Homestay Short Courses

Groups may arrive any day of the week.  Bookings can be taken for groups of 12 students or more for a 7 or 10 night stay.  The maximum class size is 15.  Larger groups would be divided in two.  Qualified teachers will provide different learning styles to suit various ages and ability levels.  Paired and group work encourages participation in class and builds students’ confidence when speaking English.  The aim is to promote conversational English to enable students to practise their language skills in everyday life in Britain.  In lessons, during trips and with their homestay families students will have the opportunity to interact with teachers, guides, shopkeepers and family members.
