These summer English courses have been designed for students aged 11 to 17 years old and take place at Chichester University‘s campuses (Bishop Otter and Bognor Regis).
Courses’ intensity ranges from 15 to 20 hours per week. Students are assessed upon arrival so that they can be placed in the most suitable class.
All courses include a rich schedule of sport and socio-cultural activities that run in the afternoons and evenings, as well as weekend excursions to some of the most interesting destinations in the UK.
Students will be picked up from the airport, taken to the campus and welcomed by our staff.
Lessons. Will normally be in the morning, from 9 to 13, with two breaks. On day one, students will sit a test to assess their level of English and establish the class allocation.
Classes. We try to integrate groups wherever possible, but sometimes teachers will work with closed groups of a single nationality.
Support 24/7. Students’ welfare is our priority and they can talk to us about any problem and or challenge they’re facing. Our designated safeguarding staff is always on site.
Your First Day at School!
Supervision ratio. In class and during social activities (other than sports) 1:15. During Sport activities and Excursions 1:10.
Campus. Classrooms, bedrooms and canteen are all inside the campus, therefore students can move around on foot. The city centre is also at walking distance from the campus.
Excursions. Students will be travelling by train when going to destinations like London, Brighton, Portsmouth. They will be travelling by coach when going to places like Winchester, Oxford, Cambridge.
Why do we like traveling by train? Trains are faster than coaches because they don’t get stuck in traffic! Besides, they take students to the very heart of the city. They are comfortable and allow students to mingle with locals and live like British people do.
We adopt a practical, context-based, communicative approach to language learning. This simply means:
Basing the lessons on the learners and their lives, choosing everyday topics they can easily relate to;
Making sure students practise the language as much as possible by interacting with the teachers and amongst each other, learning while having fun.
