In our core programme for English learners, students accelerate their skills through inspiring activities & projects in a British-style school experience, enhanced through London excursions.
During the English School Experience, students boost their language through inspiring activities, projects and London excursions. The programme provides students with a ‘British style’ school experience which develops a command of English language skills in academic subjects.
Each week focuses on a particular theme based around culture, history, commerce or the environment. The thematic nature of the course means students learn within a meaningful context and will not repeat the same lesson or excursion, no matter how long they stay.
Every student takes a placement test on their first day so the academic
team can group children appropriately by the level of English and age.
