We specialise in a wide range of courses for young to mature teenagers - age range 11years to 17 years.
All of our courses have Learning the English Language as the key aim. For this reason, our students are accommodated by local families. Thus the student is encouraged to converse in English with their hosts and are welcomed in to the home and the family for their stay. Students receive an appropriate level of care and also have a cultural experience by integrating in to the English family life. Students on a tutorial course are engaged in English teaching activities for at least 30 hours per week.
Students receive English teaching in groups of 4 students to 1 teacher. These courses can be of varying duration : 7,13, 27 nights - see Dates & Fees for details. Generally lessons will be held in the teacher's home and the weekday mornings are spent in a formal lesson setting as a small group.
Afternoons are spent with the same small group and teacher on mini excursions in the local area involving cultural and leisure activities.
