Course content
Students follow a daily programme of 15 hours
of English language lessons in the morning,
while afternoons are spent learning outside of
the classroom through exciting activities with
new friends.
During the afternoon, students can choose from
a number of sports and arts activities, with
something for everyone. Sports can include
tennis, football, basketball and swimming.
Arts activities can include t-shirt painting,
sketching, and performance arts.
Study trips are also a big part of the course, with
one full-day and one half-day trip to places of
interest in the UK included every week. Example
trips include: a full-day trip to Legoland and the
Sea Life Centre and a walking tour and ferry ride
in Liverpool. Half-day trips include Chester Zoo
and Llangollen Railway.
Students practise their English inside and outside
of the classroom, for the best learning experience.
In the evenings, Discover English students will
have an activity programme with a mix of sports,
arts and crafts, and other activities such as
quizzes and film night.

Course content
Unlike our other Young Learner English programmes,
this course has English lessons in both the morning and
in the afternoon: 21 hours of English tuition per week
by a qualified English teacher. It is an intensive course
across English reading, writing, listening and
speaking skills.
It is not all hard work though – English Plus
classes are lively, interactive and fun. Students
are encouraged to speak English at all times,
and benefit from using the language with
others their own age in different social
situations.
Students will have 15 hours of general
English lessons with the rest of the
school then six additional hours
focused on improving their spoken
English with an exam at the end of
their course.
Students also participate in
sports, arts and crafts, and
other activities. Aimed at
practising English through fun
and teamwork, the English Plus
programme proves that it is possible
to work hard and still have fun!
Study trips are also a big part of the course,
with one full-day and one half-day trip to places
of interest in the UK included every week. Example
trips include: a full-day trip to Manchester with a
walking tour of the city and entry to the famous Old
Trafford football stadium, home to Manchester United,
and a day trip to Liverpool with a walking tour and
ferry ride. Half-day trips include Chester Zoo and
Llangollen Railway.
There are on-site evening activities organised by IH
staff every night, including fashions shows, discos, film
nights, and treasure hunts.

THE BRITISH
 COUNCIL

Care of students and safeguarding under 18s
are both areas of strength in our British Council
inspection.
“There is a genuine commitment to student welfare
across the organisation, including a detailed welfare
manual, welfare managers at each centre and an
explicit student welfare role for house supervisors.”

   the quality of the programmes and teacher
   development
