Academic Programme at Street
Millfield’s main aim is to provide students with an engaging learning experience suitable to their ability. In the mornings, there are four options to choose from, each consisting of 15 hours per week; General English, Cambridge Assessment English - Exam Included (3 week course), Cambridge Assessment English - Preparation Only or Global Young Leaders. Those choosing Cambridge Assessment English - Exam Included and attending beyond week 3 can select either General English or Global Young Leaders for the remainder of their stay. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in choosing the Cambridge Assessment English - Preparation Only option.
Millfield English Language Holiday Courses are accredited by the British Council and teachers are appropriately trained to teach English as a Foreign Language.
For all morning options, all teaching materials are provided and are included in the cost of the course. On successful completion of the course, all students will receive an academic report, general report and course certificate.
The morning options take place on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays and students can further improve their English by choosing the Extra English afternoon option, click here for more information.
Course & Vocabulary Organiser
Each student choosing General English at all of our campuses or Cambridge Assessment English at Street will receive a Course and Vocabulary Organiser, written by Mark Greenow, which is an essential part of the academic programme and used in every lesson.
It is a “thinking notebook” with sections for each part of the English learning experience. It also includes a diary, which students are encouraged to complete, vocabulary and grammar exercises, and a mini-dictionary making each student’s learning experience unique.
Students on Global Young Leaders will receive a tailor-made Global Young Leader Organiser. Students will learn more about themselves, their strengths and weaknesses, their place in the world and develop their leadership qualities through a weekly topic.
Each student is also given an Achievement Card at the start of the course. The aim is to try to complete as much of the card as possible by performing well during lessons, impressing the campus managers and being an all-round good student.
At Glastonbury students work hard throughout the week to receive Star Cards for their house to win the house cup.
Young mentors guide, support, and help international students to develop friendships and model spoken English. They are residential and take part in all English lessons, activities, excursions, and social events.
The scholarship programme was first introduced in 2012 to maximise the use of English among international students during the courses.
