The course revolves around the four language skills; reading, writing, listening and a lot of emphasis is placed on the fourth skill, speaking. We prepare students for upcoming exams and specialise in the preparation for the prestigious Cambridge English Examinations for students studying English as another language. The programme, as stated, is intensive so we have included activities which still concentrate solely on the use of English, but are designed to enhance the use of the language in a more practical situation. Role plays include everyday occurrences, such as job interviews, purchasing tickets, asking for directions and other possible situations which will all help with future education, travel, careers and everyday communication in English. Subjects such as; History, Geography, and Global Issues are also studied during the lessons which expand vocabularies and provide a much broader understanding of the language. One lesson per day is dedicated to science where students conduct interesting and fun experiments, learn specific scientific terms and study science related topics. English classes are organised according to the individual student’s level and the examination which the pupil is specifically aiming for. Classes will be conducted concentrating on the different Cambridge Examination Levels including KET (Key English Test Level A2), PET (Preliminary English Test Level B1), Cambridge First Certificate B2, Cambridge Advanced Certificate C1 and Cambridge English Proficiency C2. Class sizes are kept to a maximum of ten students per class. Students will be expected to prepare and present PowerPoint presentations on a variety of subjects which they will have to research and investigate. During speaking lessons they will be filmed and given individual feedback on their performance. Grammar lessons will be interesting and taught in a very practical way. Throughout the course pupils will complete practice examination papers and exercises, in all skills, which will help in their exam preparation. During the Intensive English Course individual student’s progress is monitored very closely. Where areas of weakness are detected more focus will be given to that specific skill. Parents will be informed of the students’ progress and a final report will be issued at the completion of the course. The report will contain information regarding the student’s level, the work they have completed and a recommendation regarding which examination the child should sit and which areas need improvement. Courses are available in two or four week blocks.

Classes for all age groups are available. Ability levels are ascertained and students are placed into groups according to both their age and also their ability. Students studying Spanish will also complete basic lessons in science, and study history and geography as part of their Spanish lessons. The beginner level focuses on vocabulary, grammar rules and the structure of the language. Many topics will be explored and students will learn how to greet people, introduce themselves,and become familiar with words and phrases associated with everyday conversation. Intermediate classes are intended to extend students beyond basic vocabulary and grammar and take them to the next stage. Lessons will be based on the four skills; writing, reading, listening and speaking. Once again particular attention will be placed on the speaking skill to encourage students to communicate in Spanish and feel comfortable in doing so. Advanced classes are for students who already have a good level of Spanish and are looking at improving on this level. They may be studying for specific exams; such as GCSE Spanish, and need their skills to be polished to get them ready for these exams. Classes will revolve around the four language skills, reading, writing, speaking and listening with a greater emphasis on communication skills. Students will be required to research a topic and give presentations to fellow class members. Staying With a Spanish Host Family Students learning Spanish have the added advantage of staying with a Spanish Host Family. This helps to reinforce what has been learnt in Spanish language classes during the Summer School programme. Students will return to the host family in the evening and continue to speak Spanish. Similar to our British Host Families, our Spanish Host Families are also committed to helping to teach your child another language. In a home situation students learn the language at a different level and it is a very natural way of developing language skills. At the same time students will be enjoying a different cultural experience as they sample the Spanish way of life. Intensive Spanish Courses Intensive Spanish Courses are available to students who would like to concentrate solely on studying Spanish without participating in other activities. Eight lessons of Spanish per day will enhance their language skills greatly and help prepare them for any upcoming examinations. To break up the week there will be a cultural tour each Wednesday where students will visit Valencia, Xativa and local towns to visit museums, castles, markets, cathedrals and many other special places of interest. These excursions will be conducted only in Spanish and are a great way to help develop a student’s understanding of the Spanish language.

We personally choose the British or Spanish Family which is most suited to your child’s needs. All families are assessed and we have the up-most trust in them. We look at the family situation and the common hobbies and interests that your children and the Host Family may have. We encourage the Host Families to participate in a series of games and activities which help to strengthen the relationship between your child and the Host Family and also encourages speaking in the target language.
