Course content

Students receive 15 hours a week of English tuition, with engaging lessons structured around weekly topic themes. Each afternoon is spent practising their English, while they explore famous attractions around London in supervised trips.

One of the great things about the course is that the class curriculum is integrated into the afternoon activities. Examples include Sherlock Holmes, the Royal Family, the history of the Government, the Beatles, Notting Hill and more.

Each week there is one full day excursion outside the city to visit other famous places in England, such as Oxford, Cambridge, Brighton and Windsor.

There is a full programme in the evenings too, with quizzes, night walking tours and film nights.

Students practise their English inside and outside of the classroom, for the best learning experience.
