English & Activities

Boost your English and have a great experience

Language classes - learn by doing

You will have 15 full hours of lessons each week from 09.00 to 12.30 Monday to Friday. This includes the written and speaking test, induction and cultural lesson on the first day. You will be in class based on your level with students of different nationalities.

Our teachers are trained in the communicative method of language teaching and will help you develop your skills in English communication with your classmates about interesting topics. Your lessons will be more relaxed than what you experience in school. You will get no grades so you can relax and not be afraid to make mistakes, as we believe they are important if you want to stretch yourself as a speaker of English.

Excursions - see the best of England

Have you heard of Durdle Door? It is a stunning sight in England on the Jurassic Coast and one of our afternoon trips which we offer as part of English & Activities on Wednesday afternoons. Weymouth is in a fantastic location and, within easy reach, there are many great half-day trips our students enjoy visiting. 

On Saturdays, you go on full-day trips to iconic places such as Stonehenge & Salisbury, London, or Oxford. Or if you want a mix of history and excellent shopping, Exeter is the place for you. In the fashionable city of Bath you can see glorious Georgian architecture. For a day full of adventure combining dramatic coastlines, with a lovely seaside town, a ride on a steam train across the countryside in true Harry Potter style, visiting a traditional village with a castle ruin, go on our Purbeck day-trip. Be aware, this involves walking!
