and presentation.

We also offer an exciting way to learn English alongside a specific subject area. Our English Plus+ Summer Schools run for 3 or 4 weeks, and students will participate in 1 or 2 weeks specialised English with 2 weeks content-based study.
