With courses running from the end of June to the end of August, you can choose to study for as many weeks as you like.

We want your program to be as 'personally designed' as possible, so we ask you before you come, to tell us what you hope to achieve in your English language program and also what leisure activities you enjoy.

We also find out how you learn - so we can match our teaching methods to suit your learning style.

Some students learn best visually while others remember what they hear, others prefer to use their hands and many like a combination of all their senses stimulated.

We design a program that helps you to improve your English quickly and successfully and also a leisure programme that will be fun and exciting for you.

Thanks to the fact that we limit the school size to a maximum of 60, there is a great 'family' atmosphere and soon 'strangers' from other countries become friends for life - and don't forget you will be communicating in English all the time.

Summer Courses for Families:
Summer English courses for adults, juniors and teenagers, and young children all take place at three separate centres which are all located very close to each other, meaning that Mum & Dad are always nearby.

We synchronise timetables so parents, younger kids and also their older siblings attend one of our 3 separate, but closeby centres.

This allows them to easily enjoy a unique ‘whole family’ learning experience, but with each the needs of each family member carefully attended to, according to their age and level.
