English Language Tuition
English at Glastonbury
Millfield's main aim is to provide students with an engaging learning experience, therefore we provide at least 15 hours of English tuition per week.
All students attend 3 hours of English classes during the morning on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays with trained teachers. Students are tested on arrival and placed into classes after taking factors including level, age, gender and nationality into account.
In order to expose the students to two different styles of teaching and two different accents, each class is allocated two teachers.
All teaching materials are provided and are included in the cost of the course. On successful completion of the course, all students will receive a report and course certificate.
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.
