Covid-19

We will follow UK Government guidance with regard to safety measures in the classroom. The maximum student number in class will be reduced to 8, we will implement safe-distancing, staggered break times, regular thorough cleaning, hand sanitiser will be provided, classrooms will be well ventilated. 

Our homestay hosts will provide a safe, comfortable and friendly place to stay.  If you, or a member of your homestay family, becomes ill, you will self-isolate together.

Our social programme has been adjusted so that we only do things that are Covid-safe. As a result we are unable to offer our traditional programme. As restrictions ease, we will develop the programme to provide a fuller experience.

Please see our Covid-19 Re-opening Guidelines listed under our policies and please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

Coming to the UK: What do you have to do?

Some of our students have to self-isolate, take COVID-19 tests and complete forms. Below is a video of one of our students explaining what it was like for him. Always refer to the UK government website to find out what you need to do.

About the course

Not everyone wants to spend all day in a classroom. Therefore, if you choose this course, you will spend your morning in class and your afternoon playing sports or participating in outdoor or indoor activities (where basic instruction is required, this will be provided by fully-trained personnel).

Perfect for a short refresher course or a summer vacation course.

Due to the Covid-19 situation, there may be times when other students join the class online (hybrid learning). To enable the class to interact with one another, everyone will be asked to connect online. You will receive access details in advance. All students need to bring either a laptop or a tablet to take part in our courses. 

Objectives

Our English + Action course is designed to improve your overall level of English to make you more confident, fluent and able to communicate in different situations. You will have the chance to expand your knowledge of grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation, and the academic programme is designed to develop all four language skills: speaking, listening, reading and writing. This course also gives students the opportunity to try a variety of activities and adventure sports.

Outcomes

On this course, students will improve their English language skills for study, work, travel or for pleasure, as well as benefiting from all the activities they take part in.

Activities

Depending on the time of year and weather conditions, the afternoon activities may include a selection from the following: swimming, tennis, surfing, paddle-boarding, golf, badminton, skating, aerial runway, climbing wall, laser tag, escape rooms, gym, horse riding.

Participants can join the other students in the College for Friday afternoon and Saturday excursions (included in course fee) and for the evening social programme.
