Morning Options

General English (Weeks 1-6)

This option is suitable for all abilities with students participating in English classes with trained teachers. On arrival students take a placement test (spoken and written) to assess their level of English, based on CEFR levels.  Students are then placed in multinational classes with those of a similar age and English level.  There are 3 hours of lessons in the mornings - 2 hours with 1 teacher and 1 hour with another, so classes get to experience different teaching styles and accents during their course.

Teachers involve students when planning their lessons in order to meet the interests and language learning needs of their class.  Each week there is a choice of 3 broad topics enabling teachers to plan an interesting and communicative lesson programme following ideas from one or more of the topics.  All lessons include communicative activities and functional language which can be used in real-life situations.

Global Young Leaders (Weeks 1-6)

14 - 17 years

This option has been designed as an alternative to General English and is suitable for students that have a minimum level of English of CEFR B2 and above or are native speakers. Effective communication is fundamental to the programme with a belief that it is not enough to be able to speak excellent English; one also has to have something valuable to say. 

The course encourages students to learn about themselves and about their place in the world.  It will challenge some perceptions and make students think about life in the 21st century.  The course aims to look at what being a leader really means and will examine this through weekly topics looking at some of the most important issues the world currently faces, helping students to be a leader of the future.

The course is structured to allow students to participate for one week or up to 6 weeks and to examine and develop their own ideas. They
have the chance to discuss, explore and challenge sometimes unfamiliar viewpoints and are encouraged to examine and review ideas
when negotiating with people from other backgrounds who may hold conflicting views.

The students are involved in the choice and design of the topics discussed; a different focus is taken each week reflecting issues that
students commonly mention as challenges which effect their own lives. These topics have included the environment, equality, poverty, press and media, war and technology. 

Guest speakers are invited to offer personal insights into the issues being examined. Students will also take their studies beyond the
classroom with visits to places within the local community.

Please note that there is one topic per week and the focus will change daily. Students will need to submit a written task prior to arrival. We reserve the right to move students to General English if we believe their English level is not B2 or above.
