Students follow a daily programme of English language lessons in the morning, while afternoons are devoted to pursuing exciting activities with new friends.
All students receive 15 hours a week of English tuition and are encouraged to use English outside the classroom, during excursions and activities.
During the afternoon, students can choose from a number of activities, including sports and arts, with something for everyone. Sports can include tennis, football, hockey, dodgeball and cricket. Arts activities can include t-shirt painting, sketching, and drama workshops.
Excursions are also a big part of the course, with one full day and one half day trip to places of interest in the UK included every week.
