English Language Programme
English classes take place during the morning, delivered by qualified EFL teachers. Lessons will work on vocabulary, conversation, pronunciation and be structured to deliver an effective and progressive learning experience for students. On camp and during lessons and activities, students are expected to speak English at all times to further improve their language skills.
We have developed an English language curriculum that is structured to deliver an effective and progressive learning experience for students. On camp and during lessons and activities, students are expected to speak English at all times to further improve their language skills. The programme is constructed around the integration between British and International students to allow for language development in a practical, real-life environment.
On the first day, students are assessed and placed in small classes according to their ability level. Their progress is reviewed and evaluated throughout their stay. Our English Programme is designed around the CEFR framework. Our English teachers are all qualified and selected for their ability to deliver the curriculum in an engaging and enjoyable way.
From Monday to Friday, our International Students will join our UK students for their afternoon activities. This is a brilliant opportunity to practice their conversational English plus meet local students.
Every student receives a minimum of 15 hours of English tuition per week. We work with a class size of up to 12 students, delivered by experienced and engaging English teachers. Each student receives an English report and certificate and we support our international students when taking part in their Academy sessions.
Supporting students by monitoring their progress is a crucial aspect of language development, which is why our qualified teachers also assist on activity sessions and excursions at points during the summer, ensuring that learning can take place both in and outside of the classroom. All our specifically trained activity instructors have experience working with international students, again to allow for progress to be monitored and for staff and students to play an active role in students’ experience on camp.
Assessment and Report
All students will be closely monitored in class to ensure that they are making progress with their English language study. All work will be marked and feedback will be given by the teacher. At the end of the course all students will receive a report that shows the progress made and offers advice on how best to continue their learning when they are back home.
For students looking to work on their English, we offer 5 additional hours of English tuition each week. This will be taught in small groups and allows students to focus on any areas they may be wishing to improve.
